Google Nexus 7 2016 Release Date Postponed? Check Out The New Release Date!

Close

Amid speculations still hinting a June release for the much-awaited Google Nexus 7 2016, new rumors doing rounds suggests Google's upcoming mini tablet computer will not make an appearance before the fourth quarter after having skipped the recently concluded I/O Conference.

Regrettably for the Google Nexus' fans, the I/O Conference wrapped up without unveiling Google's flagship device that everyone is looking forward to. This imply that people waiting for the Google Nexus 7 release will have to wait until Q4 2016. Speculations hint a possible October launch date.

Considering Google has always launched its Nexus devices in the month of October, it won't be a surprise if the search engine giant repeats the Nexus release pattern in 2016 as well, The Bit Bag reported.

Popular tipster Evan Blass fanned the rumors claiming that two new Android N devices, internally named as S1 and M1 are in the works at Google. The tech giant will reportedly team up with HTC for developing these devices.

Blass took to his Twitter handle to divulge that the rumored Nexus 2016 editions have been named HTC Scailfish and Marlin.

The highly-anticipated Nexus 2016 devices will reportedly run Google's upcoming OS version, Android N, thus becoming the first devices in the world to come pre-loaded with Android N.

If rumors proved true, either the HTC Scailfish or Marlin will feature 3D Touch-like functionality, Counsel Head reported.

One of HTC's forthcoming Nexus handsets will boast a 5-inch display, while the high-end version will feature a mammoth 5.5-inch display. Reports further hint that Google might take wraps off an updated version of the Nexus 6P smartphone. An upgraded version of the Google Nexus 6P recently made an appearance on GFXBench benchmarking site.

As far as specs are concerned, the new model will be reportedly powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset, with 4 GB RAM replacing 3 GB of RAM on the Nexus 6P, and the upcoming Google OS, Android N and Marline motherboard.

Nexus 6P features a 5.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display (1440 x 2560 resolution). It will come with a 12.3 megapixel camera with a laser autofocus and dual-LED flash and 8 megapixel front camera. Nexus 6P packs a 3450 mAh battery.
