Google Nexus 7 2016 to Get A 'Pixel' Name? Budget-Tablet Running Android Andromeda Launched This Year [RUMOR]
Google Nexus 7 2016 edition is likely getting several revamps as new leaks suggest so. Here's a brief update on what the tech writers have been speculating about the tablet.
Google Nexus 7 2016 to get a 'Pixel' name?
The rumor sparks after Google Pixel was introduced to the public. Many analysts have speculated that Google may ditch the Nexus logo and place 'Pixel' instead, Mobipicker reported. However, the case is different since Google Pixel phones are purely made by Google, while the upcoming Nexus 7 tablet is rumored to be built by Huawei.
What corroborates the speculation is the idea of a decent, cheap yet durable tablet that has been attached to Android tablet so far, The Verge has learned. If it is to be branded with Pixel, it would not have that kind of quality at an affordable pricing.
Google Nexus 7 2016 rumored specifications
Famous leaker Evan Blass took Twitter to spill the technical details of the upcoming tablet. Blass said that Nexus 7 will be built by Huawei, and the leak goes on to say that it will sport 7-inch screen and 4GB RAM. He also made a mention of 'end of year' release date. Other components include Snapdragon 820 processor and 64GB of internal storage.

After Google introduces the mash-up OS, Andromeda platform, the Google Nexus 7 tablet could likely run the OS instead of Android Nougat.
Google Nexus 7 2016 release date
The Nexus tablet device is expected to have a 2016 release date, which could mean that it will not be long until Google introduces the Nexus tablet to the market. There is no good guesses whether or not the tablet will still bear Nexus or Pixel logo instead.
