Google Nexus 7 2016 Release Date, Specs & Rumors Round-Up [VIDEO]; Branded As Pixel 7?
The recently concluded Google Pixel event did not turn out how some zealous Nexus fans were hoping. The search giant did not mention the much awaited Nexus 7 2016 during the event.
Google finally took the wraps off its highly anticipated Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones during the Oct. 4 launch event, but the company opted to remain tight lipped regarding the equally anticipated Nexus 7 2016. Despite the lack of official confirmation, some optimistic Nexus fans still believe that the much lauded Nexus 7 will hit the store shelves before the end of 2016.
Many speculate that the said Nexus 7 2016 will be the last in the Nexus series as Google will be getting rid of it in favor of the Pixel line. Meanwhile, others claim that Nexus 7 2016 will come with the Andromeda OS rather than the Nougat operating system, NeuroGadget reported.
Andromeda OS is an operating system that is said to be a combination of the Android and ChromeOS. Just a day ahead of the Google Pixel event, BGR reported that Google will also unveil a 7-inch smartphone during the event; however, the event will not center on the debut on the said device.
It looks like gadget freaks who have been restlessly waiting for the company to announce the Google Nexus 7 2016 release date are in for a really long wait. Although several reports doing rounds online are pretty consistent on some of the speculated features, readers should bear in mind that these are mere speculations and should be taken with a grain of salt.
But some still believe there's hope. Considering that the Google Pixel and Pixel XL sport 5-inch and 5.5-inches screens respectively, it wouldn't be surprising if Google comes out with a larger Nexus 7 2016.
Much to the dismay of Nexus' huge fanbase, it seems that the wait for the Google Nexus 7 2016 release date announcement will not come fruition. On the day of the Google Pixel event, tipster Evan Blass retweeted David Ruddock's announcement that Google will continue to keep the Nexus device under wraps, at least at the moment.
