Search giant Google has been shrouded with rumors lately about its anticipated Google Nexus 7 tablet that many believed would be launched next year. Many are speculating whether it will be re branded to Pixel 7, following the trend set by Google Pixel X and Pixel XL as successors of Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
The guessing game has again started to erupt as to the name of the tablet and when it will be launched. Latin Post shared that Nexus tablet will not run Android Nougat 7.0 but it could be using the hybrid OS that Google has developed, the Andromeda. Reports added that this operating system allows a tablet to get Chrome features into Android and this could mean a 'more ambitious' project.
Google Nexus 7 should the company retained its name will be device that has desktop-class performance. The source added that an Andromeda hybrid OS enables a device to have a laptop experience, much like how Apple has done with iPad Pro.
As projected by various tech bloggers, this promising high-end tablet would have a quality high definition screen with a 7-inch 1440 X 2560 display. As to the design, Tech Radar emphasized that there are no design rumors yet, however, it projected a design similar to the Pixel and Pixel XL which would have a two-tone metal body. When it comes to its operating system and power, a Snapdragon 820 processor is likely to be used and 4GB of RAM.
Other features include a 64GB of storage and a fingerprint scanner and another thing that most certainly not in the list of features would be a microSD slot, given that Nexus devices never have them. Information also circulate about its 13MP camera, which is a high megapixel count for a tablet, however, another possibility could be a 12MP snapper given that Pixel and Pixel XL plus Huawei P9 has this feature.
