Although Google Nexus 7 was not announced at the Google Pixel latest event, analysts and fans are still waiting for leaks and new reports on this smartphone.
Rumour has it the latest Google device will be released by the end of the year as the ideal gift for the upcoming holiday season. If the Nexus 7 will hit the market in December, it is expected to become a high-demand product in just a few days.
The first leak about this model appeared in early September when Google Huawei 7 built-in tablet was announced to come out by the end of 2016. It means that this tablet might as well be a hint that the latest Nexus 7 is on the way but it might have a different name.
Other reports claim that this device will be called Pixel 7 instead of Nexus 7 because there is the chance that the company will no longer retain this series and focus mainly on the Pixel line. Still, nothing is known for sure because Google hasn’t made any official statement yet.
According to other sources, the new device might be developed by HTC. The company’s officials are excited about their partnership on the Pixel smartphone line. It wouldn’t be the first time HTC and Google work together as they have previously manufactured the first Android product on the market entitled HTC Dream as well as the first ground-breaking Nexus One.
Plus, the HTC Desire and the award-winning HTC One function on the latest Android version. An HTC spokesperson added that the company is proud that Google trusted HTC to be its partner for such successful devices, especially the Pixel series.
Regarding the full list of specifications, the new Nexus 7 will most likely replace the Nougat operating system with the Andromeda OS, while it will run on an Adreno 530 GPU and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 backed by 4GB of RAM and a built-in internal storage of 64GB. Plus, it will feature a microSD card as well to expand the storage up to at least 256GB.
Under the hood, the Nexus 7 will probably have a generous display supported by a large 5100 mAh battery and a USB Type-C port for a quick charging time of around 90 minutes.
