Google Nexus 7 or Pixel 7 – What’s there to know?


Last year Google introduced the first ever “Google-made” smartphones but the company was also expected to refresh the Nexus 7 lineup. While the Android parent created its own made devices, the tech giant was still required to partner up with another tech company in order to create the highly anticipated tablet and Google wasn’t able to find a manufacturer that agrees to its terms. Tech fans everywhere were disappointed to hear that Google wasn’t going to launch the device during 2016 but on the bright side, we have something to look forward to.

Hardware Specs

The reason why Nexus 7 (2017) is surrounded by so much buzz is because the past few months have been filled with leaked rumors and speculations about the device’s impressive specs and features. In fact, the first leaked rumor came from the liable leakster known as Evan Blass. The leaked document only contained partial information but it did pointed out that Google will equip the tablet with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor. That’s not all of it, Evan Blass also stated that Google’s upcoming device will feature an internal memory which can be expanded up to 2TB.

Operating System

According to rumors and speculations, Nexus 7 (2017) will run on a new operating system known only as Andromeda OS. This has Android fans all riled up, especially since tech experts are reporting that this operating system is the result of the combination between Android OS and Chromebook OS. More importantly, Andromeda will give users the same execution capabilities a PC user has.


Ever since Google adventured into the smartphone market with the Pixel lineup, the US tech giant started killing off the Nexus brand. The tech community is speculating that the upcoming Google tablet will actually be introduced under the Pixel brand. While naming the upcoming device Pixel 7 might boost the Pixel brand, it might also affect the tablet’s sales percentages. The reason behind this is that the Nexus brand is worldwide recognizable while the Pixel one isn’t.
