Google Nexus 7 (2017) is Looking to Become a Top Competitor this Year
Evan Blass managed to make the entire Android community enthusiastic about a brand new tablet last year when he uploaded a document that presented the specs which are going to be featured by Nexus 7 (2017). A couple of years have passed since Google launched the latest Nexus 7 and everyone is highly anticipating Google to come with a new tablet offering this year.
Even though Google has yet to acknowledge Nexus 7 (2017)’s existence, the internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations about it. We have rounded the most liable ones and we’re going to present them right now. This way we can get an idea of what to expect.
Google Nexus 7 (2017): Launch Date
The “pure” Android tablet was expected to arrive in 2016 but sadly this didn’t happen. Speculations are pointing towards the fact that Huawei who was supposed to manufacturer the device didn’t see eye to eye with Google. The Android parent didn’t allow the Chinese manufacturer to engrave its logo on the device. Huawei didn’t agree with these terms because it’s still a young company and its main goal is to establish its brand as a household name.
Nexus 7 (2017) is now expected to arrive in somewhere around the end of 2017. Google is known for always unveiling its devices towards the end of the year, this has also happened with the company’s latest Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones that were launched in October. This is why we believe Nexus 7 (2017) is going to see the light of day in late 2017.
Google Nexus 7 (2017): Operating System
There are many reasons to why the entire Android community is anxious to get a glimpse of this tablet and the biggest one of them is that Google is reportedly going to install a brand new operating system on it. The operating system we are talking about has been dubbed as “Andromeda OS” and it’s supposedly a combination of Android OS and Chromebook OS.
Additionally, Andromeda OS is expected to give Nexus 7 (2017) owners the same execution capabilities PC owners have. In fact, rumor has it that Google wants to slowly but surely move all of its devices onto Andromeda OS similar to what Microsoft is doing with Windows 10 and Windows Mobile. Nonetheless, everything we know right now is based on rumors and is subjective to change.
