Google Nexus 7 (2017) Will Not Run on Andromeda OS
The Android parent is expected to refresh its tablet offering lineup this year with Nexus 7 (2017). Seeing as two months have already passed since 2017 started, it means that Google is getting closer to unveil the device. Even though Google has yet to confirm that Nexus 7 (2017) is indeed coming, the entire Android community keeps on speculating about it. The reason why this tablet is so highly anticipated is because it’s expected to ship with Andromeda OS instead of Android OS.
Google Nexus 7 (2017): Operating System
Even though the entire Android community is highly enthusiastic about this new operating system, Google’s Android Senior Vice President said that it doesn’t exist. According to rumors, Andromeda OS is the result of the combination between Android OS and ChromeBook OS. Sadly, Hiroshi Lockheimer announced that Android and Chrome will never merge together. This means that Andromeda OS was a rumor all along.
On the other hand, this means that Nexus 7 (2017) is going to run on Android OS. We can be more than sure that it’s going to ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box if not better. Google has yet to confirm the official launch date for Nexus 7 (2017) so we can’t know what operating system version will be live during that period in order to make a correct prediction.
Google Nexus 7 (2017): Hardware Specs
As previously mentioned, Nexus 7 (2017) is the most talked about tablet in the Android community therefore we already have an idea of what’s expected of it. First off, the tablet will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor. This is the best mobile chipset available on the market right now and it’s definitely going to give Nexus 7 (2017) an edge over its competition. In addition, Google will pair the processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB of on-board storage space.
From what we can tell right now, Google is more than surely going to take the market by storm when Nexus 7 (2017) comes out. Also, taking in consideration that Google hasn’t refreshed its tablet offering for a while now we can be sure that all Android fans will flock over to it.
