Google Nexus 7 (2017) – What’s Causing the Setback

If you ask any loyal Android fan if Nexus 7 (2017) is ever going to come out they will say yes. Sadly, Google doesn’t want to share its opinion and its keeping every information about Nexus 7 (2017) under wraps. No one knows why the Android parent is being so silent about its upcoming tablet, but we have some theories which we will present them right now.

Manufacturing Problems

As everyone might know already, Google was supposedly going to unveil the revamped Nexus 7 during last year but this didn’t happen. Many believe that Google was actually all set and ready to unveil news about the tablet but Huawei had a sudden change of heart. The Chinese manufacturer was the one who took the job to produce Nexus 7 but then changed its mind when it found out that Google will not allow it to put its brand on it.

While it might seem like a minor problem and that Huawei is overeating, this isn’t the case. Huawei has made sure to announce to the entire world that it’s goal is to become the biggest and the best smartphone manufacturer in the world and not being able to put its branding on the device made the deal unacceptable.


According to rumors and speculations, Google has already found a replacements for Huawei. The Android parent is going to collaborate with HTC in order to produce Nexus 7 (2017) and we’re going to see the tablet somewhere around the end of 2017. Even though all of this is based on rumors, it’s highly likely to happen since HTC is also the company that helps Google produce Pixel and Pixel XL.

Operating System

One of the reasons why Nexus 7 (2017) is so highly anticipated is because it is said to ship with a brand new Google operating system that’s been dubbed as Andromeda OS. Sadly, we need to inform readers that this is not going to happen. Well, at least that’s what Hiroshi Lockheimer (Head of Android) is saying. This means that Nexus 7 (2017) is going to ship with the upcoming Android 8.0 OS which also means that we might have to wait a while since Android 8.0 is still being developed right now.
