Google Nexus 7 Tablet Release Date with Powerful Specs
Google is expected to announce the new Nexus 7 tablet at its upcoming I/O Developers conference which will take place this month, after a few months ago, rumors about this slate’s existence started surfacing online. The first two generation Nexus 7 tablets were built by Asus and they were released in 2012 and 2013, respectively, and this year, the American search engine has teamed up with HTC to create the new model.
HTC is Google’s first partner, which is the creator of the Nexus One smartphone that was released in 2010. Four years later, the Taiwanese manufacturer returned with an 8.9-inch tablet (Nexus 9) featuring dual front-facing speakers with HTC BoomSound, and Google has given this company another chance. However, these are only rumors, as Google hasn’t confirmed its plans for this year, so we don’t know for sure if the Nexus 7 is in development and will be released in 2016.
If the tablet will arrive this fall, it will boast a force touch feature similar to what Apple has brought to its iPhone 6S. Many websites have reported that the Nexus 7 will come with incredible specs and features, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and will be available in two variants. HTC will release a 7-inch tablet and a 5-inch smartphone, but other rumors suggest that both devices will have an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor and will support 4GB of RAM.
Also, the devices will provide a card slot for expanding the internal memory up to 2TB and the smartphone will have a 3000mAh battery, but it’s not sure if the tablet will have the same battery capacity or higher. The previous Nexus 9 tablet built by HTC was powered by a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 Denver processor and had a Li-Po 6700 mAh battery which provided 9 hours and a half of talk time over 3G.
