Google Nexus 7 (2017) vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 – 2017 Will Be A Good Year
The internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations about Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 (2017) and it all started with a leaked hardware list that came from the known leakster Evan Blass. The tablet was initially going to be launched during 2016 but it seems that Google changed its mind and postponed the date until 2017. Today we will take Google’s upcoming tablet and pin against Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Tab S3 and see if Nexus 7 (2017) presents a threat towards Samsung.
The South Korean based company is known for creating some of the best display technologies and that can be clearly seen in the displays featured by the company’s flagship devices. Samsung will equip its upcoming tablet with the same Super AMOLED panel technology that’s going to be paired with 4K display resolutions and the device will ship in the 8 inch and 9.7 inch variants. On the other hand, Google will partner up with Huawei once again and create the tablet together. The tablet will feature a 7 inch AMOLED display that features a lower 2K Quad HD panel.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Samsung will equip their tablet with its own octa-core Exynos 8890 processor that’s going to be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage depending on the model. Traditionally, Google equips their devices with chipsets made by Qualcom and according to reports the new Nexus 7 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 which will then be paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space. Now onto the battery, the Nexus 7 (2017) will feature a rather large 5100 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 while the standard Galaxy Tab S3 model will feature a smaller 4000 mAh battery and the 9.7 inch variant will sport a bigger 5870 mAh one.
Both devices are going to be Android powerhouses but Google’s Nexus 7 (2017) seems to have an edge over Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3. Regarding the price, we can’t know that for sure right now because the two tablets have yet to be released but we can expect Samsung’s tablet to priced around $420 while Google’s tablet will be priced around the same range.
