Google Nexus 7 – The First Device To Run On Andromeda OS
One of the most anticipated devices of 2016 is Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet. Earlier this year some reports surfaced which pointed out that in order to create the tablet Google teamed up with Huawei and that had the whole tech community going nuts. Even though all Google fans are enthusiastic, Google has yet to unveil or acknowledge that they are working on the tablet.
Regarding the partnership between Google and Huawei, that rumor was proven to be true by Huawei’s CEO himself. The partnership didn’t last too long because Huawei didn’t agree to Google’s terms. Huawei’s CEO stated that Google wanted the device wear only the Google brand and the Chinese tech giant wasn’t interested to be an anonymous manufacturer.
The known leakster Evan Blass posted a leaked list on his Twitter page that included the tablet’s specs and its release date. According to the leaked information, the tablet will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor that’s going to be coupled with 4GB of RAM and a rather large 5,100 mAh battery. The twitter post also showed that the tablet will be available in only the 64GB variant, but that may change along the way. Regarding the release date, Evan Blass twitted that December 2016 will be the release date, but seeing that December is here and Google has yet to unveil the new gadget the launch date probably has been pushed back to 2017.
On another note, what makes the tablet stand out is that its rumored to run on Andromeda OS. Tech analysts are saying that Andromeda OS is the result of mashing Android OS with Chrome OS. We can’t know exactly what features will be included in the new OS, but we can be sure its UI will resemble the one desktops use.
