Nexus 7 2017 To Become Google’s Best Tablet?
Right now the internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations surrounding Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 tablet. Everything started from a twitter post made bade by Evan Blass, which is a known and reliable leakster. Evan Blass posted an incomplete list of the device’s specs and also said that it will be launched during the fourth quarter of 2016, but seeing that December is coming to an end and Google has yet to unveil the tablet we might have to wait a little more before we can get our hands on it.
What makes the tablet so special is the fact that it’s rumored to be powered by Andromeda OS, an operating system that’s the result of combining Android OS and Chromebook OS. The operating system is said to be so powerful that it can provide Nexus 7 users with the ability to run the same operations they would on a desktop PC.
Regarding the specs leaked by Evan Blass, the tablet will be equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor that’s going to be paired with 4GB of RAM. The device will be available in two different variants, one that runs on Android OS and one that uses Andromeda OS. This is seen as a direct shot towards Apple’s iPad Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2.
Other rumors are suggesting that Google will actually rebrand the Nexus tablet as a Pixel device. The reasoning behind that is that ever since Google launched the “Google-made” devices, the US based company has been trying to kill off the Nexus line in order to make room for Pixel and Pixel XL. Right now all we can do is wait and see if all these rumors are proven to be true but that will happen during the third quarter of 2017, when the tablet will be unveiled.
