Ever since Google started to partner up with different mobile manufacturers to release their line of electronic devices, fans have gotten hooked n the Nexus phones. Previously, Google has already partnered up with Huawei, LG, Motorola, HTC and Asus. While the partner for this year is still up for guesses, details of the upcoming Nexus 7 (2016) are already available.
In the Google I/O conference held in May, the company did not make any announcements on the new Nexus phone, but instead focused on the latest Android operating system, tentatively called Android N, as well as the Daydream, the Duo, Google Home and the Android Wear 2.0. According to The Christian Times, this likely means that when Google does decide to release the gadget, that it will come pre-installed with the latest operating system.
The publication also theorizes that Google first wants to see how the public will respond to the Android N, before deciding whether or not to include the same in the Nexus 7. In fact, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that the company is looking to be add more features on top of Android on the unit and that "There's a lot of software innovation to be had."
The item is speculated to have either a 5-inch or 5.5-inch screen, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 as the processor. T3 also speculates that the Nexus 7 is likely to come with 4GB of RAM. HTC and Huawei are the top contenders to partner up with Google for the next generation, with the former even claiming to the same earlier this year.
The same publication also shares that apps will be available in separate windows, that the unit will sport better graphics, an improved notification system and will be compatible with Google's new Daydream VR platform. Indeed, Google has big plans for the Nexus 7 and will be putting all its best into the unit.
The release date of the Nexus 7 has yet to be confirmed, but experts are saying the unit is likely to receive a September debut date.
