Google's line of Nexus phones has had tech enthusiasts at the edge of their seats. While the company handles the design, marketing, support and development of the handsets, it looks to other mobile manufacturers to create the tangible material. The Nexus 7 will be running on the new Android N.
The Nexus 7 did not receive any air time during the Google I/O in May, despite a developer preview launched last March. A second preview was released in April and a third followed in May. The fourth preview was launched just recently, reported Breathe Cast. With all of this on the table, it is likely that the Nexus 7 will arrive with the Android N this August.
Hiroshi Lockheimer took to Twitter to tease the Android N further. According to Science World Report, the senior VP in charge of Android showed a screenshot of him entering "Nutella" on Google's search page. He captioned the post, "Just testing some stuff out..." which is leading many to believe that Android "N" will soon be called by its real name, Android Nutella.
It has also been confirmed that Huawei will be manufacturing the Nexus 7. This is the company's second consecutive time to be trusted with the responsibility, but that is all the company is sharing right now. "We're doing the Nexus again this year, by the way," Huawei South Africa Consumer Business Group General Manager, Charlene Munilall, shared.
The Nexus 7 will reportedly be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820/Nvidia Tegra X1 processor with 4GB of RAM with an expendable memory of up to 2TB. The touch screen will be around 7 inches.
HTC is reportedly going to release two other Android N devices, codenamed S1 and M1. These handsets, along with the Nexus 7, will feature Android N ad will come with new 3D Touch display technology as well as a new Google Photo backup feature with improved camera specs.
