Google Nexus 7 Tablet Might Be Rebranded To The Pixel 7; October Launch Date Expected
The upcoming Pixel XL and Pixel smartphones were previously branded as Nexus devices. In a similar move, Google's Nexus 7 tablet might be rebranded to Pixel 7. The 7-inch tablet is expected to be launched on Oct. 4. This is alongside the highly-anticipated Pixel phones, the Daydream virtual reality (VR) platform and the Google Home.
Nexus To Pixel 7
According to Christian Today, Google has still not confirmed any launch. Noted tipster Evan Blass revealed that the company has actually partnered with Huawei. Apparently, they would work on a new tablet. Blass called it "Google's Huawei-built 7-inch tablet". This leads to speculations that it's no longer named as the 2016 Nexus 7.
Blass added that the device will have 4 GB of RAM. The amount of RAM may mean that it will be a flagship device. Hence, the lesser possibility that it's along the Nexus 7 lineup. The first Nexus 7 in 2012 was an above-average device. Specifically, it had decent specs and design, and was sold at a reasonable price.
The rebranding to Pixel 7 indicates that it will have an above-average processor. The Christian Today report stated that it might be powered by the Snapdragon 625 or Snapdragon 820 chipset. According to Vine Report, it is expected to run on Android Nougat. It will have 64 GB internal storage that can be upgraded up to 2 TB with a microSD card.
Its display is rumored to feature 2560x1440 resolution. Tech enthusiasts suggest that it will have improved cameras. The rear camera will be a 13-megapixel shooter. The front shooter is speculated to have a 5-megapixel sensor. The Pixel 7 is estimated to cost $258.
It might still be budget-friendly even though it's a flagship device. Huawei has always offered competitive prices. Regardless of the cost, Google will most likely change the Nexus 7 name to Pixel 7. It will not be surprising since that also happened with the Pixel phones.
Huawei is supposed to be the manufacturer of the new Google tablet. But they neither confirm nor deny that fact. They issued a statement to PC Advisor that it's a matter of policy. Huawei does not comment on future products. Though they did confirm their collaboration with Google for the Daydream VR.
