Google Nexus, which was first made available in 2010, is a line of electronic devices that run on the Android operating system. Google partners up with a number of tech manufactures to provide this good, including Huawei, LG, Motorola, HTC and Asus.
T3 notes that, previously, the Nexus lines have been made available near the end of the year, so there is definitely time for Google to release the Nexus 7. Last year, however, the gadgets came in earlier than expected as the Huawei Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X were released in September.
It could be that Google is waiting for Apple to announce the release of the new iPhone 7 in order to stir up the competition. Also, because Android devices are normally released at the same time, and the Android N has been confirmed to make the market this fall, a September release for the Nexus 7 seems likely as well.
Those in the running to partner up with Google are HTC, who made the very first Nexus device, and Huawei, because of a remark previously made by one of their executives. HTC reportedly has two Nexus phones in development, while HTC is ready to follow up the release of the 2015 Nexus 6P.
As for the specs of the Nexus 7, it can be expected that Google will stick with their two-phone strategy, which was introduced last year - one which will be mid-range and a premium unit. They are expected to be 5 inches and 5.5 inches respectively, fitted with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM.
All of these details are informed theories, as Google has not given much about the upcoming Nexus 7. In fact, tech enthusiasts were disappointed when Google did not provide an update on the same during the I/O Conference. Instead, according to Christian Times, Google touched on several of its software projects such as Android Instant Apps, Project Tango, Project Soli, Google Assistant and Google Home.
