Google has been one of the most prominent companies rumored to do a product launch this year. A few months ago, rumors started about Google releasing new Nexus phones named Nexus Marlin and Nexus Sailfish.
However, just a few weeks ago, the names of the devices were changed and it was said that Google is set to ditch the old Nexus name and label the new devices as the Pixel and Pixel XL. Now, new rumors have surfaced regarding yet another device from Google, a successor of the Nexus 7 tablet.
Google Nexus 7 2016
Although the name of the upcoming tablet device from Google has not yet been confirmed, the speculations only revolve around a Nexus 7 successor. As per recent rumors, the new Google tablet will be Huawei-made and will come with 4 GB RAM and a 7-inch screen.
If you're wondering where these specific descriptions came from, the only source of the rumors is Evan Blass. Blass is a well-known and reliable leakster who tweets new leaks under the Twitter name @evleaks.
According to his tweet from September 6, Blass mentioned that Google will release a Huawei-built tablet before the end of 2016. He specified the tablet to feature a 7-inch screen and carry 4 GB of RAM.

According to leaks from outside the US, the new Huawei-built tablet would feature Quad HD resolution and a Snapdragon 820 processor. The expected internal storage is 64 GB and the camera is set to be 13 MP for the rear shooter.
As for the name, there were reports stating that Huawei has secured a trademark for "Huawei 7P". However, after all the name changing and name ditching that happened in the recent weeks, it is very difficult to predict what the name of the next Google tablet will be.
Google Tablet 2016 Release Date
While the leak only says that the new tablet will arrive before the end of the year, it is not impossible for Google to at least mention the device on its rumored event day. According to various sources, the company is expected to hold an event on October 4th to release new devices including a new Chromecast and possibly the anticipated smartphones.
