There has been no shortage of rumors surrounding the next product releases of Google. What was first the Nexus 2018 Phone - rumored to be manufactured by HTC - became the Pixel phones. Now, however, various reports are claiming that there will be a Nexus tablet to be released, alongside a Pixel notebook from Google.
An Andromeda Android/Chrome OS Hybrid
What makes these units so special is that Google is expected to do something incredibly innovative with the two units. That is, that both the Nexus Tablet and the Pixel Notebook will be hybrid devices in that they run on Andromeda Android and Chrome OS.
The Nexus Tablet
As 9to5Google reports, the Nexus tablet will be manufactured by Huawei and will be launched with Andromeda. The publication goes on to claim that the tablet is what famed leaker Evan Blass spoke about a few weeks ago.
"Google's Huawei-built 7-inch tablet, with 4 GB RAM, on track for release before the end of the year," his tweet read.
In truth, the tablet that Bass reported on has not been confirmed to be under the Nexus branding. However, various individuals close to the project have reportedly referred to is as the "Nexus tablet."
The Pixel 3
On the other hand, Android Police reported on the release of the Pixel 3, which is expected to release by the third quarter of 2017. It is expected to come in a thin body with a 12.3-inch display. It will be powered by either an Intel m3 processor or an Intel i5 Core Processor. The storage options at this point are 32 GB and 128 GB, running on 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM.
Reportedly, it will sport two USB Type-C ports, a standard 3.5mm audio jack, stylus support, stereo speakers and a battery that will last ten hours. It will also have a backlit keyboard and a glass trackpad, which will use haptic and force detection.
Furthermore, the Pixel 3 is estimated to be a hybrid tablet/notebook device. Whether this means a detachable screen or a completely foldable device is still unsure.
