Rumors have been popping up in regard to HTC manufactured Nexus phones for 2016, and along with it there is a new contender now ! The Nexus 7 2016 edition. Though it’s much too soon to even confirm such a device exists, rumors have made it plausible. Believed to be launched at Google I/O Conference the Tablet is now being expected to come alongside the two new nexus smartphones.
What’s great to hear is that Google plans to deliver a full blown version instead of a budget friendly one, the specifications are expected to go with a Snapdragon 820 and at least 3GB of RAM, which should indicate a powerful display as well (likely a quad HD one). According to Breathecast, since Google is planning to showcase the full version of its new Android N platform with new Nexus products, the refreshed Nexus 7 and the rumored follow-ups to the Nexus 5X and 6P will have to be released later in the year. The release time frames are still expected to happen sometime in Fall 2016, September likely. This will give Google a direct competition with the Apple iPhone 7, which is both good and bad. . Reportedly, in an interview, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that there is an idea to “thoughtfully add more features on top of Android or Nexus phones,” since there is plenty of “software innovation to be had.” which suggests that the Nexus 7 2016 might have some neat tricks up it’s sleeve.
