Nexus 7 2016 Rumors: LG To Develop Device?

Rumors about the Nexus 7 2016 suggested that the device will be developed by LG. The company is believed to have already signed an agreement with Google.

NSEAVOICE reported that a lot of fans were excited about Sony being the one to develop the Nexus 7 2016 device. However, a recent leak has revealed that LG has signed a new 3-year contract with Google.

The details of the agreement haven't been announced. However, there are claims that LG will be developing the next Nexus smartphones.

The publication noted that the South Korea-based company has already given so much to the Nexus development. The Nexus 5, for example, was one of the most successful devices for both LG and Google.

"Even so, fans would love to experience something new and different with the smartphones from Google," the website wrote. "Sony has yet to make a big contribution to the Nexus developments and fans want it to happen."

According to Yibada, there are rumors that the Nexus 7 2016 device will be created by HTC. Plus, the discounts on current devices have hinted at the possibility of a new phone.

Although there are no official announcements yet regarding the Nexus 7 2016 release date and specs, it is believed that the device may be unveiled in May. It may also be a tablet.

It was previously reported that LG may be developing two Nexus devices for Google. The Nexus 7 specs are also believed to have already been tested and running on Android N.

The HTC device is also said to support Google's 3D Touch feature. Xiaomi and OPPO, among others, will be using the feature sometime this year as well.

Although Huawei's Nexus 6P has become one of the favorite Android handsets in the market, it is believed that all Nexus devices this year will be from HTC. This came as a surprise since the Taiwan-based company has been having difficulties in the smartphone market.
