Is Google Nexus 7 2016 Ever Coming Out? Leaks Of Specs And Features Still Out There

Google Nexus 7 2016 is one of the most anticipated gadgets this year. But amid rumors of specs and features, there is still no official confirmation from Google regarding the new Nexus 7 tablet. With news of setbacks in its development, is Google Nexus 7 tablet ever coming out?

Well, there is still time. Google Nexus 7 tablet has long been rumored to be released by the end of this year. Popular leaker Evan Blass shared on Twitter a few months' back that a new Google tablet, built by Huawei, is on-track for the release by end of 2016. "Google's Huawei-built 7-inch tablet, with 4GB RAM, on track for release before the end of the year," he wrote.

Unfortunately, before Google could even confirm that, news emerged that the upcoming Google Nexus 7 tablet has faced delays after Huawei backed out from producing it. As Jobs & Hire previously learned, Huawei and Google failed to agree on terms.

According to reports, Google wants to keep the branding of the new Nexus 7 tablet exclusive. Industry observers suggest the new tablet could be called Pixel Pro or Pixel 7, which is line with the recently released Pixel X and Pixel XL smartphones. On one hand, Huawei wants its brand to be incorporated as it strives to go beyond being just a contractor for the gadget.

Despite the lack of official and legit information other than Evan Blass' leaks, there are still rumors crawling in the grapevine regarding the anticipated Google Nexus 7 tablet. Its specs include a 7-inch Quad-HD (2560x1440) pressure-sensitive display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and Adreno 530 GPU. It has a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage with a microSD slot that can support up to 2TB of memory, via PC Advisor. Google Nexus 7 2016, which is expected to feature a 13MP rear camera, is also rumored to be the first device to run Andromeda OS.
