The search engine giant, Google, ventured a new segment in the technology arena. This is the first time they did this. The Nexus 7 is said to run on the hybrid, Andromeda.

This year, Google is expected to release two new smartphones. But with just only weeks before the year ends, Google Nexus 7 will less likely materialize this 2016.

Google tried to get the Chinese manufacturer, Huawei, to build Google Nexus 7. However, due to some disagreements on marketing schemes, the collaboration decayed thus proved to be a major setback for the mobile device. Rumors for its release on 2017 can be put to bed.

According to sources, the Taiwanese tech manufacturer HTC is said to be given a shot at the development of the Google Nexus 7. Will they deliver? Let's hope and see if it will be slated to launch by next year.

The Google Nexus 7's capabilities and features are already part of the rumor mill. It is very apparent that the device will retain its 7-inch screen but with minor upgrades. Google Nexus 7 is equipped with a quad high-definition screen and a corning gorilla glass for added display protection. The new tablet will most likely run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with the Adreno 530 GPU. Google Nexus 7 is also a juice box housing a 5100mAh.

The anticipated Google Nexus 7 will also stock a 13-megapixel rear camera and as for the front facing camera, it is yet to be updated. Though it is expected to be an 8-megapixel camera with a LED Flash there. And the cherry on top of the upcoming device is that it will be utilizing the hybrid operating system Andromeda. To support this OS, Nexus 7 would need a 4 GB RAM that brings the device's performance to new depths.

Google Nexus 7 is originally slated to arrive this year but there is still no specific date until now. So it is safe to say that this device will be on the shelves next year. For the latest scoop on Google Nexus 7 news and updates, check them only here on Gamenguide.
