Amidst all the fuzz about leaked specifications of the Google Nexus 7 Tablet is making on the internet, it is said to have been benched. Some believed that the Nexus 7 line is dead. There has been a lot of speculated reasons, here are some of them.

 First reason for the rumored cancellation of the Google Nexus 7 Tablet is its size. For the technology trend nowadays, consumers tend to desire gadgets that are alluring to the eyes - the bigger the better. In today's generation, large screened tablets are more of a demand rather than the smaller ones. So, if Google will continue this tablet line, they will only lose money.

 The second reason is that the Chinese manufacturer Huawei backed out due to a disagreement on how to market the Google Nexus 7 Tablet as reported earlier in Gamenguide. It was reported that Google tapped the said Chinese company to manufacture their future phones. But when Google asserted that Huawei's logo is not be included in the Google Nexus 7 Tablet, they declined the contract.

The Consumer Business VP of Huawei, Colin Giles, said that the company would like to be recognized for all its work, especially in the Google Nexus 7 Tablet. The Chinese phone manufacturer is no longer satisfied staying in the background as an anonymous service provider. Giles also stated that Huawei was willing to work on the project tasked by Google until the search engine company decided not to include Huawei's logo in the upcoming Google Nexus 7 Tablet. It is said that for this reason, that Huawei declined the contract for the Pixel smartphone as well.

Nonetheless, there are still whispers of an upcoming Google device. If the Google Nexus 7 Tablet is really not happening, then Google might release the upcoming mobile device in its new branding, Pixel. Chatters point out that it could be a Pixel Pro or Pixel 7.
