9 months after the first Huawei Nexus 7 tablet rumor surfaced, there’s been a little update from computer leaker Evan Blass, who says that the next 7-inch Google Nexus tablet will indeed be built by Huawei, feature 4GB of RAM, and that it is scheduled to be released within 2016.
Huawei is currently the manufacturer of the most powerful 7-inch Android tablet on the market, with the Huawei Mediapad X2, a 7-inch FHD tablet that is 7 mm thick, has 3GB of RAM, and is powered by Huawei’s 2.0 GHz octa-core Kirin930 processor.
On top of generally high specs, it has a 5MP front camera, and a 13MP rear camera even.
We should expect thin bezels on the new 7-inch Google tablet, probably something similar to the Huawei Mediapad I’ve included a photo of below, along with of course Android 7.0. How high the specs will be really depends on what price category Google want their next tablet to be in. The predecessor was launched 3 years ago for $229. And considering that you can now get the 8-inch new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 today with an AMOLED display featuring 2048 x 1536 resolution and octa-core processor for under $299, the new 7-inch Nexus 7 ought to get pretty decent specs too.
Huawei is hot in the tablet market these days. Their thin new 12-inch Windows 10 tablet Huawei MateBook is now on sale with a free keyboard and not only that, but Microsoft will even include a free popular 8-inch FHD tablet to buyers during checkout.
