After the disappointing no-show of the rumored Nexus 7 during Alphabet Inc.’s (NASDAQ:GOOGL) recent hardware events, increasing speculation links the tablet device with an early-2017 release. Here’s a quick review of everything you should know about the highly-anticipated Google Nexus 7.

According to recent speculation, it is highly anticipated that Google has assigned Huawei with the task of manufacturing its next-generation tablet device. This is not surprising considering the excellent job Huawei did with Nexus 6P, which is easily one of the most impressively built smartphone devices ever seen in the smartphone market. Although Google has been more possessive regarding its recently released Pixel smartphones, the tech giant might give an external company its fair share of credit for the development of its next-gen tablet projects.

It was previously believed that Nexus 7 would be rolled out before the end of 2016 but that seems very unlikely, considering 2017 is just a few days away and the company has no events coming up until next year. Hence, there is a high possibility that the highly-anticipated Nexus 7 will mark its debut during Google’s 2017 event.

As far as the specifications go for the upcoming Nexus 7 are concerned, there are strong rumors that it will be powered by Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RM, and an internal storage worth 64GB. It is tipped to incorporate a substantial 13MP camera, which will represent a significant step-up compared to its predecessor model.

Interestingly, Google has already discontinued Nexus 9 from production, which is a clear indication that the company could be ready to move onto its next line of tablet devices. It’s no secret that rival companies, especially Apple and Microsoft, are set to roll out their next tablet devices, so Google cannot afford to risk falling behind in the tablet market.
