#Google #Nexus7 – Google Nexus 7 (2016) – A New Gadget Coming Soon : Google was supposedly going to release a new Nexus 7 (2016) tablet but they didn’t and since the year is coming to an end, the tablet will probably be launched during 2017. There are many speculations on why the tablet’s production was stopped and all of them point towards Google’s choice of manufacturers. Google is known to partner up with different tech companies in order to produce their devices, the Pixel line of smartphones being the only one completely produced by Google.
At the moment all tech rumors point out the fact that Google is already in talks with HTC, and that HTC is going to be the official Nexus 7 producer from now on. If this proves to be true, we are in for a treat since both HTC and Google have great tech departments, and combining them could only result in a great gadget.
The first Nexus 7 tablet had great success and it sold rather well but at the moment Google has shifted its attention towards their new Pixel devices. Google even confirmed that they are trying to kill of their Nexus brand so that their Pixel devices can flourish. This means that the new Google tablet might be re-branded as a Pixel device, but we cannot be too sure of this because Google might change their minds and keep the Nexus 7 brand alive since customers are already familiar with it and it won’t require a new marketing campaign.
Google was supposedly going to work together with Huawei in order to release the new tablet but Huawei didn’t agree to some of the terms Google was imposing. Google wanted only their brand name to be engraved on the device and since Huawei is trying to make a name for themselves in the tech world, they didn’t agree with that.
Now that Google is going to partner up with HTC we can expect the tablet to drop around 2017. We can only hope that everything goes well in production and the tablet will be released in the first quarter of 2017.
