Well, it is official now, the Nexus brand is being sent off into a retirement exile. It is going to be replaced by the latest Pixel smartphones from Google. It is nothing short of trauma for ardent Nexus fans to see their favourite brand being discontinued.
As of yet, Pixel has not yet been given the status of Nexus’s legitimate successor.
It was shortly after that that we realized there is indeed a proper upgrade for the Nexus 6P. However, it is not called a Nexus, but a ZTE. It has been developed by a China-based manufacturer, into a brand-new phone by the name of Axon 7.
This new device deserves its title of the next Nexus 6p because it comes packed with features that are Google-exclusive. It even runs on the leading hardware. The icing on the cake being, that the gadget is pocket-friendly too, which is not the case with the highly-priced Pixel sets.
The Axon 7 consists of a 5.5” QHD screen, and it is powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC. It also has 6GB of RAM. The device is completely supported by Google Daydream VR and it is on the verge of receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
With so many features on offer, the Axon 7, slightly embalms the pain of not getting another Nexus device released. The Axon 7 is supposedly good enough to take over from the Nexus 6P. Google may not tag the handset as a Nexus, but that does not stop us from seeing it as a Nexus.
The Pixel and Pixel XL, which were formerly called the HTC Nexus Sailfish and Marlin, are smartphones by Google that the tech giant has finally released out of the door. However, it seems that the company is not finished, as also part of the year’s bonanza from the company, includes a tablet.
Christened as the new Google Nexus 7, the device may have a recycled name but it carries serious features that potential customers might find appealing. Debatably, the most prominent speculations of the times are that Google is dumping the Android operating system for Andromeda, which is the cross between Chrome and Android within one software.
It is eagerly expected and awaited by tech enthusiasts that Google to unveil its Google Nexus/Pixel 2016 tablet at its October launch event. This is also where it launched its new smartphones under the pixel brand, the Pixel, and Pixel XL.
Unfortunately, no such thing happened. Hence, next gen speculation about the Google Nexus/Pixel 2016 tablet release date, specs and price details are still unconfirmed officially.
If the word on the street is to be believed, then there still are chances that Google might run next-gen tablet before 2016 comes to an end. As Google, has wiped out the Nexus brand in smartphones and switched to the new brand called Pixel, speculations suggest that the upcoming tablet will also get rolled out under the Pixel brand.
In fact, popular leaker Evan Blass had previously tweeted that the forthcoming Google Nexus/Pixel 7 2016 tablet will boast 4 GB of RAM and will get an announcement date in 2016. The tweet also said Huawei will be making the next gen tablet.
In the specs department of the Google Nexus/Pixel 2016 tablet, the next-gen tablet is reported to come out with Google’s latest Andromeda operating system. The OS is a mixture of Android 7.0 Nougat and Chrome. Hopefully, Andromeda will bring in some spice to the new features on the tablet.
