Despite Google never confirming the existence of the Google Nexus 7, rumors, news, and supposed updates about the device just keep on coming. There were a lot of users who were hoping that Google will be releasing a new device before the end of 2016, but the year came and went without a murmur of the Google Nexus 7.

Even if news about the device from Google is scarce, NeuroGadget has reported that the Google Nexus 7 will be equipped with top-of-the-line hardware like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset matched with the Adreno 530 GPU, it is said to have a resolution of 2560 x 1440, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB internal storage.

Other features of the rumored Google Nexus 7 are the 13 MP rear camera and the 8 MP front facing camera. It is also said to have an expandable memory of up to 2 TB.

The Android Soul has recently released some supposed leaked specs of an unidentified Android tablet, but it seems doubtful that these specs are for the Google Nexus 7 since it only has the Snapdragon 652, 3 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage. This piece of information doesn't even mention that the screen size is shown to be 18.4 inches.

One of the biggest features of the Google Nexus 7 is its OS. There have been a lot of rumors claiming that Google will not be releasing the phablet with an Android OS, and instead, it will run on the Andromeda OS. The operating system is said to be a hybrid of Android and Chromebook OS, making it possible that users can really use their phones like a PC.

Finally, after Google has launched the Pixel line, there have been more than a few speculations claiming that Google will be dropping the Nexus line and that they will be rebranding the Google Nexus 7 into the Google Pixel 7.
