Nexus talk is in full swing right now. Although, after the recent reports that have come through, it would seem to be more accurate to refer to the talk as 'Pixel talk'. This is due to the current understanding that this year’s Nexus smartphones will actually be branded as Pixel smartphones with the smaller variant expected to be the Pixel and the larger model expected to be the Pixel XL. However, that is not the only change expected this year as another report which came through this week looked to confirm that as well as the two Pixel smartphones, Google is also set to announce and release a new tablet. One which is said to be made in conjunction with Huawei.
Following the first reports on this, new information is now coming through from a report out of Huawei Blog. The information is said to come from “contacts in China” and reveals a number of the specs that are said to be on offer with what the report details will be the Huawei Nexus 7P. Which is interesting in itself as there is not any mention of this being a 'Pixel' product. Either way and as the name suggests, the Nexus 7P tablet is expected to come loaded with a 7-inch display. The current report looks to also confirm that the display will be a QHD display with a resolution of 2560 × 1440. Inside, the report goes on to detail that the Nexus 7P will come loaded with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. It is also said that a 13-megapixel camera will be included, which presumably will be a rear-facing camera although the placement was not specified in the report.
It is briefly worth pointing out that even the report does note that the specs are subject to change and especially as the information is said to be based on a pre-production version of the tablet. So while the report looks to confirm these as the specs, they might be. Not to mention, they could be wrong altogether as this is still an unconfirmed report. Although, if correct, then it does seem that the Nexus 7P will be somewhat in line (in terms of specs) with the upcoming Pixel smartphones. Unfortunately, as is the case with such reports and leaks, no details were provided on the likely cost of what seems to be a fairly high-end tablet from Google and Huawei.
