Google Nexus 2016 Phones Renamed, Will The Rumored Nexus Tablet Follow Suit?

As for its expected release date, Blass noted that Google might launch the tablet before 2016 ends, which gives off the impression that it will be available alongside the two smartphones: HTC Sailfish and Marlin.

Huawei is partnering up with Google to launch a new 7-inch tablet.

Two new phones under the Google Nexus 2016 flagship will reportedly ship in October this year and the alleged prices are already leaked by a blog dedicated to any news on the brand. Plus, we would expect that Google have a tight grip on the release of information about this project, and they're probably keeping things at a low profile if the device is real.

As you may know, I've long championed the use of Nexus handsets for those who choose the Android ecosystem, and I am specifically a fan of the most recent Nexus devices, the Nexus 5X and especially the Nexus 6P. Built by Asus, the Nexus 7, is still considered by many as Google's best Android tablet ever.

Notable leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) fueled these speculations centering on the rumored tablet as he posted a few details about the said device on Twitter on Tuesday, September 6.

The next "big" smartphone to make an appearance for our expected fall line-up is Google's Nexus - or perhaps Google's Pixel, as rumors would have us believe - which is predicted to make its official appearance sometime in early October. There's also the iPhone 7, which featured a number of important upgrades, but is also under heavy scrutiny due to the removal of the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. This change will take effect with the Nexus 5. That includes a Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB of storage and a 13-megapixel camera.

Speaking of partners, Blass' tweet also supports reports that claim Huawei will be developing this year's Nexus 7 following its partnership with Google on the Nexus 6P. According to reports, Huawei PR shares, "We don't comment on future products, as a matter of policy".

However, it was reported later on that it is Huawei that was tapped by Google to create the next-generation Nexus 7 tablet.

Rumors and speculation spreading online about the Google Nexus 7 started since past year.
