Google Nexus 2016 has been making news for a long time, as fans have been waiting for the launch of the latest iteration. Reports suggested that the device is slated for Google’s Annual I/O Developer Conference scheduled in May this year.
While, according to the latest news, Google will manufacture a smartphone and tablet combo in 2017. Rumour claims that LG and Huawei will be producing the device along with Google.
Speculations suggest that Google Nexus 7 (2016) could be released next year and the third generation of the device will be manufactured by Huawei. An unnamed tipster on Weibo posted that Google is currently working on the new tablet and Huawei will be manufacturing it as Google-Huawei partnership for making Nexus 6P had worked well.
On the other hand, LG is said to be in-charge of the company’s high-end smartphone. Earlier, LG had produced two high-end Nexus smartphone – Nexus 4 and Nexus 5- with Google. However, this year, the company came up with the mediocre Nexus 5X.
Although, Nexus 2016 specs and features are still not known, but speculations note that Android N will be infused in the device even though dessert name of the OS is still not revealed. Nougat and Nutella are some of the rumoured names.
In a Reddit AMA, Glen Murphy, Director of Android and Chrome UX, confirmed that Google’s figuring out ways to make Android a more work-friendly platform. So this would enable to perform multitask for users efficiently.
“There are many things, like multi-window, that we’ve been spending a lot of time on — hopefully, we can share more about this soon. We’re working on lots of things right now for N that, of course, we wish we had, you know, yesterday… But we’d spoil the surprise of N if we shared all of them. Split screen is in the works!” said Andrew Bowers (via Tech Times).
