There are new reports stating that the Google Nexus 7 will start utilizing Google’s new mobile operating system (OS), Android 7.0 N, which is rumored to be called the Android 7.0 Nutella.
The rumors regarding the Android 7.0 Nutella moniker started when Android senior vice president Hiroshi Lockheimer uploaded a photo on Twitter. It was shown in the photo that Lockheimer had been using Google’s search engine to look up the word Nutella. This has led the tech community to speculate that the Android 7.0 N OS will be called Nutella.
Reports have also suggested that the upcoming Google Nexus 7 2016 will run this new OS. So far, the Android N OS has gained a good reputation with developers and many believe that it will work well with the upcoming Google Nexus 7.
In addition, the upcoming device is rumored to be equipped with the NVIDIA Tegra X1 or the Snapdragon 820 as the processor that will give power to the gadget. In line with that, it would also include 4 GB of random access memory (RAM). The memory that the device can store will also be a huge feature, since it will supposedly have a maximum capacity of 2 TB for external storage with the use of memory card slots.
With a 12-megapixel back camera, it will make the device a good contender against the other smartphones. Moreover, the camera that is usually used for selfies will have 5 megapixels.
In other news, the predecessor of the upcoming gadget, Nexus 6, has had a price drop and is now only priced at $180. This is a sign that the Google Nexus 7 may be launched soon. There is no exact date yet, but it may be on September or October of this year. Meanwhile, the Android 7.0 N OS is touted to launch sometime in August.
