Google Nexus 7 2016 release rumors: Force touch technology, improved specs to be included?


The launch of the new Google Nexus 7 2016 will reportedly happen in May during the I/O Developers Conference where Google has always done so in the previous years. Many tech fans have been patiently waiting for the release of the new gadget. With the optimistic rumors circulating online, these fans won’t be disappointed to use the device with much improved specifications and allegedly, an inclusion of the force touch technology.

Google annually releases their new software and device offerings during its I/O Developers Conference, leading many followers to believe that next month would see the unveiling of Nexus 7 2016 according to Yibada. It was reported that the device might adapt the force touch system that was developed first by Apple, Inc., a change in screen display from 5.1-inch to 7-inch, and an upgrade in RAM to 4GB.

The force touch technology works by enabling a smartphone device to sense the level of force applied to the touchpad. Different command options would show under varying level of force when applied to a particular area in the touch screen. This pressure-sensitive system can be found in the new iPhone 6.

The Nexus 7 2016 is said to have both 820 SoC and NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 as processor and is expected to support  2TB external memory through a microSD slot. Its battery life is rumored to be a 3,000mAh one, while the camera might be upgraded to 12MP for the main camera and 5MP for the front one. The upcoming Nexus 7’s design may be similar to the HTC 10 flagship, supplementing other rumors that Google will work with Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, which it had also previously worked before.
