While the anticipation for Google’s upcoming smartphones continues to grow, prolific leakster Evan Blass caught everyone by surprise by suggesting that we may also have a new Google tablet to look forward to.
The leak didn’t offer a whole lot of information, except for the fact that the device would be made by Huawei, and come with 4 GB of RAM. Now, Huaweiblog.de has received more details about what we can expect from the next Google tablet.
According to their sources in China, Huaweiblog.de reports that the device will feature a 7-inch display with a Quad HD resolution, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, and a 13 MP rear camera.
The device doesn’t have a name yet, but Huawei has recently secured a trademark for the “Huawei 7P.” However, with Google seemingly about to drop the Nexus moniker for good, we can only speculate as to what this tablet will be called.
It’ll also be exciting to see what the price of the device will be. The Nexus 7 line was extremely popular because of how aggressively priced the tablets were, but with the top of the line specifications that the forthcoming tablet will supposedly feature, we may be seeing a price point more akin to the Pixel C.
Google is expected to launch a slew of devices on October 4, including the new smartphones, a 4K-capable Chromecast, and a Daydream compatible VR headset, and while the current info on the release date of the tablet is vaguely said to be at “the end of the year,” Google and Huawei might have a surprise in store for us after all.
