If a tweet by Evan Blass, a popular “leaker” of Android devices, is any indication, we could be seeing a new 7-inch Google tablet from Huawei this year. The Nexus 7 tablet was definitely a favourite of Android users for a few years, but the last release we saw was the Nexus 7 (2013) three years ago. That tablet was a pretty solid device with its 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of memory, a 1920×1200 pixel display (323 pixels per inch; 127 ppcm), dual cameras (1.2 MP front, 5 MP rear), stereo speakers, and built-in inductive Qi wireless charging.
Google’s Huawei-built 7-inch tablet, with 4GB RAM, on track for release before the end of the year.

We’re expecting a Google announcement on October 4th during their anticipated event, where two new rumoured
Nexus Pixel smartphones will be unveiled. It’s quite possible we could see a Pixel tablet joining the Google lineup. Of course, rumoured details are light, but a 7-inch tablet with 4GB of RAM would definitely be of interest to a number of users. Considering Huawei developed the Nexus 6P for Google, a Huawei Google tablet isn’t a far stretch of the imagination.
