Google is all set to unveil their plans for hardware on October 4th as the company is transitioning from Nexus to Pixel Series. As the company has released a video hyping up about their new Pixel phone unveiling. But there might be some other devices coming on the day itself as it is all rumored to be previewed at the event.
The new reports coming in states that Google’s first Andromeda device might be unveiled alongside Pixel phone. This 7-inch tablet has been in the rumour mill for a long time and is said to be built by Huawei, the Chinese multi equipment manufacturer. Though, do make a note that there are some things that make this rumor quite confusing.
Such as it is being called as a Nexus tablet, while with Google moving away from Nexus branding the industry is under the impression that there won’t be any Nexus device from this year. But it has been pointed out by popular leakster Evan Blass that we may see a tablet launched by the company by the end of this year.
It would be quite soon when talking about full Andromeda release as far as the facts go about the OS release. On the contrary, it would be possible that all the parties might be right about this tablet, at least in some fashion. Note that Andromeda could be available as a developer preview and as a developer focused device while retaining the Nexus branding.
Only the consumer-focused devices would become Pixels. From what is know about the Andromeda platform, It doesn’t seem to be an ideal functionality of running it on a 7-inch device. Or perhaps it could offer a way for developers to test Andromeda on large screens. It is all speculation, so we recommend you to take this information with a grain of salt.
