Google’s October 4 event is highly predictable for several reasons, with the biggest being the Pixel as well as Pixel XL smartphones. Previously this week, reports came flooding in that Google may reveal its Android-Chrome OS merger a new OS identified as Andromeda. Now, a fresh report proposes that Google may release Andromeda OS on the much whispered Huawei’s 7-inch Pixel tablet, which was formerly pegged for an October launch. In the meantime, another report proposes that Google may launch an Andromeda OS-powered ‘Bison’ laptop in Q3 2017.
As per report, Google is prepping to launch new hardware and Huawei-built ‘Nexus’ tab might be one of them. When the tab was first leaked this year, Blass had tipped the tab would be Pixel-branded, which is very much in line with additional rumors about Google’s upcoming launches. Though multiple people aware with the matter say that the tab will continue to be Nexus branded.
The publication goes on that Google is solitary testing Andromeda on HTC, but does not plan to issue any such version of the tab. Coming back to the whispered Huawei tablet, the report adds that it may inaugurate with Android out-of-the-box, but support an inventor preview of Google Andromeda.
Evan Blass had previously hinted in a tweet that the Huawei-built ‘Nexus’ appliance may hit the truth by the end of 2016, but now that a group of rumors indicates that Google Andromeda might be on its way, it doesn’t seem to like to be the case. Evan Blass also harassed in his tweet that the new tab device may support 4GB of RAM, in an account to housing a 7-inch display. In this way, it could be alike to an earlier leaked Huawei appliance that bore the name Huawei 7P.
In the same time, Android Police has raised details about a Pixel 3 ‘Bison’ laptop that will appear with the Google Andromeda on board. The laptop is assumed to have two variants, both containing a 12.3-inch display. The report entitles the laptop will be less than 10mm in width.
As per specs, the Pixel 3 will allegedly pack an Intel Core m3/ Core i5 CPU coupled with either 32GB or 128GB of inbuilt storage, or either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Considerably, the laptop may also have a fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm jack, stylus support, two USB Type-C ports, and stereo speakers. It will ape the haptic feedback also and pressure sensitivity analogous to what was introduced with the Apple’s 12-inch Mac-book. It is also assumed to sport a backlit keyboard, 4 microphones as well as 10-hour long lasting battery.
The Google Pixel 3 is fastened to cost $800 (approximately Rs. 53,000), as per the report. As it is mentioned, a Q3 2017 launch is estimated, and Google will perhaps not detail the laptop at its October 4 event. Readers must note that the Andromeda is a code-name, and when it launches Google will possibly have another name to go with it.
