The Google Nexus 2016 has been a favorite subject of rumors and speculations all over the Internet for a few months now. According to the recent report, Google's flagship smartphone is said to come out in August this year with a pre-installed Android N operating system.

Several reports suggest that the new software from the American Internet search engine will come out in August. It was recently reported that Google is planning to debut the highly anticipated Android Nutella software on the upcoming Google Nexus 2016.

There have been speculations saying that Google has tapped HTC or Huawei to help them manufacture the next generation of their flagship smartphone. It was reportedly confirmed that the Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company, Huawei, will help Google produce the best smartphone in 2016. The Chinese tech company was also responsible for bringing in the Google Nexus 6P last year.

Meanwhile, there are also reports that the next Google device will be a tablet called Google Nexus 7 2016. The Nexus tablet line from Google has not been updated since the last one came out in 2013 and fans have already started to wonder if Google will ever release another model to continue the series.

The current Nexus 5X is recently being sold with a discount, which is always a good indication that something better is about to arrive anytime soon. It was earlier reported that the upcoming Google Nexus 2016 will be an improved version of Nexus 5X.

Despite Google's continued silence, rumors about the specs of Google Nexus 2016 have already hit online. According to reports, the device will carry impressive specs headed by the Snapdragon 820 chipset from Qualcomm, which will be paired with 4 GB of RAM. Tech observers could not decide if the device will come with a 5-inch or 5.5-inch display. It will also have a 12-megapixel primary shooter, along with its 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
