One week ahead of Google’s Android event in New York, someone has leaked out what Google has up its sleeve, and they look pretty good, to be honest.
First up, it appears Google will most likely be officially announcing the 32GB variant of the Nexus 7 tablet, which is pretty much confirmed by many. In addition, the 3G variant of the Nexus 7 should also be making its appearance here – completing the Nexus 7 lineup.
Also, the all-but-confirmed Nexus 4 smartphone should also be making its bow at the event. The heavily-leaked device, which even had a review way before it was even made official, will be made by LG to replace the aging Galaxy Nexus, manufactured by Samsung.
Speaking of which, Samsung does retain some Google love, where they are rumoured to be making a high-end tablet. Going by the codename “Manta”, the tablet will sport a super sharp 2560 x 1600 resolution, with a Retina-beating 299 ppi. In addition, it will also ship with Android 4.2, the latest iteration of the Android OS.
Interestingly, the same source also had some leaks for the upcoming update, codenamed Key Lime Pie. So far, the main points are the ability to capture panoramas not just in horizontal movement, but vertical as well. Also, Google will introduce multiple account support for a single device in this update.
Whether the above will prove to be accurate, only time will tell. However, that is pretty comprehensive just to be passed as a rumour.
