The Nexus 7 (2013) is still widely regarded as a great budget and good performing tablet. It even runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and users have reported much better battery life following the update. However, will ASUS and Google make the 3rd Nexus 7 any time soon?
According to a TrustedReviews interview with Jonney Shih, the Chairman of ASUS, when asked about the possibility of them working together again, he revealed that the company is already taking part in projects with Google.
Please just stay tuned, you know, stay tuned… I think we do have quite a good development partnership with Google. We are still doing a lot of projects with them together. (TrustedReviews.com)
This really excites me as another low priced ASUS Nexus tablet with a fingerprint sensor, USB Type C and Android 6.0+ would sell like hotcakes.
