Rumours surrounding the Nexus 7 2

nexus-7-3498We have bit of intel from an "analyst" in the mobile industry. As usual, feel free to be sceptical of this news. Supposedly, this analyst was privy to the new specs of the next-generation Google Nexus 7 Android tablet. Here’s what was "revealed,"

  • 7-inch LTPS display with 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution
  • quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064)
  • 5-megapixel camera
  • HD front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • NFC
  • 4000mAh battery with Qi wireless charging support
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

These specs are pretty enticing, especially considering the tablet is supposedly going to stay at its original price-point. As you can see, this new version will come sans NVIDIA hardware in the next go-around assuming this rumour turns out to be true. It will also come with an upgraded screen and the Android 4.3 version we have seen rumoured for the past week or so. Finally, it’s also interesting to see the added rear camera and wireless Qi charging support. Overall this new Nexus 7 is turning out to be a hardcore competitor.
As an interesting side note, this story came with some additional intel. Supposedly, Google will sell this device at a loss again when it hits the Google Play Store. Unfortunately we have no idea when that will be, although Google I/O next week should clear that up.
