KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo may have possibly revealed detailed specifications about the upcoming refresh to the popular Nexus 7 Android tablet from Google and ASUS in a research note.
The next generation Nexus 7 is expected to see a launch in the Google I/O 2013 that starts on May 15th, and from the looks of it, the new Nexus 7 may just live up to expectations! Read on to find out more about it.
According to Kuo, the new Nexus 7 will have a 7-inch LTPS display with 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution – giving credence to all the rumors about it having a screen to match up to Apple’s much hyped Retina displays.
It will also have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, ditching the quad core Nvidia Tegra processor it’d used in the first gen Nexus 7 as we’d reported earlier.
It will have a 5 MP back shooter and an unspecified (‘HD’) front shooter. It will also come with an NFC chip like its predecessor, allowing quick file transfers through Android Beam, and payments through Google Wallet. The next gen Nexus 7 is predicted to have a 4000mAh battery, along with wireless charging support, interestingly enough.
Finally, the new Nexus 7 will not be shipping with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. It will have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean in it instead – presumably the last version of Jelly Bean before Key Lime Pie comes into the fold.
With the Google I/O just a couple of days away, the rumors about the next Nexus 7 are going to be put to rest for once and for all, but should the Nexus tablet have the specs that it is expected to have, it could make for a rather impressive tablet, much like the first Nexus 7!
