The Next Generation Google Nexus 7 failed to make an appearance at this year’s Google’s I/O, but recent reports say the tablet will be announced this coming July. Leaks have come out of the woodwork, with the latest ones confirmed by the FCC.
An FCC filing for a device known as Asus K009, which was said to carry the Nexus brand, revealed the device sporting a new 1.5GHz Quad-core Qualcomm APQ-8064 S4 Pro CPU, LTE data speeds, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a 5MP rear camera. The Nexus 7 made away with a rear mounted sensor in its original offering, dropping it in favor of lowering the overall price tag of the unit, but its heir apparently won’t go the same direction.
Matters regarding the Nexus 7’s new screen have not been confirmed, but it has been long rumored to have a FullHD 1080p screen.
Now the FCC filing didn’t mention the new Nexus 7 by name, it did however indicate that the device will carry the Nexus brand for marketing purposes. And with Android 4.3 just around the corner, the next gen tablet may come shipped with the latest iteration of Jellybean, now 4.3.
As with all rumors, take this with a healthy serving of salt.
