Google Nexus 7 2nd generation specifications leaked via Asus support?
The long awaited Google Nexus 7… 2, or whatever you want to call it (we like Google Nexus 7: 2 Nexus Harder), may have had its specifications leaked by an overzealous representative from Asus, the company who built the first Nexus 7, who in a Google+ chat conversation with a user called Tim P, revealed some interesting specs.
In the chat the Asus rep tells the user that the incoming Asus K009 will be being released to the public “before the ending of July” along with some of the specifications for the device which sounds like a follow-up to the hugely popular Nexus 7.
The agent then took things further by giving away internal information on the incoming tablet which will reportedly be the basis for the Google branded next generation Nexus 7 device.
The tablet will feature a 7-inch screen again with a higher 1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution LED display, sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor and running the incoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS with 2GB of RAM. A 5-megapixel rear camera and front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera will be used on the tablet with a large 32GB of internal storage, though we don’t yet know if there will be a micro SD card to allow for expansion.
We were all expecting Google to announce a new Nexus tablet at May’s Google I/O event but nothing came, so there’s since been much confusion surrounding where the sought-after device is. Hopefully the leaked information is something close to reality and it’s not just an elaborate ruse by an Android fan.
We are still expecting some form of Google Android announcement later this year, whether it be the Jelly Bean 4.3 update or some new devices in July, so Android users still have plenty to look forward to in 2013.
