Next generation Nexus 7 to have some beefy specs


Google could be bringing all the best to their budget Nexus 7 at Google I/O, if a new report by KGI securities analyst Mingchi Kuo is correct.

Mountain View could be bringing the Nexus 7 with a higher resolution, bouncing from 1280 x 800 to 1920 x 1200. This would be a huge boost and really propel the budget seven inch tablet above competitors.

The Nexus 7 will also be coming with a Qualcomm chip, possibly the Snapdragon 600, instead of the Tegra 3 found in the first edition. This newer processor will boost speeds and we expect a newer GPU to be fitted in.

Battery life on the next generation Nexus 7 will be big, with a 4000mAh battery and Qi wireless charging, as seen on the Nexus 4. The Nexus 7 will also come with up to 32GB of internal storage.

Even though we are still not buying cameras on tablets, the Nexus 7 will come with a HD front facing camera and a five megapixel rear camera, alongside Android 4.3 camera software.

The Nexus 7 will go down in size too, with a smaller bezel, lighter body and thinner design, it will be an all round upgrade from the previous version.

One of the best features about the new Nexus 7 will be the price, apparently even with all the new specs it will retain the $199 (£159) price tag, Google will lose $10 per sale, but hopefully get it back with software and media sold.

This will be one of the big new products coming at Google I/O this year and Google is banking on the next Nexus 7 having the same success as the first edition.

The company should be expecting around five million in sales on the first quarter, followed by another 15 million before the tablet gets renewed at the next Google I/O in 2014.
