With Google I/O just approaching, tech enthusiasts globally are starting to get excited about what gadgets will be offered at the event. The long-rumored second generation Google Nexus 7 2.0 is being speculated to make its appearance at the event, and it will lead the charge with Android Key Lime Pie.
The second generation Nexus 7 will be a durable but heavy slab with a matte back cover finish that eliminates the need for a protection case. The slight changes in design will make this tablet thinner and lighter than before.
Another rumor we’ve heard about the next Nexus 7 is that Google may be making a processor change, dropping NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 that currently graces the Nexus 7 for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Asus is still expected to manufacture the device.
About Storage Capacity:
The storage capacity will remain restricted on the internal provisions determined by Google, which is a choice between 16GB and 32GB.
About Price and Release Date:
Revamped Nexus 7 is expected to retain its current price point of $199. Previous rumors have also claimed that the updated Nexus 7 will be released in July, so this is beginning to bode well for those who are hoping to see a refresh in the coming months.
It is also rumored to have a full HD display, Wi-Fi and cellular capabilities, as well as Android Key Lime Pie. Rumors are rife that Google has chosen the Nexus 7 as the first device to display the new Android prowess that will come via KLP. The tablet will likely beat Google’s two rumored smartphones this year – the Motorola X-Phone and the Nexus 5.
