The highly anticipated Google Nexus 7 2 might debut the market very soon according to the latest rumours suggesting that the new Nexus 7 tablet could launch within weeks, sometime at the end of August or beginning of September.
Co-developed by Asus and Google, the second installment in the series is thought to debut by the official name of the new Google Nexus 7 within the next month, according to the Taiwanese supply sources. The latest rumours confirm the new Nexus 7 release dates and specs teased by an Asus rep at the start of the month, which also hinted the official appearance of the next generation of the Nexus series to be around some time this month.
What new to expect? The new Google Nexus 7 tablet will be eyeing to capitalize on the huge success accomplished by the Tegra powered Google Nexus 7 last year. The second-generation Google Nexus 7 tablet will bring a 7-inch 1980 x 1200p display, boosting the 1280 x 800p resolution of the current slate.
The tablet will replace the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU, which will be quite a drastic change, but retain the same 1.2-megapixel front facing camera.
Another major expected update with the tablet could be the introduction of a 5MP rear camera. Along with the front facing camera, which was also present with its predecessor, the new Google Nexus 7's rear camera would be an added incentive seeing as the Google Nexus 7 did not have one.
Price Tag? Alongside with the latest rumours on the new Google Nexus 7 release dates and specs, a few sources are suggesting that the latest flagship from Google will range from a price of about $199-$229, which is quite modest and enticing as the Nexus 7 also managed to capture a notable share at the market with the high specs coupled with a brilliant price range.
The tablet could face competition from other similarly priced tablets from Lenovo, Acer and HP. The sources estimate that 8 million new Nexus 7 devices will be sold across the world this year after it launches.
The Google Nexus 7 was able to sell a whopping 6 million units because of the attractive price offer, but the new Nexus 7 will still have to struggle to reach such a mark, despite of the low price offered as it faces considerable market competition with other notable companies.
The new Nexus 7 was seen boasting the Android version 4.3 in a rumoured careening online via an FCC filing last month, but it could easily be debuting the highly anticipated Android 5.0 Key lime Pie, coupled with the Nexus 5 smartphone.
