The Google Nexus 7 II could go 4G. Leaked specs suggest a 7-inch sequel to the flagship Android tablet will have a high-definition screen and the choice of extra-fast 4G Internet connection — and could be unveiled this very month.
The next generation of the bargain-tastic tablet, built by Asus with cutting-edge Google software inside, is set to deliver better than Full HD 1,980×1,200-pixel resolution. If the leak is to be believed, it’ll be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM.
The Nexus 7 II is claimed to have 32GB of internal storage for your music and movies and photos, with a 5-megapixel camera and hefty 4,000mAh battery.
As a Nexus device it will run the very latest version of Google’s Android software. That’s reported here to be Android 4.3; whether that’s the long-rumoured Key Lime Pie update remains to be seen.
These details aren’t official, but are alleged to have come from the horse’s mouth: an online chat with a loose-lipped Asus customer service representative who apparently spilled the beans at the slightest prompting.
The Chatty Cathy from Asus also promised the Nexus 7 II would be unveiled at the end of July.
