Tomorrow is going to be the D-Day for Google fans and watchers. For the much awaited I/O Conference gets off tomorrow the 15th May that will also provide us with enough insight to have a good idea of what the search giant will be up to in the coming days. For one, we could well see the coming of the new Android version codenamed Key Pie Lime as well as the second gen Nexus 7 device, both of which are being rumored for quite some time now.
Also, if there is all round enthusiasm surrounding the Google I/O event, there also are very good reason for them. For it was just the last year’s conference which had announced to the world with the two things whose next iteration many believe will be launched during this year’s event. These include the Android Jelly Bean as well as the Nexus 7 device. The tablet had quickly risen to among the top tablet devices in its category, aided by its affordable price tag while sporting excellent specs. No wonder, the tablet is still in demand and has proved to be a worthy competitor to the likes of the iPad Mini.
However, notwithstanding all the excitement or speculations surrounding the Google I/O Conference or the next Nexus 7 iteration, what is truly strange is that we are yet to come across any leaked images of the tablet. As such, we have no idea whatsoever about how the device looks like are what its design features will be. Each iteration of the Nexus smartphone sports a fresh design cue which makes us salivating at a fresh new design for the Nexus 7 2 as well.
Apart from a new design, the other aspect to watch out for in the Nexus 7 2 is a revamped display that will have full 1080p resolution. This will be a great improvement over the 720p display that the current Nexus 7 has to offer. Some analysts also believe a rear camera might be included this time, something that was shunned in the Nexus 7 to keep costs low. A faster processor is also in the cards, with it being the Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor being the likely candidate.
Other features to expect out of the Nexus 7 2 include NFC, wireless charging along with a more efficient battery. Then of course there is no better a device right now than the Nexus 7 2 to be the perfect launching platform for the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. All these along with a price tag that is believed to be the same as that of the original could well script a new success story for the Nexus 7 2.
