Google mobile lovers out there are waiting for the release of the latest Nexus 7, which has a reported release date on the month of July this year. Reports from Google exclaimed that the new Nexus 7 will also have a similar price of $199 as its predecessor; many believe that it could have gone down to $149.00. However, there’s no concrete news yet that this new Nexus 7 will also run on the same Android 5 Key Lime Pie.
This second generation Nexus 7 also has a different processor compare to the old Nexus 7. Instead of using Nvidia’s Tegra, the power that will pump this new Nexus 7 is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. Given a closer look on Nvidia’s Tegra and Qualcomm’s Snap Dragon, we can find that the Tegra uses quadcore A9 cores, while Qualcomm uses only two A15 cortex cores. Given as such, the two A15 cores will consume less power compare to the four A9 cores, but the A15 cores are more powerful than the A9 cores. So this supports the reason behind the switch in processor by Goole that has something to do with “power”, as taken from reliable sources. The new Nexus 7 will be built by Asus, it will also be thinner compare to its predecessor, and it will also have a higher display of resolution.
Having all these “goodies”, price, built, display, power saving and processor speed, Google will surely discontinue entirely the production of its old Nexus 7. These features will be Nexus 7 second generation backbone for selling, not to mention its competitive price that they always use to their ads by means of exposure. So as to speak, the Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 are way more affordable compare to the other smartphones and tablets that are in the market.
