The Nexus 7 2 continues to be among the most talked about device right now. What is fuelling the rumors is the lack of any sort of official dialogue from Google on anything related to the elusive tablet. It was expected to be launched at the Google I/O event held a few weeks ago though much to the disappointment of many, the next gen tablet didn’t even found a mention at the event. Needless to say this is only adding to the craze for the device which it seems is shooting through the roof.
Meanwhile, it’s a steady stream of rumors and leaks that we are forced to satiate our longing for the device with. What is surprising though is that there has been no image of the next gen Nexus tablet that has come our way so far given the amount of spec leaks that we have come across. But then, that has failed to dampen the spirits and every bit of leaks or rumors that emerge online get lapped up in seconds.
Take for instance the recent revelation of an Asus rep to a prospective Nexus 7 2 buyer. Whether it was inadvertent or it’s just crap, what has come to the fore is a whole lot of details providing us with a somewhat clear picture of what the Nexus 7 2 will have under its hood. Like its going to be a quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip powering the device, duly aided by a 2 GB RAM. Internal storage will amount to 32 GB and will include other niceties such as support for LTE / WCDMA / GSM, along with connectivity options of Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0. A 7 inch 1980 x 1200 pixel display will make up the front and will come with a 5 mp camera at the rear and a 1.2 mp unit at the front for video chats. The device will get its juice from a 4,000 mAh battery and will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right out of the box.
As for the tablet’s launch schedule, the rep mentioned it will be in the second quarter of this year, which means it is just this month left for the device to launch, if what the rep reveled is true indeed.
