The High-Headed Google Nexus 7 2 : Bombarded With Another Leak, Rumors and Price Confirmed

To build up the anticipation and give us a better idea of the device, certain reports have revealed pictures of Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 2 that shows it to be an updated and refresh variant of its predecessor.

This 7-inch Nexus 7 2 holds a clear 1080p LCD display and sports a 5-megapixel rear camera with 1.2-megapixel camera at the front. The smartphone boasts two speakers, placed in two locations, one at the back and the other by the USB port.

Sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the Nexus 7 2 holds 4GB of DDR3L RAM, with storage choices of 16GB or 32GB.

As per reports, the 16GB version will cost $229 USD (AU$248) while the 32GB will run you $269 (AU$291).

Considering the possible flaws, memory could be an issue in this device, just like the existing Nexus 7. Coming out sans the expandable storage choices like the predecessor, it is unlikely that Google is trying to fix the issues in this latest device.    

The Nexus 7 2 is speculated to hit the market this August. Also watch out for July 24th as Google is expected to spill more beans on the device.… Read the rest

Apple iPad Mini Vs Google Nexus 7 2: It All Boils Down to Retina Display

Amid expectations all build up for Apple’s upcoming iPad Mini to hold a better display, certain rumors indicate that Google will launch its forthcoming Nexus 7 2 with Retina Display.

Speculations indicate the screen resolution of Google Nexus 7 2 to be 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. The iPad Mini will roll out sans the Retina Display with a resolution of 1,024 x 768 pixels. Clearly the display of Nexus 7 2 is going to be brighter and better.

However, Google is expected to unveil the device with a price tag in between $249 to $299 for the basic Wi-Fi variant, whereas Apple’s non-Retina iPad mini might roll out with a $329 price tag. The costing also makes the former a better choice.

Nevertheless, the lighter and thinner Apple’s device will come packed with a faster A6 processor and many iOS 6 applications. Google’s device will house a Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon 600 chip.

Running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software, some of the expected specifications in Google Nexus 7 2 might include wireless charging, an LTE option and a 5 megapixel camera at the rear.

However, we hear Apple is working on a Retina version iPad Mini, which the firm will roll out in 2014.

As for now, we feel that the inclusion of Retina Display will surely push the Nexus 7 2 into a better league as compared to non-retina iPad Mini.

All That Glitters is Not The New Google Nexus 7: Might Not Be The Deal Breaker!

A question mark hangs over the fate of Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 2, just as anticipation builds up regarding its launch in the market.

Considering the leaked rumors surrounding the device, the Nexus 7 2 might not be a breakthrough tab that users would love to splurge on.

Coming in competition with Apple’s iPad Mini and iPad Mini 2, Google will have to roll out the Nexus 7 2 with powerful specifications to make its device outshine the former.

Running a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, the Nexus 7 2 is expected to hold 2GB of RAM with in-built storage of up to 32GB. The device is expected to come in 16GB and 32GB variants so the storage space is limited. Its rivals such as Apple offer 64GB of storage space in iPad Mini and 128GB in the iPad.

This 7-inch tab will roll out with a 1,980 x 1,200 display and a 5-megapixel camera at the rear with 1.2-megapixel at the front, which might be a disappointment for those who have a better camera quality in their smartphones.

Considering the software, Google was expected to house the latest Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie but we hear, the Nexus 7 2 will hold Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead, which is just a minor update.

It seems like Google is following the same tradition of not including a microSD card slot in the device, which is missing in the existing Nexus 7 as well. The device is also rumored to sport the same design as its predecessor; the Nexus 7.

Second-Gen Nexus 7 Set for Release in July

If you are planning to buy a tablet anytime soon, wait until July as you see what Google has to offer. Certain reports indicate towards the launch of the second-generation 7-inch Nexus 2 tablet that Google plans to unveil in July. The ASUS-made Nexus 7 tab has brought valuable achievement to the internet search giant.

Considering its features, the Nexus 7 2 is expected to feature a 7-inch low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) panel, which is produced mainly by AU Optronics (AUO). AUO is the same firm that has the order for Apple’s iPad Mini 2.

Two days ago, yet another report in DigiTimes claimed that Elan Microelectronics is on track to ship touchscreen controller ICs for the next Nexus 7 iteration. Apparently, it is believed that Google will roll out around 1 million Nexus 7 2 tablets before the end May. It’s also speculated that the number might touch the mark of eight million before 2013 ends.

However, no specific release date for the Nexus 7 2 has been announced. If the tablet hits the shelves in July, Apple should be prepared for some tough completion for its iPad Mini 2.
