Refreshed Nexus 7 details emerge ahead of Google I/O

Google may introduce a refreshed version of the Nexus 7 tablet at Google I/O next week, according to rumors surfacing in the past few months. With word of a faster processor and higher resolution display, the word is that the tablet will feature a thinner bezel and overall thinner and lighter form factor.


New details arrived late this week which provide a more specific look at what might be in store for us.  Keep in mind that these are unconfirmed and subject to change. We’ll find out soon enough (maybe) if this is what Google is cooking up for Google I/O.

  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • 7-inch LTPS display (1920 x 1200 resolution) (WUXGA)
  • Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064)
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • HD front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth
  • 4000mAh battery (support for Qi wireless charging)

    With the same screen size as the current Nexus 7 and that resolution, the screen would be 518 ppi. That seems a bit ridiculous.

      Are you sure? The HTC One has a 4.7 inch, 1920×1080 pixel display and its ppi is 468.

        Huh, you’re right. I’d always assumed ppi was implicitly referring to area but it seems it’s a lineal thing. In that case it would be 324 ppi which makes a lot more sense.

    Why the S4 Pro? I’d much rather see the Qualcom 600/800 or Tegra 4. Will going with the outdated Snapdragon reduce cost that much?

    Wireless charging will be awesome addition. Useful for those who already have a wireless charger for the N4
