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.

    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 Will going with the outdated Snapdragon reduce cost that much?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
