Did the Nexus 7 just get FCC approval? This week a strange unidentified Google-branded tablet passed through the US FCC office that seems to indicate a new Nexus 7.

It was previously assumed that the next Nexus devices would be the Nexus 8 or 9 (Flounder) and the Nexus 6 smartphone, but it could be that a refresh of the 7-inch model is in the pipeline too.


Whilst no specific specs were revealed, the connectivity options for the device were and it includes support for 4G carrier bands (2 and 5), GSM, WCDMA, Bluetooth Class 1 (Version 4.0, LE+EDR), 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS.

The new Nexus 7 is shown as manufactured by LG, so could we be looking at a Google Play Edition G Pad? That would be pretty nice!
