A New Nexus 7: Mega Display & Mini Battery?

Authored by: Loie Favre — May 10, 2013

Next week we will be directing our attention to the Google I/O Developer Conference, where we can at least expect the presentation of Android 4.3. A new edition of the Nexus 7 tablet could also be showing its face. An analysis that was published last night shows us the first specifications.

Of all online platforms, AppleInsider was the first to access to a document, where Mini-Chi Kuo, analyst for KGI Investment Bank, described the possible specifications for a ''new'' Nexus 7. Just like the Nexus 4, it should be equipped with a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Along with that, it's display will apparently have a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. If this be the case, it's a definite step up from its predecessor (1280x800pixels).

Kuo continues his specs dialogue with two cameras: the back camera of 5MP has received a noteworthy improvement. Ticking along with a 4000 mAh battery, it took a significant downswing from its forerunner that boasted 4325 mAh.

Furthermore, the Qi standard will support wireless charging. And the cherry on top not to omit: the new version of the Nexus 7 will be coming with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Take a look yourself:

The new Nexus 7's exterior will entail a thinner border than that of its precursor. Kuo made no remarks in regards to the internal memory, though our Android-loving friends over at Android Authority stipulate that it will come with at least 16 gigabytes, though variations with either 32 or 64 GB are also expected.

A word to the wise: take these specifications with a grain of salt, because after all, these are just speculations from an analyst. The battery information is especially puzzling. Why would a new edition of the Nexus 7 have a display with a much higher resolution, yet a smaller battery? It's guaranteed that this would diminish the battery life. Whether Google will really assemble the technical data as described above is questionable. What do you think?

Loie Favre found her way to her present passion for Android and smartphone technology after experiencing an epiphany when she held her Galaxy Note 2. From that point onwards, you can find her with her nose buried in countless Android apps and different smartphone models, and thanking her lucky stars that she gets to work at something she loves.

  • LOL so what was the point of the article again?

    "Whether Google will really assemble the technical data as described above is questionable"

    I mean seriously, if it didn't come from an Asus or Google employee, actually not even any employee - someone who is involved in production, design or marketing, would it really even matter?
