People who attended the Google I/O and those who watched it live on the web were eagerly waiting for the announcement of Nexus 7 2. However, Google did not say anything about it. It only announced a Nexus device which was the Samsung Galaxy S4 Nexus. The Nexus 7 2 will be announced by Google in the near future. Since Google has not given out any details on the upcoming Nexus 7 sequel, potential customers are clueless as to what in store for them.
Still, rumors are doing rounds that the Nexus 7 2 will be rolled out in the month of July which is the same time in previous year when Nexus 7 was launched. Some of the rumored specs of Nexus 7 2 include 7inch full HD 1080p display, quad-core CPU, and 2GB RAM. Many users of Nexus 7 have complained about slow charging, so we feel the sequel edition will offer faster charging. Here are some things that you should not be expecting from the Nexus 7 2:
Even though the device is not been revealed yet, the Nexus 7 2 will not sport the same design as its predecessor. Think about Nexus smartphones. The Nexus One sported a different design as compared to Nexus S. Even other Nexus smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4, all have got different designs. So, it is quite evident that the Nexus 7 2 may appear slimmer or have less weight in a bid to offer distinctive design.
Difference in Cost
Google will be aiming at lowering the sales of the Apple iPad mini. One way through which Google can disturb iPad mini’s sales is to offer their device at a lower price. The iPad mini can be availed for $330 whereas the Nexus 7 can be yours for $199. We feel that when Nexus 7 2 will be launched, it will be priced between $199 and $250.
In July 2012, Google had debuted two types of Nexus 7, 8GB and 16GB version. Both supported Wi-Fi. However, Google released the 3G edition of Nexus 7, the 8GB variant was discontinued and a 32GB variant was introduced. So, when it comes to Nexus 7 2, we don’t think Google will release 8GB variant of the device. They will rather opt to provide the customers with 32GB version. So when Nexus 7 2 is rolled in the market, 16GB and 32GB variants will be made available to the market.
The original Nexus 7 did not come with expandable memory slot. Even though customers have asked repeatedly to provide external memory slot, Google hasn’t paid any heed to their requests. Going by this, we feel the Nexus 7 2 will come with larger inbuilt storage space and also good cloud storage space.
