Google earlier promised to launch its Nexus 7 LTE tablet by late July, but the device has not made its way to the stores. However, just ahead of its release in the U.S. it has broken cover in China.
Simply dubbed as Nexus 7, the new tablet was debuted late last month on the Google Play Store. It includes a big upgrade over the predecessor. The biggest upgrade is the inclusion of 4G LTE that is to replace HSPA+ data speeds.
The problem now is that Google has not yet released the tablet officially. Google promised to make it available on T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon in next couple of weeks. GottaBeMobile.com writes, “We’ve heard that the Nexus 7 LTE will arrive in Italy, and possibly elsewhere, in September, and it appears that the device has made an appearance before its upcoming release date in markets around the world.”
One user on Baidu has posted several photos of the new Nexus 7 LTE tablet that appeared in China. The pics shows LTE-capable Nexus 7 tablet. It was purchased for about $331 and it appears to be authentic. It is a Wi-Fi only model.
As China Telecom does not support 4G LTE, so the new device is not capable utilizing it, but it is clear it has the network capability and it could run 4G LTE.
Well, this is a signal that the Google Nexus 7 4G LTE is not just a rumored device, and it will be hitting the stores soon.
