Less than a year after the launch of the Nexus 7, Google seems to have plans of upgrading the hardware for the 7 inch tablet manufactured by Asus.
The new version of the tablet will have
- A higher screen resolution
- A thinner bezel design
- Qualcomm's Snapdragon chip
The Qualcomm chip will replace the NVidia Tegra 3, as Qualcomm's chip is both powerful and battery efficient. The Nexus 4 uses a Qualcomm chip too, so I wouldn't be surprised if this rumor is true.
They also say this is the first time, Google's device plans are revealed before the launch, hoping to trigger sales , as they expect to ship 6 to 8 Million units this year.
