Google has announced the much-awaited and newer version of the Nexus 7. I was gifted the older Nexus 7 last Christmas, along with some tablet accessories and it has lived up to every expectation so far. It has its limitations and occasional hick-ups, given that it’s a budget tablet and all, but it definitely ranks high up in my books and is almost up to par with Apple and Samsung’s tablets.
The new Nexus 7 received a bunch of upgrades, such as a rear-facing camera which its predecessor doesn’t have. It will come equipped with an Adreno 320 GPU and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM.
The tablet will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The Nexus 7 measures 7.9 inches by 4.5 inches and weighs just 11.2 ounces. Sixteen GB and 32GB versions are available. Best Buy is currently accepting pre-orders for the device.
