It looks like we won’t have to wait much longer until Google will launch the next generation Nexus 7, at least according to a Cnet report which cites IHS analyst Ricky Park.
The analyst has offered a few extra details related to the new Nexus 7, or Nexus 7 2, whatever you want to call it. The most interesting piece of information is the fact that Asus won’t be the manufacturer that will mass produce the tablet, instead Google has chosen Quanta, while the displays will be provided by Japan Display and AUO. AUO has been already mentioned in the previous rumors. It seems that the two display manufacturers will begin to ship the products for the Nexus 7 2 sometime on June or July.
In case the information will turn out to be true, it matches the rumors launched by Digi Times, publication who previously claimed that the next Nexus 7 will be released at some point in July, which would make perfect sense as the current Nexus 7 was also launched in July. Further, it seems that Google is not planning to compete with the budget-friendly tablets that will be launched soon by various companies, thus the new Nexus 7 will cost around $229, and we are talking about the 16 GB version.
Another detail that has previously mentioned is the fact that the device will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and a pixel density of 323 pixels per inch.
Another reason why we expect the next-gen Nexus 7 to be launched in the near future is the fact that it has been recently spotted in the FCC’s logs.
Stick around for more information about the Nexus 7 as we’ll provide it as soon as it’s available.
