The likely Nexus 7 successor from Asus was spotted in an FCC document today. The device is referred to as model number K009 and has Google’s Nexus branding listed, which is a dead giveaway that this is probably the real deal. The document reveals that it will pack LTE support, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

Oddly, though, the tablet has an Asus marking instead of the word “Nexus” written on it, as we saw with the first generation tablet. We expect that will likely change by the time the tablet hits the market, though the Nexus 4 does still maintain an LG logo on it.

We were a bit surprised that the tablet didn’t make its debut at Google I/O, but the latest rumors suggest the Nexus 7 successor will launch in July so it doesn’t look like we have much longer to wait.
