Following a quick pit stop at the FCC this week, the supposed Nexus 7 successor has made an appearance at the Bluetooth SIG. And, in addition to a thumbnail-sized picture, there is an informative little paragraph that reveals all kinds of details, including processor, camera and battery. The information, however, slightly contradicts what was unveiled by the FCC filing, putting into question the validity of either listing’s specs.
According to the Bluetooth SIg, the upcoming Nexus 7 will include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip—the FCC document said Snapdragon S4 Pro—5-megapixel rear camera, 4,000mAh battery, LTE and a 1920×1080 resolution display. Put that in a package that’ll supposedly cost $229 for the 16GB model, and I’d say Google has another hit on its hands.
Of course, these quick regulatory stops are tricky since nothing has been officially unveiled yet. The fact that they are showing up in more well-known channels, though, suggests we could see an announcement any day now. Until then, we have some pretty nice specs to ponder.
