Rumor: Next-Gen Google Nexus 7 Release Date And Specs

Armed with excellent specs and a killer price tag, Google’s Nexus 7 has certainly become one of the most popular tablets in the 7-inch category. Still, the tablet is starting to show it’s age, which makes us wonder when they will bring out a true successor.

Although Google and Asus have kept mum about the situation, an ASUS rep who was talking with a customer online might have just spilled the beans about the next-gen Nexus 7. The customer seems to have avoided the name of the tablet and instead used the model number “K009”, a tablet which hit FCC recently and is thought to be the upcoming Nexus 7.

According to the rep, the Asus K009 has a  7-inch 1980 x 1200 display. He also revealed it would feature a Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, 5MP back and 1.2MP front cams and a 4,000 mAh battery. Apparently it will also support LTE and will be available by the month’s end.

Could these be real specs of the new Nexus 7? While anything is possible, the leak appears to be a tad too good and easy to be true.

First of all, how likely is it that an online rep would have access to details about unannounced devices? Even if the rep knows, he/she most probably wouldn’t share such details with just any curious customer, unless maybe the rep has some kind of a grudge with the employer.

Still, these specs don’t seem too terribly crazy, and past rumors have suggested that the tablet would arrive this month running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The rumor certainly fits with the new leak.

    Who knows if this or any leak is really true, staged or fiction. In any case, its always an effort towards sensationalism… like when a pre-released iPhone happened to be ‘accidently’ left behind at coffeeshop, and word spread about it like a pandemic virus. Are most consumers truly that oblivious? For myself, I’d prefer the manufacturer/company just release an official statement about there product in advance of its release. This eliminates most conjecture across-the-board, and diffuses the rumor hounds who like to stir the waters.
