Google presents new Nexus 7

As expected Google yesterday announced and showed the new Nexus 7 tablet that will be released end of july in the US and soon afterwards in selected countries. 


While the new Nexus 7 keeps the same screen size as the “old” model it still has some nice upgrades that is sure to make it as much of a success as the old Nexus 7 was.

  • Full-HD resolution (1920×1200) giving the tablet a pixel density of 323 dpi.
  • Thinner and lighter than the previous Nexus 7.
  • Back-facing camera
  • Quad-core CPU and faster GPU. 

Here is a comparison of the old Nexus 7 and the new Nexus 7.

Some might wonder why Google went with the older Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU but it most probably has to do with keeping the cost down. From what we have seen the tablet still will be speedy so it should not be a problem.

The price of the new tablet is:  $230 (16GB), $270 (32GB), $350 (32GB, WiFi + mobile data). The LTE version will work for ATT, Verizon and T-Mobile, all in One SKU.

The new Nexus 7 will be available end of June in the US and “soon after” in selected other markets.
