Next-generation Nexus 7 will feature 1080p out and wireless charging
New details have leaked regarding Google's upcoming Nexus 7. The tablet is now expected to support wireless charging out of the box and support 1080p out, which could explain the rumored increase in price.
Google has scheduled a press event on July 24 and it is widely believed that the company will announce an update to its Android operating system and launch its next-generation Nexus 7 tablet. Android 4.3 is not expected to be a major update, but will bring a few new features and minor tweaks. Recent leaks have shown Google will be updating the camera app in Android 4.3 to add more intuitive controls and options that usually get covered by a user's finger. The update will also add new features to the Notification System; allowing applications to access notifications with the ability to read, dismiss, and activate buttons on them. Android 4.3 is expected to be released to Nexus devices shortly after the event and will ship with the new Nexus 7.
The Nexus 7 is expected to be offered in both 16GB and 32GB models with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 4G LTE options. It is expected to feature an updated design that will include a thinner bezel around its display. It will reportedly feature a 7-inch 1920 z 1200 resolutions display, run Android 4.3, powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, include 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, 2GB (or possibly 4GB) of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front facing camera, and will be packing a 3,950 mAh battery. The tablets are expected to be priced at $229 and $269, which is a little more expensive than the $199 and $249 Google charges for the current Nexus 7.
Engadget has received a tip and an image that might explain why there will be an increase in price. The tipster sent an image of the 32GB Nexus 7's product information tag and it reveals two new features. The tablet will include support for 1080p output using a "Slim port" for playing HD content and will also include wireless charging capabilities.
We'll have to wait until July 24 to hear the official word from Google, but the Nexus 4 already supports wireless charging out of the box and it looks like the Nexus 7 might too.
