The K009 is described by the Bluetooth SIG as featuring “a 7 inch LED-backlit capacitive multitouch screen for easy carrying and fantastic multi-media experience everywhere. It is empowered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU with the highest performance.” So this has to be the next-generation Nexus 7, right?
The screen resolution of the upcoming tablet is still unknown, but it might be higher than 1280 x 800 pixels. In any case, the new Nexus should come with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (which hasn’t been announced yet), a 5MP rear camera, 1.2MP front-facing camera, and a 3,950 mAh battery.
While the photo of the new tablet – see below – is too small for a clear view, we can see that the bezel around the display is a bit thinner than on the current Nexus 7.
Asus is also the manufacturer of the first-generation Nexus 7, which uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, and costs $199 (16GB version), or $249 (32GB). Prices for the new Nexus tablet might start at $229.
