When it comes to design, the tablet is said to have a smaller bezel and feature a plastic case. Kuo provides details on the actual suppliers for various second-gen Nexus 7 components, see screenshot above, but we have no way of confirming them at this time.
According to the analyst, Google would sell the device at cost, losing from $5 to $10 with each device, and would make it available through the Play Store and other retailers. Interestingly, storage isn’t mentioned – we’d expect at least 16GB on the cheapest version – but it looks like versions with more memory could also be launched.
Not that it matters as much what Google will call the new tablet, the second-gen Nexus 7 is named “new Nexus 7″ by Kuo, not Nexus 2 7.0 or any other strange-looking product name we’d expect to see there.
That said, we’ll cover Google I/O in great detail next week at which point we’ll be able to tell you more about this just-a-rumor-for-now next-gen Nexus 7.
