A new report from Digitimes claims that the next-generation Nexus 7 is on the verge of launching and will arrive at some point in the next few weeks. The report claims that Google and ASUS are planning to launch sometime near the end of July or early August.
The new pure Android tablet will feature an upgraded seven-inch display that sports a 1980x1200 pixel resolution along with a quad-core QUALCOMM Snapdragon 600 processor. A 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera as well as a 5 megapixel rear camera will handle the imaging duties while 2 GB of RAM keep everything running nice and smooth.
Industry analysts are speculating that Google could sell as many as 8 million units worldwide but others are quick to point out that this number seems to be inflated as there are many more choices in the low-cost tablet market than there were when the original Nexus 7 launched. We are expecting the second-generation Nexus 7 to be sold at a price point of $199 to $249 for the Wi-Fi-only model.
