Today, during a press conference in San Francisco, California, Google unveiled their second generation Nexus 7 Android tablet. The new device, which is both thinner and lighter than its predecessor, features a number of welcomed enhancements, including an improved display with a resolution of 1,920-by-1,200 and a pixel density of 323 pixels per inch (PPI).
The latest Google-branded tablet comes equipped with a Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and a formidable 9 hour battery life.
Although the latest iteration of the Nexus 7 received improvements in nearly every department, the 1.2 megapixel front camera and 5 megapixel rear camera were left unattended to – presumably to cut back on the overall cost of the device.
While the tablet has yet to be released, customers will be able to order the new Nexus 7 in either 16GB or 32GB variations on Google’s Play Store on July 30th. Stay tuned for complete coverage regarding the Nexus 7 and future tablets from Google.
