We already saw a series of Google Nexus handsets made available for purchase around the world, but it seems that the Internet giant is gearing up to launch some larger devices in the Nexus lineup.
One of these should be a 7-inch tablet PC coming from Asus, long rumored to be on its way to the market with Google’s logo on its back.
According to previously leaked info on the device, we should see the tablet powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 application processor, while featuring a low price tag, under $250 (around €200).
Moreover, the upcoming device was said to run under a new version of the Android platform. Dubbed Jelly Bean, this OS flavor is now said to be Android 4.1, and not Android 5.0 as previously rumored.
For the time being, however, nothing has been officially confirmed on what the upcoming device will have to offer to its users.
The recently leaked draft press photos with it, available courtesy of phoneArena
, show a good looking device, with a white front and a two-tone back.
also seems to be packed with a full suite of sensors, which rather remind us of current smartphones, and it is also expected to feature a photo snapper on the back.
The aforementioned Tegra 3 application processor should be complemented by 1GB of RAM, but details on the rest of the specifications remain undisclosed.
Apparently, the new version of Android will arrive on devices with various enhancements over the Ice Cream Sandwich OS, but it will not deliver a complete visual overhaul.
The upcoming Google Nexus tablet PC might arrive with better Google services packed inside, as well as with some new ones, if rumors are to be believed.
Chances are that Google and Asus will make the new device official later this month during the I/O conference, so stay tuned to learn more info on the matter.
