According to screenshots of an alleged online chat with a rep from ASUS, a refreshed Nexus 7 will be released by the end of July, although it’s important to remember that there is no way to verify the authenticity of the chat transcript. Originally posted on Google+, these images reveal the following specs about this upcoming Nexus 7:

  • 7-inch LED with 1980×1200 resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad Core CPU / Snapdragon APQ8064 CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 1.2MP front camera
  • Android 4.3
  • 4000mAh battery
  • Wifi a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • NFC enabled
  • LTE, WCDMA, and GSM support

These specs do jive with previous rumors and speculation about the currently unannounced tablet, although you should take all of this with a massive grain of salt. It does seem odd that an ASUS rep would be so willing to reveal these details about an unannounced product, although it’s certainly not beyond the realm of possibility. It is also suspicious that the rep cites the end of July as the end of the second quarter, when that should really be the end of June (which has already come and gone with no new tablet).

What do you think about this rumor? Or – perhaps more importantly – does this sound like a tablet you’d buy if Google and ASUS can keep the price down?
