A couple of days ago we reported that the FCC has approved a new Asus K009 tablet, some digging around revealed that it actually seems to be carrying the Nexus brand. It is believed that this tablet is the next generation Nexus 7 which Google might announce next month. A new Nexus 7 photo has been spotted over at Bluetooth Special Interest Group, but there’s obviously no way of confirming if this is the final version of Google’s next generation Nexus 7.
Over at the Bluetooth SIG, this device is listed as the Asus K009, not the Nexus 7. This device is described as a 7 inch LED capacitive multitouch screen touting tablet that is powered by a quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. Other alleged specs include an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 1.2 megapixel front camera, and a 3,950 mAh battery. This tablet is expected to ship with Android 4.3 pre-installed, an update that is yet to be unveiled as well. The first Nexus was also manufactured by Asus, so it won’t be a surprise if it manufactures the second one as well. The new Nexus 7 is expected to be priced around $299.
