It looks as though there is a new and unannounced 7” that has started to make the rounds on news pages, considering how it has just picked up FCC approval along the way. Sporting the model number NX74751, so far there has been speculation that this could very well be a third generation Nexus 7 (2014) which might just make an appearance in due time. As for the ‘NX’ prefix that is found on the model number, it does point to the very real possibility of a Nexus device compared to other models. After all, in the FCC documentation itself, Google has been listed as the brand name.
As for the rest of the hardware specifications, there is not much progress done on that front, since the only thing listed in the FCC documentation happens to be a 2,480mAh cell which will keep the slate powered. Taking into consideration that the Nexus 7 (2013) happened to arrive with a 3,950mAh battery right out of the box, it does not sound right at all for a next generation Nexus 7 to take a step backward where battery life is concerned. However, it must be noted that the second Nexus 7 tablet did feature a capacity cell that is a wee bit smaller.
We do know that this will be a 7” tablet that has support for GSM 850/1900, WCDMA 850/1700/1900 and 4G LTE bands 2, 4, 5,7 and 17. As for the other connectivity options, they will include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 6.5, and NFC.
