Nexus 7 successor to pack Qualcomm processor, coming in May: Report

A report coming from new-snapdragon-chip

Chances are we might be seeing Snapdragon 600 processor in the tablet, but the memo from McConnell had mentioned the presence of S4 Pro in the tablet. To remind you, the existing Nexus 7 tablet packs NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor.

Since the Digitimes report is paid members only (which we are not), we could not get any other details, which it might or might not have.  We will add an update later if we find out anything.

Another Digitimes reports notes that the next version of Nexus 7 tablet will be released in May, indicating that we are going to see an announcement ahead of Google I/O 2013, which seems very odd considering that we would expect Nexus 7 II to run on next version of Android, which Google will most probably announce at Google I/O itself.

While, we are inclined to believe the Qualcomm processor part, the May launch time-line seems off and please take it with a pinch of salt.

Digitimes notes:

Asustek’s second-generation Nexus 7 is expected to appear in May with enhanced specifications and a price of US$249 to challenge its 7- to 8-inch competitors including the Apple iPad mini.

In related news, Asus is also working on a Clover Trail+ smartphone that will be announced in June and packs a 5.5-inch display.
