The Nexus 7’s screen is obviously seven inches. And it’s not surprising with respect to what we already knew about it. It is a Full HD screen, whose resolution is 1920 by 1200 pixels. This means that the density of pixels per inch will be 323 PPI. The screen is not surprising, as it was expected, but without a doubt, the fact that it is now a Full HD screen is something really remarkable.
Processor and RAM
It also has specifications typical of a high-end tablet. The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core. The same with the Sony Xperia Z. This is accompanied by a 2 GB RAM.
These specs, at the price, are practically incredible. Keep in mind that we can say that it is a high-end tablet, but with a price that is typical of a basic-range tablet.
No technical specifications have been offered about the sound that the tablet will have, but it has been highlighted that it will have stereo speakers, on both sides of the tablet if we place it in a landscape way. And it is not only about that, but also that it will have a Virtual Surround system, capable of virtualizing 360-degree sound.
Two cameras. And this is remarkable, because the previous Nexus 7 did not have a main camera. In this case, yes, it has a five megapixel camera that will be the main one, and with a front camera that will be used to make video calls.
In this case, the Nexus 7 will have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as the operating system. Thus, the first to officially have this version of the operating system. This means that it will have all the news that came in this version of the operating system. Among others, we find the possibility of having multiple accounts on the same tablet, just as on a conventional computer.
Google Play Games
To this should be added the arrival of Google Play Games. And it seems that the Mountain View company wants to turn the tablet into the ambassador of this new online gaming system. Among other things, in Google Play Games we can find the games we are playing and that have compatibility with this system, other friends who are also playing these games, as well as the achievements obtained in them.
A tablet designed to play
The Nexusu 7 is the tablet that the company has decided to turn into a portable game console. And it actually is. It has stereo speakers and technical specifications that allow you to play high-quality games.
Price and launch
There will be three different versions. One version will be 16 GB and will have WiFi, the most basic. There will be another version with a memory of 32 GB. And there will be two variants of this, one with WiFi and one with 4G. 4G will only arrive in the United States, with operators AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, costing 349 euros. However, the most basic version will be much cheaper, costing 229 euros. While the 32 GB version will cost 269 euros.
The launch of the tablet will take place on July 30 in the United States, although it will take longer to reach the rest of the world. Specifically, in the coming weeks it will reach eight other countries, among which are the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, South Korea, Australia, and Spain.
When it comes to the design of the new tablet, we don’t see too much new either. It has the same front of the seven-inch screen, without a thinner bezel. However, the tablet itself is 1.8 millimeters thinner, and it is also lighter. The tablet will be sold in a single black version, with a non-slip casing.
It can be said, without a doubt, that it is a tablet with an unbeatable value for money. Actually, there is nothing new conceptually from last year. A tablet with high-end features, and a very affordable price. It is true that this time it is somewhat more expensive, perhaps to distance itself somewhat more from the most basic tablets, and allow them to continue to have a market. Probably one of the best possible purchases if we want a new tablet.
