Google’s Nexus 7 Tablet Specs Leaked

Google has been widely rumored to launch a low-cost Nexus-branded tablet at Google’s developer conference Google I/O, which starts in couple of days.

Gizmodo Australia has got their hands on the training document, which reveals the specifications of Google’s new Nexus tablet.

So here’re the details from the leaked training document:

  •  7-inch Nexus-branded tablet called Nexus 7
  • The tablet seems to be built by ASUS
  • It will be powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • It will include a GeForce 12-core GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • IPS display with a 178-degree viewing angle, running a resolution of 1280 by 800
  • 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera
  • Storage options: 16GB and 32GB
  • Battery life of approximately 9 hours
  • It will also feature NFC and support Google Wallet

The 8GB Nexus 7 will be available for $199, while the 16GB will be available for $249.

It looks like Nexus 7 will be powered by Android JellyBean, which is expected to be unveiled at Google I/O.

And here’s what it will look like:

The specifications are quite impressive for a low-cost tablet and could definitely give Apple’s iPad (probably $399 iPad 2 and not the new iPad with Retina Display) and Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire a run for their money.

What do you think?
