ASUS and Google together seem to be working on the next generation of Nexus 7, and are expected to unveil the device before the end of this month. The next-gen Nexus 7 could have 4G LTE support and an improved hardware configuration.

The Google Nexus 7 has been one of the most popular and successful Android based tablets in the market. However, consumers have already recognized the need for an upgrade. Thus, they all have been waiting for Google to unveil the successor to the current Nexus 7. The good news is that Google seems to have already understood consumer needs and will be answering them soon.

A report from the Economic Daily in Taiwan claims that the refreshed version of Nexus 7 will arrive in the market in July this year. Although no specific release date was mentioned, but since we are almost half way through the month, there’s no harm in waiting for a couple of weeks. Google has not made any official announcement about the Nexus 7 yet, meaning that we still have to consider this report with a grain of salt.

The Google Nexus 7 is expected to have a 7-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The tablet will be powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, dedicated GPU and will have 2GB RAM. It will have internal storage options of 16 and 32GB, but we doubt that it will have a microSD card support. Other important features will include a 5MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera and 3950mAh battery.

Looking at the bright side, we expect the next-gen Nexus 7 to come pre-installed with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and offer a unique Android experience similar to the Moto X Phone.
