The other day we told you how the next-generation version of the Google Nexus 7
tablet was seen visiting the FCC as the ASUS K008/K009
. With a higher resolution screen (1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200), twice the RAM, Android 4.3 installed and a thinner bezel, the tablet is expected to launch at about the same time that Android 4.3 does. Now, a small picture of the ASUS K009 has been seen at the Bluetooth SIG. And while it is hard to see any detail at all, if you look really closely, you might see the front-facing camera and the thinner bezel.
The Bluetooth SIG has a major contradiction. That document shows the slate powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 compared to the FCC paperwork, which shows the tablet powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro. This could be a simple omission
involving one letter. The former is the APQ8064T while the latter is the APQ8064 and it is more likely that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 will be found inside the tablet. A 4000mAh battery is keeping the lights on and there is 4G LTE connectivity with this model.
With the FCC visit and the Bluetooth SIG appearance, it probably won't be terribly long until the refreshed Google Nexus 7 sees the light of day.
