Mystery 7 inch Android tablet visits the FCC; is this the next-gen Nexus 7?
An unannounced 7 inch tablet has just paid a visit to the FCC. With a model number of NX74751, could this be a third-generation Nexus 7 (2014) that is running through its pre-launch checklist? The 'NX' prefix on the model number suggests that we are talking about a Nexus model, and Google is listed as the brand name on the FCC documentation.

On the other hand, the only spec listed on the FCC documentation is the 2480mAh cell that powers the slate. Considering that the Nexus 7 (2013) sports a 3950mAh battery though, it is hard to imagine the next generation Nexus 7 taking that much of a backward step in battery life. Still, the second Nexus 7 slate had a slightly smaller capacity cell than the 4325mAh battery on the OG Nexus 7.

All we know at this time, is that a 7 inch tablet has visited the FCC with support for GSM 850/1900, WCDMA 850/1700/1900 and 4G LTE bands 2, 4, 5,7 and 17. There is also support for dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 6.5, and NFC.

Will we see a refresh of the Nexus 7 this year, and if so, will this become an annual event? And will Asus continue to be the manufacturer of the slate? There are plenty of questions, none of which can be answered from the FCC paperwork. The fact that this tablet did visit the FCC, means that we should be learning more about this tablet soon.


Thanks for the tip!

There's no way someone could be so retarded as to make a 7" tablet with a 2480mAh battery...

Batteries arent only measured in mAH
Its actually suppose to WH (or WHr), i.e. V * AH

I'm not sure why people use mAH for smartphones
For laptops it was always WHr
I think maybe because it looks bigger and the V is usually the same

This one is 7.6V * 2480mAH = 18.85 WH
For comparison the Shield tablet has a 19.75 WH and the iPad Mini is 25WH

Like realjjj said this is most likely the Project Tango dev tab
I dont think you can have 7.6V in a thin Nexus tab (usaully more V = more heat)

Not entirely true... Outside of the tablet arena Nexus devices are known for having some pretty terrible battery life, probably to help reduce the price to the bargain level they sell it at.

Maybe Google feels the device has enough optimizations that it can cut the battery back and maintain an acceptable battery life, acceptable being noticeably less stamina than the competition but enough to get you through a few hours of the day.

That was a problem with the older Nexus phones
The Nexus 5 has pretty good battery life

On mine I get 4-5 hours SOT
Not too far from the other flagships which get 5-6 hours SOT

Bluetooth 6.5?

Nothing to do with the Bluetooth version, that is, in fact, the maximum tune-up conducted power measured in decibel-milliwatts (dBm).

They should ditch the 7(too small) totally and move to 8.

Don't think so, 8 inch is not single-hand-friendly (for when you want to hold it flipping over Flipboard or books) unless they trim the bezels, which could in turn lead to bad edge touch recognition.

That's the maximum tune-up conducted power, in decibel-milliwatts (dBm).
