Nexus 7 returns to Bluetooth SIG, may have Android 4.3
Don't get too excited, because we want to be clear right off the bat: this is not a new model of the Nexus 7. That in itself is a bit odd. For some reason, the same model of Nexus 7 that we've had for a while has returned to the Bluetooth SIG, but not everything in the listing is the same as before.

The Bluetooth SIG listing has the same exact the model number, ME370T, as the original Nexus 7, so this is not a new model. But, there is one interesting difference in the listing: the Android build number for the device is JWR11. Android 4.2.2 is build number JDQ39, so at the very least, this Nexus 7 is carrying a new version of the Android software. 

Last week, there was a leak of a Nexus 4 running Android 4.3, and the build number on that was JWR45B, so it certainly seems like this Nexus 7 is loaded up with the newest version of Jelly Bean. It makes sense though, since Android 4.3 is expected to bring support for Bluetooth 4.0 LE.

I heard rumors that the new Nexus 7 may still retain the Tegra 3 chipset. Wonder if they will or put in the Snapdragon S4 Pro.

Tegra 3 is garbage compared to a15/krait.

KGI Securities is a trustworthy site and pretty much confirmed the APQ8064 (S4 Pro) with the LTPS FHD screen. But it looks like the preparations take more than expected, probably due to the screen, they only contracted AUO for the panel, and it takes time to get things ready, hence the July rumors, which I hope are true.
