Mystery 7 inch Android tablet visits the FCC; is this the next-gen Nexus 7?
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!
