Sales of second generation Google Nexus 7 could reach 8 million units in 2013
The second generation model of the Google Nexus 7 is expected to replace the NVIDIA Tegra 3 that is powering the device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor because of the better power efficiency with the Snapdragon chip. The 7 inch screen will have improved resolution of 1980 x 1200, up from the 1280 x 800 resolution seen on the original 7 inch glass. That will raise the pixel density smartly from the current 216ppi. Speaking about the panel, it will offer a narrower bezel, providing the user with more real estate. Most new devices are coming to market these days with a thinner, narrower bezel. The slate will come with a camera on back (5MP) and one on front (1.2MP) and is expected to be priced in the range of $199-$249 for a version with Wi-Fi connectivity.
The original model of the Google Nexus 7 sold about 6 million units thanks to its low price. But with a number of new 7 inch models launched with lower prices, the Google Nexus 7 needs more than just affordability in order to be competitive. Thus, the revised specs, which could help the slate compete enough to reach 8 million in sales.
