Granted, the rep places Q2 end in the month of July, but it's not the first less than knowledgeable rep, nor will this be the last. More fun is the fact that he gave out the full list of specs with the warning that this is still not public, yet they'll send it out for review anyway. Either the announcement is imminent, or the rep doesn't really care, or maybe both.
As you can see below, the 7" 1980x1200 pixels screen has been confirmed, along with a Snapdragon 600 processor, 5 MP rear camera, 4000 mAh battery, and optional 4G connectivity.
Google Nexus 7 OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop, 4.4, 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2, 4.1.2, 4.1.1, 4.1 View Full specs
- Display 7.0" 1280 x 800 pixels
- Camera / 1.2 MP front
- Processor NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L, Quad-core, 1300 MHz
- Storage 8 GB
- Battery 4325 mAh

If >4000 mAh capacity batteries can be shoved in 6 inch phones, they could have done a little better this time around with this tablet in that regard. Everything else seems decent though

Yes, and the price will be $350$, because a larger battery means more difficult to make it slim, ok? People are never satisfied, want everything good but a low price. If you want, you can buy an external portable battery.

I know, I am willing to pay $700 for a 4.7"-5" phone to have 4000mAh-6000mAh battery :D I really don't mind if the phone is thicker. In the end of the day, end user experience goes a long way for me.

Really? I used the One X for a year and its performance on Jellybean was outstanding, faster than S3s with their "more powerful" Exynos Quad. I did side by side comparisons and the "Tegcrap 3" was faster opening apps and in general UI tasks..

I have a Nexus 7, swear to Jeebus my China phone clone Mediatek 1.2 ghz quad +PowerVr544 renders smoother games...I mean even the tegra - optimized games such as Real Boxing ...you don't know what youre talking about...OR haven't used a device outside of Nvidia The Tegra struggles on a LOT of games I tell ya

Yes it struggles on games and needs aggressive governors and custom kernels to unleash it, but outside of the gaming zone it isn't that bad as you make it out to be. Of course the Mediatek chip will have better performance as the PowerVR 544 is better than Tegra 3's GPU and is a newer chipset. Do you remember Tegra 3 came out in 2011? But still Qualcomm is ahead of Nvidia by a long shot now, loving the performance of the Adreno 320 on my HTC One.

Tegra 3 is good enough, it's Asus i/o, should do some research. Asus memory is terrible, its a known fact on the Transformer Prime etc. When you are downloading or transferring file, it lags like crap. Nothing to do with Tegra 3, it performs just as well as other Quad Core A9's. Its better than the Mediatek but due to the bottleneck of the i/o. The memory is really terrible, around 7 - 18mb, compared to normal standard speed of 50+.

S600 on a big Tab like 7inch. What a joke. Lags lags lags... So Nexus 10 uses a A15 dual core E5420, they should be used the quad core version clocked at 2.3Ghz with PvrSgx554 quadcore GPU clocked at 550Mhz ®
