Google just announced and showcased the new ASUS Nexus 7, with the “world’s highest resolution 7-inch tablet” at 323ppi, giving 30% wider range of colors on pictures and videos than its predecessor. Behind the display seats the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, with 2GB of RAM to power up the new Nexus 7 iteration.
ASUS Nexus 7 2013 has a black theme on design with a few glossy highlights. It is 2mm thinner, 6mm narrower and 50g lighter than the original. As well as the old, the 2013 version of the Nexus 7 banks on with its portability, performance, and the power of Google. Which is why it’ll come with the newest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean features Multi-User with Restricted Profiles, which keeps children from accidentally buying credits or apps. It also adds Bluetooth Smart, which uses low energy. An OpenGL ES 3.0 support has also been included that is a great deal for gaming developers.
Over-the-Air (OTA) updates for the Android 4.3 also starts today for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the Galaxy Nexus.
