One of the most recent Google I/O rumours we relayed suggested we’d meet a Google Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.7 come May, with both devices built by LG and possibly rocking Key Lime Pie.
The latest rumour from out east is significantly more plausible, but significantly less exciting, suggesting we’ll simply meet a refreshed Google Nexus 7. Hmm.
That’s the word according to DigiTimes, and their – you guessed it – “sources from the upstream supply chain”.
Said sources begin by projecting that Google Nexus 7 shipments will surpass six million units by the end of January.
In addition, a second generation Google Nexus 7 is tipped for a May launch, which presumably means Google I/O.
The second generation Google Nexus 7 will supposedly grab the price baton from the existing models, however “several specifications will be upgraded” – most notably a new display with “Full HD resolution”. The existing Google Nexus 7, incidentally, has a resolution of 1280 x 800.
As for the operating system, the Google Nexus 7 will of course rock the latest version of Android – whatever that happens to be, though DigiTimes' sources reckon it’ll be “upgraded Jelly Bean” as opposed to Key Lime Pie.
Finally, we're told that combined shipments of the first and second generation Google Nexus 7 will reach 10 million this year.
