It’s been a year since the debut of the Nexus 7, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone what Google and Asus are gearing up to launch its successor. The ASUS Nexus K009 tablet has made its way through the FCC with documentation which lists quite a few of the device’s internal components. Specs include a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm APQ-8064 S4 Pro processor, 4,000 mAh Li-ion battery, LTE connectivity compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T here in the US and a rear-facing 5 megapixel camera. A similarly named ASUS K008 was recently hit the Bluetooth SIG, suggesting that a WiFi-only variant may be an option for those who do not need a constant LTE connection.
While not specifically listed, the assumption can be made that the ASUS Nexus K009 tablet will feature a 7 to 8 inch display. We have no clue when the Nexus 7 replacement will be available through Google Play or how much it will sell for. Do you think the ASUS Nexus K009 and its spec bump make it a worthy successor to the beloved Nexus 7?
