Asus employee allegedly reveals Nexus 7 successor specs

An Asus employee has potentially revealed, through the Asus Live Chat Support service, the specifications for the next Nexus 7 tablet codenamed "K009". The employee revealed the specifications to an "eager" fan who wanted to know when the tablet might be available to the public, which the employee stated might be before the end of July.

According to this employee, who was quoting an internal and unconfirmed specifications list, the Nexus 7 successor will have a 7-inch "LED" (presumably LED-backlit LCD) display with an impressive resolution of "1980 x 1200" (probably actually 1920 x 1200). The device will apparently be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset or a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chipset with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.

Other specs listed include a 5 MP rear camera, the yet-to-be-announced Android 4.3, a 4,000 mAh battery, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC and LTE radios. Whether or not these specifications are true remains to be seen, but if the tablet is to be released before the end of July then an announcement must be just around the corner.
