Nexus 7 (2013)
There is no doubt that Google has made some great tablets which have seen their own share of success, but somehow they have always been overshadowed by Apple iPads. In fact the dominance of Apple in the tablet market is so incredibly strong that the rest of the competitors lag far behind in terms of market share. We have to admit Google Nexus 7 (2013) is a great device and is highly underrated. Made in collaboration with Asus, the new Nexus 7 boasts quite a few key improvements from the original version. It’s not only 2mm slimmer than the old Nexus 7 but also lighter by 50g (WiFi model). The new Nexus 7 comes with a full HD 7-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels which brings the pixel density to 323ppi, only one less than the iPad mini 2 with retina display and a huge improvement from the original Nexus 7.

For one thing it’s a Nexus device with specifications that would very easily allow it to run the new OS that’s touted to run on low-end Android devices. Secondly, it’s a Nexus device period!

It came to pass that a Nexus 5 suffered a similar fate and well, some kind folks have shared the image of the same with us for further speculation and knowing smiles. Firstly, looking at this image we are clear that this seems very close to a description made in the Android 4.4 KitKat promo video, which showed off horizontal Nexus branding and a large camera lens. This could well be the LG phone making rounds in FCC now.
