The Nexus 7 2013 edition was announced yesterday along with Android 4.3, and features much better hardware than last year’s variant. With a full-HD screen and 2 GB RAM along with a quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU, it is clear that the Nexus 7 will be a formidable tablet in the 7-inch segment.
The current-gen Nexus 10, made by Samsung, is already a great tablet and features high-end hardware in the form of an Exynos 5250 SoC that includes a dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 CPU, Mali-T604 GPU, 2 GB RAM, 16/32 GB internal memory and a 5 MP camera on a 10.1-inch device with a resolution of 2500X1600. All that we could see in the new variant is a faster SoC, possibly the Snapdragon 800, which includes LTE connectivity.
