A new report claims the next-generation Nexus 7 tablet is just around the corner. According to Digitimes, Google and ASUS are planing to launch a second-generation Nexus 7 in late July or early August. The tablet will reportedly feature an upgraded 7-inch display with 1980 x 1200-pixel resolution along with a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 5-megapixel camera on the back. It has been estimated that Google could sell as many as 8 million units worldwide, however some analysts are skeptical because of the increased number of low-cost tablets available today. The second-generation Nexus 7 is expected to be priced between $199 to $249 for the Wi-Fi only model.
