Last month, Google launched the Nexus 7 (2013) in India along with the Nexus 5. The tablet was only available on the Google India Play Store until now, but now the tablet’s manufacturer too has launched the tablet. Unlike LG, which priced the Nexus 5 Rs 1,000 more than what was available on the Play Store; Asus has stuck to the same pricing. In other words, the 16GB Wi-Fi only variant is priced at Rs 20,999, while the 32GB LTE variant is priced at Rs 27,999. The tablet is available at retail stores like Croma, Reliance Digital and Vijay Sales among others across the country.
For those needing a recap, the Nexus 7 flaunts a 7-inch full HD IPS (1920×1200 pixels) display and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.5GHz and paired with Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
Other features included are a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel secondary camera, dual stereo speakers, 3,950mAh non-removable battery that is claimed to deliver 9 hours of HD video playback and 10 hours of web browsing.
On the connectivity front, the device features HDMI output, NFC and 4G LTE support and runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. However, Google has released Android 4.4 KitKat for the new Nexus 7 as well.
