New Google Nexus 7 coming in July

Qualcomm Snapdragon insides

Reuters has now confirmed, thanks to two independent sources, that the second generation Google Nexus 7 will be coming in July and will be indeed powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon chip rather than an Nvidia Tegra.

We have been writing about Asustek's decision of going with Qualcomm rather than Nvidia Tegra chip for the new Nexus 7 since early February, and today, Reuters managed to confirm with its sources that rumors have been true and the second-generation Nexus 7 is indeed coming, but in July.

According to Reuters sources, the new Nexus 7 will have a higher screen resolution, a thinner bezel design and will use Qualcomm's chip. The reason behind going for Qualcomm mostly lies in the fact that Nvidia had an unexpected delay with Tegra 4 and there is the obvious lack of 4G LTE as well. According to earlier rumors, the price of Qualcomm's and Nvidia's chipsets were quite similar so it was even easier for Asus to make the decision.

Reuters note that Google might decide to sell the new Nexus 7 for US $199, which means that we might see a good price cut on the old model. On the other hand, Asus and Google might simply decide to discontinue the old Nexus 7 and price the new one even aggresively.

In any case we'll know for sure as we draw closer to Computex show and rumored July launch date.
