Nexus 7 2 makes FCC appearance with Android 4.3

Rumours of Google's Nexus 7 2 have been bolstered by a new FCC filing. The tablet or Asus K008/K009, appeared for Bluetooth SIG certification last week and has now moved on to the FCC.

The devices runs Android 4.3, uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and features a proper Full HD 1080p display. Also included for good measure is 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and a pair of cameras, 1.3-megapixels on the front and 5-megapixels on the back. NFC is there, naturally, as is Wi-Fi 802.11n and LTE. There is also a rumour of Wireless Qi charging.

Asus is also planning to save on size and weight with the new Nexus device, with talk of a 7.5mm thick case and a thinner bezel. Another nice inclusion is the beefy 3950 mAh battery.

While this device isn't confirmation of a Nexus 7 2, the Android 4.3 OS leads us to believe the tablet will be announced around the new operating system update.

This could end up being an Asus-branded device, running on stock Android but not carrying the Google name at all. Or it might end up being a new Nexus device. All should be revealed soon.
