While official details about the Nexus 7 2 are next to none there are several leaks from reliable and unreliable sources circulating on the web that give us an idea of what’s coming next week when Google and ASUS executives will take the stage in San Francisco. There is not much that we don’t know about the Nexus 7 2 already.

Rumors and leaked information on the internet suggests that Nexus 7 2 will feature a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. It is also reported that the new Nexus 7 2 will feature a better display than its predecessor with a resolution of 1980 x 1200 pixels that will have a screen size of 7-inch.

Nexus 7 was a bigger success when it was released a year ago and Google could make a successful product this year if it stays on top of its game. Apple’s iPad mini has been going strong and there’s no big competitor to its yet. The announcement of Nexus 7 2 could change that and could give Apple a run for its money.
Apple is also going to launch the second generation of iPad mini tablet and this time it is believed that he Retina Display will finally be included. If that’s the case then the war between Apple and Google in the smaller tablet arena is going to be nothing but interesting.
