It wouldn’t be the first time a benchmark site has outed an Android device, and it looks like it wont be the last. The 7-inch ASUS Nexus 7 was just outed in a Rightware Basemark ES 2.0 Taiji benchmark, and it clues us in to a few details surrounding the mysterious budget tablet Google has up their sleeves (and will no doubt use to take over the world).

You can see from the screenshot above the device will have a 1280×768 resolution display, Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core (there were rumblings that it could launch with a dual-core to cut costs) and the kicker (as taken from the raw data found in the benchmark) — Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

“os”:  {

“android”:  {

“model”:  “Nexus  7”,

“hardware”:  “grouper”,

“manufacturer”:  “asus”,

“device”:  “grouper”,

“brand”:  “google”,

“display”:  “XXXXXX-userdebug  4.1  JRN51B  3XXXXX  dev-keys”,

“version_sdk”:  “4.1”,

“board”:  “grouper”,

“version_code”:  “1”

This is assuming that the build number (JRN51B) is code for Jelly Bean, and we’re inclined to believe that it is. It’s going to be an exciting year for Android and we expect to learn a whole lot more about this tablet when it’s unveiled at Google I/O in just a few short weeks. Don’t forget, Phandroid will be reporting live from the entire event bringing you the latest as it breaks. I’m officially hyped. Are you?
