According to a new report out of Digitimes, Google and ASUS are teaming up for a second-generation Nexus 7 to be announced in May, likely at Google’s I/O developer conference. Engineering samples have supposedly already been making the rounds, revealing a device with a 1080p Full HD display, an “industrial design,” and thinner bezel around the screen.
The new model follows what has been a somewhat surprising success for the company behind Android. The original Nexus 7 is projected to move past the 6 million sold mark this month, while sales of both the first-gen and second-ten versions of the device are calculated to reach 10 million in 2013.
The retooled Nexus 7 is said to run the latest version of Android Jelly Bean, an element that will likely change based on Google traditionally unveiling a new version of their OS each spring. This year’s Google I/O will take place May 15th through 17th.
