2013 Nexus 7 processor update dictated by price

There seems to be plenty of talk in regards to an update for the Nexus 4 and while this would make perfect sense considering the popularity of the LG handset, it’s more likely that we’ll see an updated version of the Nexus 7 first. There have already been several rumors already and the latest, which looks at how the 2013 Nexus 7 update might change to a different processor brand is just another sign that we could hear an announcement at Google I/O.

The 2013 Nexus 7 processor will indeed see a significant increase in performance, which comes as no real surprise, but news that Asus might dump Nvidia’s Tegra and go with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, which is a quad-core chip is. It’s reported that the main reason not to go with the Tegra 4 chip in the updated Nexus 7 is down to price, as Nvidia’s chip is obviously more expensive.

Another reason why this helps to cut down on its price is because Qualcomm is also used for the 3G/4G modem, which has a profound effect on logistics. Whatever happens the Snapdragon S4 Pro is a pretty decent chip and for the most part Qualcomm seem like a very reliable chip.

We would go over some of the spec upgrades expected, but seeing as though we have already covered this it would be far better for you to read our previous article. We will know in May if any of these improvements make their way to the 2013 Nexus 7 update, if there’s a new tablet at all.
