Google Nexus 7 2 battery life concerns

There’s a new rumor doing the rounds suggesting that the Google Nexus 7 2 could have made an appearance on the FCC website. While this may not be a surprise to some, we did find it interesting about some of the specs that the sequel could sport, along with its OS as well.

The Nexus 7 2 with Android 4.3 — Like the Moto X, or Google X Phone, we had assumed the Nexus 7 sequel would come with Android 5.0 key Lime Pie, but as we know 4.3 will be the next version, making it obvious that the leaked appearance of the next tablet from ASUS would come with that version of the Android mobile operating system.

So-called Nexus 7 2nd-gen hardware — Looking over these proposed specs, it’s clear that some of them jump out at you, considering they are a vast improvement of the current model, if true of course. These improvements includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 PRO CPU, full 1080p HD screen, the addition of a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and also a smaller capacity 3950 mAh battery, the current model makes use of a 4,325 mAh battery.

The Google Nexus 7 2 battery life is a bit of a concern for us, as it’s not a good sign having a smaller capacity battery. However, the improvements to the software and the newer processor could make the tablet far more efficient, and so a smaller battery may not be that much of a concern.

Nexus 7 second-gen release date — Google and ASUS have yet to make any formal announcement as to the existence of a sequel, but we expect to hear from them very shortly, as we believe the new tablet will be released in July, which would make it a year after the current model was released. Having said that, we did report on a so-called Nexus 7 sequel release date and price last week, but as ever, we were a little skeptical.

Yes there are some serious conserns about the N7 battery. Stories are all over the web. Battery stays long on 100% and dies when in the 20’s or 30’s. Most believe it is software problems,and Google’s arrogance not to bring a fix.

Maybe you should wait until it is released and you have tried it before worrying about this.
