Nexus 7 32GB Model Proves Google had Big Plans for the Tablet
It seems like Google had big plans for Nexus 7, but for some reason they were never put into action. The reason we are saying this is because recently, a customer who ordered a new Nexus 7 received a 32GB version of it. This is quite unusual since Nexus 7 only ships in the 8GB and 16GB internal storage variants.
Nexus 7 32GB Model
The tablet was initially launched back in 2012 and it only shipped in the 8GB and 16GB models. However, it appears like Google had bigger plans for Nexus 7. The Android parent wanted to release a premium 32GB model of Nexus 7 but for some unknown reason, Google decided not to do that. What’s interesting is that Google didn’t state any official statement regarding this premium Nexus 7 model which leads us to believe that Google probably doesn’t want to make a big fuss about it.
Back in 2012, Google teamed up with Asus and designed Nexus 7. This device ended up being one of the most prolific Android tablets ever made since it featured a perfect mix of Asus-made hardware parts and Google’s highly optimized software updates. Although, as time passed on, Nexus 7 faded in the face of other high-end tablets such as Apple’s iPad Pro lineup.
Nonetheless, let’s take a look under the tablet’s hood and see if it’s still worth purchasing one to this day. Nexus 7 ships with a large 7.0-inches LED-backlit IPS LCD panel which offers a pixel resolution of 800 x 1280. Moreover, the panel is coated in Corning Gorilla Glass to make it more durable.
When it comes to power, Nexus 7 boasts with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU. This chipset clocks at 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 and it is paired with an ULP GeForce graphics processing unit alongside 1GB of RAM. Finally, the tablet is available in the 8GB, 16GB and the newly 32GB model.
