An Asus-made Nexus 7 running Android 4.3 has been recently spotted in a Bluetooth SIG filing.
Dated May 27, the filing includes some very interesting information. Although the documentation doesn’t specifically say that the device is the Nexus 7, the “7” tablet” described in it features a familiar model number: ME370T.
ME370T is the model number of the first Nexus 7, which definitely is a clue that the rumors could come true and we’ll get to see a new model soon enough (tablet component suppliers confirm a July release date). The Asus device is said to use LTPS panels with 1920 x 1200 resolution, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU.
However, the model number is not the only interesting detail in Asus’s filing, as it also mentions the device running software version number JWR11, which seems to be an Android 4.3 build – it certainly is a new software version not available on other Nexus devices. You may remember that we’ve noticed quite a few Android 4.3 builds not too long ago in our server logs.
This only seems to confirm that, if the Nexus 7 will be made available for you to buy in July, we can expect a June announcement of both the new Nexus 7 and Android 4.3.
Are you a Nexus 7 user? Do you plan on switching to the new version when it will come out?
