ASUS has announced the availability of the LTE version of the Nexus 7 (2013), the latest 7-inch Android handheld with the tablet screen with 1,920 x 1,200 full HD display resolution and built-in wireless charging.
Retailing at S$529 for the 32GB LTE model, the Nexus 7 (2013) will be available at all three major telecommunication stores, ASUS brand stores and ASUS authorised stores from 19 October. Alternatively, consumers can also purchase the 32GB WiFi model at S$429, which will also be available first on 19 October.
Since the debut of the Nexus 7 in 2012, it has bagged numerous prestigious awards. Built to deliver the best of Google in an incredibly slim package that fits perfectly in the hand, the new Nexus 7 is much thinner, lighter and faster.
The Nexus 7 (2013) is also the latest 7-inch device that spots the sharpest display resolution at 1,920 x 1,200 full HD. Featuring IPS display technology that gives ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angles and packed with more than 2.3 million pixels for a stunning 323ppi (pixels-per-inch), the Nexus 7 (2013) brings your mobile entertainment to vivid life with unparalleled image quality.
Powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon® S4 Pro 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM, the Nexus 7 (2013) allows for smoother performance, as well as more captivating and immersive mobile experience for up to 10 hours of battery life. Mobile data connectivity with 100Mbit/s LTE ensures fast web browsing and downloads.
The Nexus 7 (2013) also comes with scratch-resistant Corning® Glass and a grippy soft-touch exterior that ensures a firm grip of the device, regardless of how you hold it. Measuring at just 8.65mm thick and weighing at just 290g light, the Nexus 7 (2013) is even more portable than a paperback book.
First Device with Android Jelly Bean 4.3
Built in partnership with Google, the Nexus 7 (2013) by ASUS is a fully-fledged Android tablet to be shipped with Android 4.3, the latest version of the world’s most popular mobile operating system. Tablets are perfect for sharing with others and Android 4.3 introduces restricted profiles that allow content restriction.
Nexus 7 (2013) also comes loaded with Google apps — like Chrome, Maps, YouTube, Hangouts and Google Now — that are designed for the cloud, so everything is simple and works seamlessly across multiple devices.
