Benchmark Reveals Upcoming 7-Inch Asus-Made Google Nexus Tablet Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?


A Google Nexus tablet was the subject of many rumors, some of them recent, some of them rather old, but the consensus seems to be on the spot regarding the OEM: Asus. An Asus-made tablet has popped up in benchmark wearing the codename “Grouper” and the model number “Nexus 7”.

Recent rumors talked about a possible June release but the benchmark sheds some more light on the matter. First of all, the “Nexus 7” moniker could very well indicate a seven-inch form factor, as rumored, something which is also backed up by the resolution listed: 768×1280 (which also seems to indicate a possible portrait-like form factor a la iPad).

The more important bit is the one concerning the platform. It seems to run Android 4.1 build JRN51B; the J probably stands for Jelly Bean, as in the next version of Android and from the looks of it it will not be Android 5.0 but Android 4.1.

As far as specs are concerned, there seems to be an nVidia SoC listed: quad-core Tegra 3 clocking at 1.3GHz. Of course, the information listed could very well be emulated or faked but just in case this is the real deal, we though you need to know about it.
