Nexus 7 2 Vs IPad Mini What We Can Expect

Though Google has yet to announce the next generation of its Nexus 7 tablet but this believe is becoming stronger and stronger that in few weeks Nexus 7 will be replaced by a new Nexus 7,informally or presumably we can name it as Nexus 7 (2) or Nexus 7 HD.

As every new flagship device has to face rivalries and if the device is real then new Nexus will also have to face strong rivals none other than Apple’s iPad mini. 
Preceding year, Google not only announced but also released its first flagship tablet and named it as Nexus 7 because of its seven inch display. Google presented its first Nexus branded tablet at Google I/O 2012 and after few weeks they released it with Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update.
Nowadays, Nexus 7 is no doubt one of the best tablet that is available in market thanks to its budget friendly price, a quad core Tegra 3 processor with vanilla android. Nexus 7 comes with a plastic design and high end specifications, a 720 pixels display, doesn't feel that device belongs to 200$. Nexus 7 was a great hit of Google in terms of Android tablet.

During the course of 2012, rumors are on floor that Apple is going to build a smaller version of its IPad labelled iPad mini. Apple prove these rumors true and announced its IPad mini and released it in early holidays.Actually, Apple debuted its IPad mini when Google sprang the Nexus 7 to 16 GB and 32 GB from 8 and 16 GB respectively.
Inessential to say, Apple powered its IPad mini with iOS and aluminum design and due to this it becomes the greatest threat to Nexus 7. Up to date both are still the premier model of tablet from their respective companies. 

The battle is still not over because it is expected that both companies will announce their successors and same like 2012 Google seems to be first one to announce its slate, now named as Nexus 7 (2). On the other hand Apple is expected to reveal its new iPad mini in later part of the year, this means current model of iPad mini will likely go against the new Nexus 7.
I already covered what to expect from the rivalry between iPad mini and Nexus 7 (2).Now will take a look what we should not expect from this rivalry.
1: Battle
There is no doubt currently iPad mini is the best 7 inch tablet available in the market but we shouldn't counted out the Nexus 7 (2) because it is expected to come as strong rival against the iPad mini and iPad mini 2. You will believe my words when you consider these facts.      
1: First and the most important rumor spec of Nexus 7 (2) is its 4G LTE connectivity that is something   Nexus 7 missed.
2:  Now come to its screen resolution Nexus 7 (2) is expected to come with a screen display of 1080 Pixels means full HD display, iPad mini doesn't have this kind of display.
3:  It probably will be cheaper than iPad mini because keep in mind track record of Google products, they are always cheap and have high end specs.
4:  Customers waiting for Retina display in iPad mini 2 may not wait until the later part of this year.
5:  Nexus 7 (2) definitely will come with a developed Android Key Lime Pie 5.0. on the other hand iPad   mini might not get the IOS 7 update.

 The Nexus 7 2 will definitely have a spark to compete with iPad min and also iPad mini 2 but Google have to make sure that Device came out without any issue. If this time Asus and Google made device issue free then this time Google tablet will find itself on same level or even better than iPad mini and even possibly better than IPad mini 2. 

2: Wait for iPad Mini 2

In my previous articles I discussed that it is possible that Nexus 7 (2) might come in last week of July but as far as iPad mini 2 release is concerned it seems to be far away and iPad mini 2 will be replaced after some time but not in few weeks.

The hardware device that is now a days a hot topic is release of next generation of iPhone and possibly will be iPhone 5S. Apple’s new software, iOS 7, will be supplemented by new hardware iPhone 5S, not with iPad mini 2. Apple has tradition of having two launch events so that people may not confuse and should not expect iPad mini 2 with iOS 7.
Instead of that rumors suggests that the iPad mini 2 will come in late fall of this year possibly last portion of year same as iPad mini was announced October last year, and was released in November. We can expect same kind of release of Apple iPad mini 2.
Whatsoever the case but buyers have to wait until the September in order to buy iPad mini 2.
3: 64 GB Model
Apple’s 7 inch tablet are currently available with a storage option of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. While on the other side Nexus devices, comes only in 16 and 32 GB storage, Nexus users have to depend on the Cloud storage and flash memory.

Nexus 7 was initially introduced with 8 GB variant but later it was withdrawn. Those who are expecting Nexus 7 (2) with a 64 GB memory variant should have to wait until the release of device.
