Google’s follow-up to the popular Nexus 7 tablet will reportedly debut in May as a cooperative effort with manufacturing partner Asus. Digitimes on Tuesday cites multiple unnamed sources from within Google’s supply chain in claiming that the second-generation Nexus 7 tablet will feature a tweaked design and a full 1080p high-definition display. The bezel around the screen will be narrower as well according to the report, and the tablet will supposedly run an “upgraded Jelly Bean-based Android operating system to enhance integration between the software and the hardware.” According to the site’s sources, combined first- and second-generation Nexus 7 shipments are expected to total 10 million units this year.
