The Nexus 7 refers to a line of Android-based tablets produced by Google in collaboration with ASUS. The first generation, released in 2012, featured a 7-inch display, quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, and options for 8GB or 16GB storage. The second generation, released in 2013, had a higher-resolution display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and options for 16GB or 32GB storage. Both models ran on pure Android with timely updates from Google. The Nexus 7 line was discontinued, but its influence persisted in Google’s approach to software updates and design in subsequent devices.
