Nexus 7 Estimated Battery Life Bumped From 8 Hours To 10 With Arrival Of Android 4.2.2
The Android-based Nexus devices have been in all kinds of news for the past few months with the devices' popularity keeping pace with the news. Now the Nexus 7 has come into a special spotlight for something quite out of the ordinary.
Per reports, Google has just updated the product page for every Nexus 7 model on the Play Store, and even on its official Web site, with a bumped of battery specification. Apparently, the Nexus 7 page now states that the device currently supports 10 hours of life instead of eight.
Amazingly, this has also been done keeping in mind the time of the release of the latest Android refresh that is Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
"We've been digging for new features and changes in Android 4.2.2, but we've yet to see anything specific about improved battery life. The timing is undoubtedly odd, though. With that in mind, to those of you with Nexus 7's on Android 4.2.2: keep an eye on your battery life over the coming days. It may be better," Android Police writes.
At the same time users shouldn't be surprised to see Google trying to improve battery life of the device, owing to the fact that this one seems to be one of the concerns that actually needed to be addressed in future devices.
That Google has to improve the battery life of its upcoming brand of smartphones and tablets was actually revealed by Google's CEO Larry Page last month while discussing about the numbers related to quarterly financial reports.
Although Page was actually making a statement about Motorola devices, it could be assumed that the same changes would also happen to all Nexus devices, as they are also a part of the company.
"I am excited about the business. In today's multi screen world, the opportunities are endless. Think about your device. Battery life is a huge issue. You shouldn't have to worry about constantly recharging your phone. When you drop your phone, it shouldn't go splat. Everything should be a ton faster and easier. There's real potential to invent new and better experiences," Page stated.
