Nexus 7 (2013) gets officially discontinued

By April 28th, 2015 AT 12:36 PM

Google has finally discontinued the popular Asus Nexus 7 (2013) tablet. The tablet had it coming after HTC Nexus 9 became the torch bearer but the fact that it was a hit among the masses ensured that Google didn’t take it off the Play Store. Google has now officially stated that the Nexus 7 (2013) would be going off the retail shelves.


“The Nexus 7 is no longer available for purchase” is what the note from Google says. The tablet still continues to be quite a popular device among the masses owing the value-for-money it offers. The tablet is still available in the country through other retail channels other than the Play Store, but that is probably just the older stock getting cleared.

The Nexus 7 (2013) is still available on Flipkart and other e-commerce portals but it is available at the lowest price on Flipkart. You can get yourselves a 32GB, Wi-Fi only variant of the tablet for Rs 15,999 (original price Rs 23,999) and you can get the 32GB, Wi-Fi+4G LTE variant for Rs 23,799 (original price Rs 27,999). Let us do a quick recap of its specifications:

  • 7-inch display, 1920 x 1080 pixels, ~323 ppi, Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC, 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB non-expandable internal storage
  • 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel front camera
  • 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC (Android Beam)
  • 3,950 mAh battery
  • Black colour only

The tablet continues to be in a league of its own and will probably still get a couple of software updates from Google before it decides to pull the plug on the update support for the same.
