The Federal Communication Commission does their job in regulating various devices, but they're also always good for an early leak or two. This time around, ASUS has filed a new entry with the FCC, a tablet with an ID of MSQK009.
Although the K009 codename is far from the original Nexus 7's model number (ME370T), all indicators point to the device being the successor to Google's popular tablet. In any case, specs include a 7" display with a full-HD resolution and up to 32GB of onboard storage. Interestingly, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro resides on the inside, which is a departure from the Tegra 3 which was found on the original Nexus 7.
Otherwise, the device also comes with 2GB of RAM, optional 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and support for wireless charging. Android 4.3 had previously been rumored to be coming with the tablet, and while there is no mention in the filing, Google could possibly unveil both tablet and software in one go.
