Google may soon offer the second-generation Nexus 7 in India, if reports are to be believed. Sources close to TOI Tech revealed that the software giant is all set to announce Nexus 7 (2013) in India next month. Originally, the 7-inch HD tablet was announced on July 26, 2013.

If a report published in the TOI Tech is true, then expect the tablet to be launched in India three months after its global debut. It is also said that Google is currently testing the tablet for Indian consumers. Moreover, Asus won't have much of a role to play when it comes to retailing the device.

Back in August, Peter Chang, Country Manager, Asus India, told The Hindu "The process for the second generation is under control, and, hopefully, by our fourth quarter, we will introduce it to India."
