Google may be preparing to release its second generation Nexus 7 tablet this July to compete with the iPad mini, reports Reuters.

The new tablet is said to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor. Google reportedly wants to sell 8 million units in the second half of the year and is considering a more aggressive price point, perhaps as low as $149.

The latest version will have a higher screen resolution, a thinner bezel design and adopt Qualcomm's chip in place of Nvidia Corp's Tegra 3, which was used in the first Nexus 7s released last year, the sources said, declining to be identified because they are not authorized to speak to the media. In a blow to Nvidia, Google weighed both U.S. chipmakers' processors but finally decided on Qualcomm's for power reasons, one of the sources added.

The Nexus 7 was first introduced last June.
