Nook Tablet 7 is the entry-level device introduced by Barnes & Noble in November 2016.
The new tablet costs only $49.99, and it offers 8 GB internal memory that can be expanded via microSD slot. The display is 1024 × 600 px, with a pixel density of 171 ppi.
The new Nook is powered by 1.3 GHz Quad-Core processor and comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system enhanced with the special interface designed to make buying and managing Nook content easier.
Unlike four previous tablets, the 2016 7-inch Nook was not made in cooperation with Samsung. It affects the availability of cases. Samsung Galaxy Tab devices usually come with a big number of accessories. These accessories were compatible with Nook-branded models.
The 2016 Nook tablet was launched together with two original case designs: the regular folio cover, and the kid-proof case. After a few months, a few third-party case producers released new models that are custom-fit for the 2016 Nook.
It’s good to know that Nook Tablet 7 (2016) has very similar dimensions as Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7 Nook. It means some covers – but only the ones with leather frames or corner straps – can most probably fit the new model.
When you’ll be looking for Nook cases on other sites that Barnes & Noble, please make sure to double-check what’s the model number of the Nook the case is made for. Some online sellers still offer cases for the old Nook 7 model.
The model number of Nook Tablet 7 released in 2016 is BNTV450.
