Google sent out invites earlier this week for an event to be held on July 24th and immediately after that, there were so many leaks confirming the existence of a new revamped Nexus 7 tablet. First, there was a leak revealing that the new Nexus 7 tablet may be hitting the shelves as early as next week and shortly after that, a new leaked revealed the prices of the new tablet to be $229 for the 16 GB version and $269 for the 32 GB version. That’s not all, images of the supposed Nexus 7 leaked, showing various new specs and design features that had us convinced that the new Nexus 7 is ripe for the market and we may actually be see it during Google’s event on Wednesday next week.
Today, a new leak confirms that the new Nexus will indeed be coming with a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor and will be running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a version that only a few devices have so far. It would be safe to assume that this is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor since the Snapdragon 600 and 800 have much higher clock speeds than the speed listed on the device. The leak also confirms that the tablet will have a rear 5 megapixels and a front 1.2 megapixels cameras.
The new leak also shows that the new Nexus 7 will have in-built wireless charging capabilities and a slim port that supports a high definition 1080p output of multimedia content. This, however, are some of the features of the 32 GB version, there is no word as to whether the same features will be available on the 16 GB version. It also does not confirm whether the 7 inch screen is actually a full HD display or that the output only is optimized for HD 1080p content streaming.
If you can’t wait to lay your hands on the new nexus 7, it may be available as early as next week. A new tipster claims that Staples will be selling the Nexus 7 starting July 31st but they will be arriving in stores as early as July 24th. It is therefore likely that Google or other retailers may start selling the tablet as early as next week.
We will update you on its availability and specs and new features as soon as we come across them.
