It’s now been more than a year since the Nexus 7 was launched on the market and some are already looking to get their hands on the next model. We don’t yet how it will be called, but Nexus 7 2 sounds really bad, so maybe Google will use Apple’s tactic here and just call it “the new Nexus 7“. Whatever the name will be, we seem to have some leaked pictures and a video of what appears to be the new Nexus 7.
The leaks also involve the pricing of the new Nexus 7 and given the fact that we’re nearing Google’s event on July 24, this makes the new information seem pretty legit. Google didn’t announce the successor to the Nexus 7 at its annual I/O conference, therefore we have all the reasons to assume they will do so on the upcoming event, called ”breakfast with Sundar Pichai“. If you don’t know, Sundar Pichai now oversees Android’s development after Andy Rubin’s leave. A new Android version might be unveiled, as well; and, who knows, maybe the Moto X?


Possible pricing and specs for the new Nexus 7

Just like the first Nexus 7, the new model also seems to be manufactured by Asus, despite of various rumors on this matter that suggested Google might side with a different OEM. WiFi-only versions will definitely be cheaper, but most of us will obviously look for the models with cellular data connections, because, how else to enjoy Internet on-the-go, right?
According to a leaked inventory screen, also obtained by AndroidCentral, the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 will be priced at $229 and the 32GB version at $269. We don’t have yet details on what models these are, but let’s hope they will also come with 4G, or at least 3G. And the prices are actually quite good, if you consider the leaked specs:
  • 7-inch LCD display with 1080p
  • 1.2-megapixel LITEONMOBILE shooter on the front; 5-megapixel camera by Chicony
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
  • 4 gigabytes of DDR3L RAM
  • Android 4.3
Engadget was also tipped off and it seem that retailers like OfficeMax will start getting the renewed Nexus 7 version from July 20, which is so close. Perhaps we’ll see some more leaks, as that happens. Until then, I will leave you with the leaked video, as promised, of what seems to be Nexus 7′s successor.
