The follow-up to the Google Nexus 7 finally shows up in a short preview video. Google has a scheduled event next week in San Francisco and it’s likely that they will unveil this device there. Check it out after the break.
The video doesn’t really reveal anything regarding the specs or the UI of Android 4.3 but it does give us an idea on how it will look like. The textured back is a no show but we’re not sure if it will be the same as the launch device as this might be an engineering unit.
According to Android Central, the next Nexus 7 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and possibly 4GB of RAM though I believe that it’s too much and it’s hard to offer that for a low price. Previous leaks said that it will come with Snapdragon 600 CPU so it’s not clear yet. There will also be a 5-megapixel rear and 1.2-megapixel front camera. There is no mention of screen resolution, but other leaks have said that it will be Full HD (1920×1200). It will retain the 7-inches display instead of competiting with the iPad Mini.
The new Nexus 7 2013 (
no official name yet now official) will come in 16GB and 32GB variants just like its predecessor. The price is expected to start at $229 for the 16GB and $269 for the 32GB version.
All the details provided are all unconfirmed at this point so it’s best to wait for Google’s official announcement on July 24.
