Press Render of the 2nd Generation Nexus 7 Leaks

July 21, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

This has been one of the busiest weekends in recent memory for us here at Android Headlines. We’ve been seeing leak after rumor, after report. This time we’re shifting our focus over to the tablet side and away from the phones and the Moto X. This time it’s the Nexus 7, which we are all expecting Google to show off next week at their event in San Francisco. We’ve already seen the Nexus 7 leaked several times, and the leaks looked relatively the same to this one. But I’ve got to say the press render here is looking mighty good.

The Nexus 7 is slated to go on sale at the end of this month. It’ll more than likely be on sale at Google Play, Staples, Office Max, and just about every other place that had the original Nexus 7. As far as specs go, nothing is confirmed by the way, we’re looking at a quad-core Snapdragon 600 (possibly), 7-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM (some leaks say 4GB but I highly doubt it) along with a 5MP shooter on the back and a 1.2MP on the front. There also appears to be a speaker at the top on the back of the device. I’d still prefer to have the speaker on the front like the Nexus 10 and HTC One.

There is also some rumors floating around that this Nexus 7 will be a bit more expensive. It’ll be $229 instead of the $199 price tag we saw last year. We’re looking at a 16GB and 32GB version out of the gate as well. What we are waiting on is to see if we’ll get an LTE Nexus 7. Because of proprietary software, LTE isn’t in AOSP. This was the case with the CDMA Galaxy Nexus’ and the reason why the Nexus 4 did not have LTE. Hopefully all of our questions will be answered on Wednesday.
