New Nexus 7 shown in pics and video

Nexus 7

Here are what looks like the first probable pictures of the successor to the Nexus 7. The pictures show what we have come to expect with regards to rumours and specifications.

We’ve also been able to take a look at some potential pricing of the device, giving us the hope that we may see this successor quite soon. In addition to that, there is also a Google event being live-streamed next Wednesday in San Franciso, where we could be seeing a new Android version, a new Chromebook and hopefully, the Nexus 7 successor!




First, we’ll go through the usual statements. Nothing is official yet, Google have not announced anything concerning the product and there is no indication as to the pictures being a finished product or a prototype. Things can change greatly from the leaks stages to the retail release.


We’re expecting 16 32 gigabyte options, and it’s probably a safe bet to assume we’ll be seeing Wifi-only versions of the tablet, as well as models with cellular data connections.

The specs slapped onto the sticker on the back of the tablet tell us to expect a 7-inch LCD display and a pair of cameras. We’re to expect a 1.2-megapixel camera from LITEONMOBILE on the front of the device, with a 5-megapixel camera by Chicony on the back. The rear camera appears to be in the same corner as the headphone jack.

The motherboards points us to a Qualcomm APQ8064 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor. Whilst this is different to the Snapdragon 600 others have seen, the FCC have already seen a Snapdragon S4 tablet achieve certification.





It seems that we’re also looking at getting 4 gigabytes of DDR3L RAM, however 2GB seems like a more practical choice. As well as this, we’re also expecting the 16 and 32 gigabyte storage options we’ve already mentioned.

Another addition to the tablet, that you can’t see very well in the pictures, is dual speakers. They are referred to in the specs as “upper” and “lower” speakers. They’re positioned on the rear of the tablet, with one near the USB port.

When it comes to software, Android Central were told that it came with Android 4.3, not a surprise with Google potentially launching a new Android version next week.
