Rumors: Nexus 7, New Android Version Coming Next Week

A new Nexus 7 tablet is on its way to market very soon, if the signs and portents on the Internet are right.

AndroidCentral has posted pictures and video of what could be the new device in the Nexus family. The 7-inch device, which was running Android 4.3, featured a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front and a 5 MP camera in the rear, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. It is not clear whether these images are showing an actual production unit or a prototype.

The tablet will at least have a 32GB versions, and according to Engadget, the retail price for that 32GB model may be $269.99.

The timing on the release of this device, based on Engadget’s sources and an invitation-only Google event in San Francisco on July 24, would seem to point to a release of this device sometime next week.
