New Nexus 7 Appears Early On Best Buy

Written by Andrew Moynihan on Wed, Jul 24, 2013 5:39 PM

In one of the biggest non-shocks in recent memory, Google’s debut tablet, the Nexus 7, is set to get its latest iteration announced today.

A leaked update on BestBuy has shown the world the specs of the tablet, just hours before it was set to be unveiled at Google’s event.

The tablet popped up on the BestBuy website earlier this morning in two different flavours, the now familiar 16GB and 32GB variations. They are set to retail for £169.99 and £199.99 respectively, in a continuation of last year’s hugely successful launch. As expected, they come in with a bit more firepower under the hood; the new SnapDragon S4 Pro processor clocks in at an impressive 1.5Ghz, backed up with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, double the amount of its predecessor.

The Nexus 7’s already impressive screen is on the receiving end of a serious upgrade, with the new full HD screen outputting at a cracking 1920x1200 resolution. This puts it in the same ballpark as the Nexus 10’s screen. It will also come pre-installed with the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software, which promises increased WiFi connectivity for those summer afternoons in the garden, alongside much faster GPU rendering while simultaneously reducing the strain on the battery.

The new Nexus 7 is once again crafted by ASUS, and should be available to purchase sometime between the 30th July through to the 4th August.

Have you guys been waiting for this re-release before you pick one up? Or are tablets not your thing? Tell us below!

The Nexus 7 is great, and this will be even better! That is a great price, too bad I can't afford it though
