Nexus 7 2nd Gen Leaks; Hints of Android 4.3:
Evleaks, has just tweeted pictures of the new Nexus 7. Considering how reliable they are for leaks, and their previous streak, there is a lot of chance that this really is the real deal, however, until the device is actually announced, for all we know, this might be fake, so take it with a pinch of salt.
The first picture tweeted by them showed the front and back of the new Nexus 7. At a first glance, you notice that they have vertically elongated the device, making it a bit larger than the current Nexus 7, though the displays are the same size.
What makes us believe that it may be running Android 4.3, is that the default wallpaper on it is different than the one on Android 4.2, also, the time on the device is 4:30, and knowing Google, they always have a knack for easter eggs of these kind.
Moving to the hardware, as we said, the screens are of the same size. What is most notable, is that the Nexus 7 now boasts a rear and front camera, the rear being 5 MegaPixels. If you look at the image of the rear of the device, you’ll notice that the back is now smooth and uniform, unlike the ‘bumpy’ design of the current Nexus 7, and the Nexus logo is now placed vertically, along the length of the device. The device also shows a SIM port along the right side, so we can expect a 3G/4G model as well as a WiFi only version. The device will be available in 16/32 GB flavours, according to the source.
You can also see dual speakers on the back, on the top and bottom, as well as an apparent notification light, on the front of the device, below the display. We can also note a proximity sensor next to the camera lens.
Android Police has just released many images of the Nexus 7 as well, showing a completely new wallpaper, pointing to Android 4.3. The Images show the Nexus 7 from all angles, and confirming the rumors.
In terms of hardware specifications, the Nexus 7 is rumored to have a quad-core Qualcomm processor, a 1920 x 1200 7-inch display, 2GB of RAM,
We also have an image of the profile of the device, and it looks similar to the current model, and will have the power button and volume docket along the right side of the device.
The new Nexus 7 is rumored to be announced tomorrow, and released by the end of the month.
