New Nexus 7 launching on July 30th with Android 4.3 and improved hardware

New Nexus 7

After numerous leaks including one from retailer Best Buy that allowed customers to begin placing orders prior to launch, Google and Asus today unveiled the latest version of their Nexus 7 tablet. Serving as an identically named successor to the device that was released at Google I/O last year, the new Nexus 7 boasts upgraded hardware and the addition of a 5MP rear camera while maintaining the popular form factor of its predecessor. A 7″ 1920 x 1200 IPS display is powered by a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064) clocked at 1.5GHz. Coupled with 2GB of RAM and either 16 or 32GB of internal non-expandable storage depending on your SKU, stark similarities can be seen with the new 7″ tablet and its smaller sibling, the Nexus 4. The tablet is set to hit store shelves next Tuesday, and price points will lie slightly higher than before, starting at $229.99 for 16GB and extending to $269.99 for 32GB.
