A couple of days ago we reported that the new Nexus 7 could arrive on Best Buy come 30th of July. The tablet itself has yet to be formally announced and so far it seems that there is at least one person who has managed to buy it already. In any case it seems like the Nexus 7 2 could be one of the worst kept secrets of 2013 because it looks like Best Buy has decided not to wait for Google’s formal announcement and has instead put up pre-order pages for both the 16GB model and the 32GB model. The website has even posted what appears to be official images of the device in all of its entirety, along with a spec list which we’re assuming is the real deal.
According to Best Buy’s website, the Nexus 7 will feature a 7” display with a resolution of 1920×1200. It will also pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 8064 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, Adreno 320 graphics, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 1.2MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB of onboard storage, and will come preinstalled with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The 16GB model is priced at $229.99, while the 32GB model is priced at $269.99. No word on availability but hopefully that will be announced soon.
