New Nexus 7 press shots leak, confirm Android 4.3

0. phoneArena 21 Jul 2013, 19:48 posted on

It seems basically little more than a formality at this point for Google to officially unveil the new Nexus 7 (which is almost definitely happening on Wednesday). We've seen plenty of leaked pics/video, specs, and even potential release dates for the device. Now, we're getting leaked press shots of the device...

Looks like the rumors of a smaller bezel are not true.

I think Google/ASUS should of increased the screen to 8" and used a design similar to the Nexus 10, except portrait with smallish side bezels like the iPad Mini.

I know the rumors for the resolution are in the neighborhood of 1920x1200 or 1920x1080. Do we have solid confirmation yet? I'm not interested if the resolution is the same since I already have the original.
I'm actually more inclined to say that this 7" model will be a mild spec bump with the same resolution and Google will surprise everyone with a 1080p 8" model; Nexus 8. These leaks are just to throw the scent off.

Forget the non-sense I just spewed out. The leaked bestbuy ad confirms a 1920x1200 display.
Wonder if I should put my current Nexus 7 on Craigslist? Only paid $120 for it. Or should I make it a Christmas/birthday gift?

I'm fairly excited to see what the specs are on this N7. Maybe S600?

Device time = 4:30, meaning Android 4.3... so, what if they made a version 4.6x?

I never understood why none of the manufacturers put the front facing camera in the center... for both phones and tablets. The only exception I know of is the iPhone 5.

I mean, if you're doing video chatting or self-portraits, it's really annoying to have your face on the corner of the frame and constantly positioning your hand or your face awkwardly...

I think Asus should add Memory Card Slot in new Nexus 7. So many people will totally buy this gorgeous tablet.

Gorgeous? That thing is a black slab of drab plastic with huge bezels. If it's anything like its predecessor, you will have buyer's remorse within a few months. You must have lowered expectations since it says "Nexus" on the back (In the wrong orientation).

OG Nexus 7 owner who's still in love with their tablet. Storage isn't an issue considering I have 52GB on Dropbox thanks to Samsung and up to 20,000 songs with Google Play, so what's a con you could think of? Oh and btw, the bezels are fine. No need to exaggerate on how "big" they are.

He is just a clueless Apple fanboy, much like yourself. Or are you a Nokia sieve. I forget, there are too many not you these days. :)

Google followed the iPad on the speakers below, and I think the vertical Nexus sign is odd, but the font looks good though. The front facing camera is not in the middle, WHAT THE HELL?!

ugly design

would be a nice tablet if they would trim the bezel on the top and bottom, or at least stuff some speakers there.

That massive top and bottom bezel are beyond ugly.
