Second-generation Nexus 7 press images surface

Second-generation Nexus 7 press images surface
Just yesterday, we got to see the first press renders of the second-generation Nexus 7 tablet coming with an extremely sharp 1920 x 1200-pixel 7-inch display. We also heard about its affordable prices, starting from $229 for the basic model. Now, the full set of press images has leaked out and you can take a look at the new Nexus 7 in its full glory.

The tablet has become narrower, but longer on the y axis, compared to its predecessor. On the back, the Nexus logo has turned larger and vertical. A rear camera (allegedly, a 5-megapixel one) has appeared. On the front, a notification LED light surfaces. There are changes under the hood with Google and Asus now going for a Qualcomm chip instead of the Tegra used in the first-gen Nexus 7.

Good news is that all those rumors will be coming to an end on Wednesday, July 24th when Google is expected to officially unveil the second Nexus 7. Stay tuned for our coverage of the event.

Number 6 has the sim slot indicating the presence of a 3G, number 9 doesn't indicating that its a wifi only version.

It's a beautiful tablet in 2012. But it's 2013 that bezel doesn't look good anymore.

wow and the bezel is starting to look bigger than the screen itself. if the screen is 7" then that means the tablet will be about 10-12" including the bezel. sad day for nexus tablets. i'll stick with my old one.

Bezel with 1/4" of two sides and 3/4" of top and bottom is perfect, for me!

Nice, a lot of bezel for wider and thick hands.

Apple is still trying to figure out how to sale a retina mini without damaging the 9.7" iPad any further. Don't be surprised if a retina iPad mini cost more than the current mini whenever it's released.

I think the October date is a typo considering everyone says it's supposed to launch July 31st.

Big bezel top and bottom? Slim and thin? Looks like a 7 inch Xperia zu for me :)

Looks like a SIM/SD card slot in #6. Probably SIM, because Google isn't known for their SD cards anymore.
