Stay tuned for our coverage of Google's July 24 event
Google has sent out press invites for a ‘breakfast with Sundar Pichai,’ the head of Android that replaced Andy Rubin, and all expectations are for an official appearance of the second-generation Nexus 7.

The new 7-inch tablet by Google and Asus is not much of a mystery now. 

We've seen leaks from all over the place and good news is the tablet will come with an extremely sharp 1920 x 1200 pixel display. The new Nexus 7 storage capacity will start from 16GB and prices will range from $229 for that basic model.

Google’s event detailing all about the new Nexus 7 is scheduled for Wednesday, July 24th, and it kicks off at 9am PT | 12pm EST.

Google will livestream the event on its YouTube channel and we’ll cover it all live so make sure to stay tuned.

Hopefully the SoC will be the Snapdragon 600 (though I can imagine the WiFi version sporting the S4 Pro and the later released LTE variant having the SD600) and screen size will be a little closer to 8", the ideal tablet size.

I hope it is the Snapdragon 600. The higher clock speed really is needed for such a high resolution display, the Xperia Tablet Z has the same resolution and definitely has some lag with the S4 Pro. Though, Android 4.3 brings noticeable performance improvements from what I've read, and I'm sure most of the lag found on the Xperia Tablet Z is from Sony's custom UI, but the S600 would just bring some extra room for that high resolution to work on, you know?

The Droid DNA has no lag with a 1080 screen & the Snapdragon Pro. Considering the lack of a skin & the price tag, I think it is way more likely that this will use the Pro.

I guess Sony's skin is just a little too much for the S4 Pro to handle. The new Nexus 7 will probably fly with the S4 Pro running stock Android 4.3, but I guess I'm just being pessimistic. Even if it does stutter a little, the price tag certainly justifies it.

I completely agree.

If he screen size is identical, based on the @poke4christ comparison with the two press images put next to each other, dimensions are 205 mm x 117 mm x 82 mm, slightly taller but much thinner profile. The press image shows a 16:10 screen, so it's definitely gonna be the cool 1920x1200 resolution. http://cdn02.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/new-nexus-7-vs-nexus-7-comparison.jpghttp://cdn02.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/new-nexus-7-leak-evleaks-2.jpg

I would definitely like to have the new Nexus 7. Though I would probably get a case for it since the sideways Nexus logo is just odd to me.

I don't belive you. No, really, the Nexus 7 does not _need_ an 800. A 600/S4 Pro will run things perfectly well.

roldefol is right. They already upgraded the screen resolution, added a back cam, doubled the storage, & doubled the RAM for only $30 more than the original price tag of the original Nexus 7. No chance this device has a Snap 800. More than likely, it won't even have a Snap 600. They'll be losing money on every device if that's the case. My guess is Snap Pro or 400.
