Google Nexus 7 2.0

The Google Nexus 7 2.0 has cropped up in the Carphone Warehouse UK stock inventory ahead of its expected launch on July 24.

Heavily tipped to launch on Wednesday, the second-generation Nexus 7 has now appeared in the Carphone Warehouse UK inventory prior to its official unveiling by Google.

The leaked inventory screen shot comes via an anonymous source speaking to Pocket-lint and shows both a 16GB and 32GB version of the Nexus 7 2.0.

Both of the models are listed as Wi-Fi only and without a tariffed price, it isn’t known yet whether there will be a 3G option available.

Earlier today, Google Nexus 7 2.0 press shots leaked showing off a very similar design to the current 7-inch tablet, with the second-generation option looking longer and thinner.

Google Nexus 7 2.0 Rumours

The latest rumours suggest the Nexus 7 2.0 will have a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU and a 1,980 x 1,200p HD 7-inch display.

Unlike the original Google Nexus 7, the follow-up will pack a rear-facing camera pegged at 5-megapixels. This will be coupled with a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Keeping in line with the current Nexus 7 price range, the next-generation tablet is said to be launching for somewhere around the $269 or £176 price point. The original 7-inch Google slate can be purchased from £159 on the Google Play Store.

Google is also tipped to unveil Android 4.3 alongside the Nexus 7 2.0 at the event on Wednesday, July 24.

Taking place at the Google Mountain View campus, the event is being held by Sundar Pichai, Google’s Head of Android.

The supposed Google Nexus 7 2.0 and Android 4.3 event will kick off at 9am PST on July 24, which is 5pm UK time.

Want OpenGL ES 3.0 support in the OS.

You need to re write the CPU section Qualcomm chips are much better than the NVIdia equivalents also they have OpenGL 3.0 ES support which the Tegra 4 does not.
Tegra Chips are always a disappointment..
