Perennial leakers EvLeaks have got their hands on a leaked press shot of the tablet, seemingly confirming that the Google/ASUS partnership has delivered a device that looks incredibly similar to its predessecor.
Speakers sit at the top and bottom of the device, with the headphone jack sat also along the top. Both front and rear cameras feature, with the Nexus logo sitting around halfway down the back, with an embossed ASUS logo at the bottom.
In terms of specifications, previous leaks have said to expect a full HD 1080p resolution screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of DDR3L RAM, a Slim Port for 1080p video playback over HDMI, and wireless charging. Android 4.3 looks set to be the operating system of choice, which is expected to be announced alongside the new tablet. Both 16 and 32GB variants will be available, with a leaked BestBuy advert stating the tablets will start at $229.99 and become available from Tuesday 30 July.
Google have a press event lined up for 24 July. Expect to hear more then.
