It might not be the worst kept secret this year, but the new Nexus 7 has been unveiled, bringing an even more portable and comfortable device over the original model.
The bezel has had a few mm taken off it, despite the same sized screen, which makes the device a lot less wide, making it more comfortable to hold it in the hand.
It’s also been made a lot less chubby, with the device as a whole 2mm thinner than the original, as well as being 50g lighter.
The 7-inch display may have remained the same size, but it’s a completely upgraded screen — with a resolution of 1920×1200, meaning that it’s a “true 1080p” device.
With 323ppi, Google claims it is the “world’s highest-resolution 7-inch tablet” with a screen that can manage 30% wider range of colours.
There are two cameras on the device, including a 1.2MP front-facing, whilst a 5MP rear-facing.
As speculated earlier, the processor included is a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 pro, whilst the RAM is set at 2GB — double that of the original Nexus 7.
WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 is built-in as standard, but Google has announced that it is bringing a 4G variant to the US, although there’s no word on UK availability.
Update: UK pricing has been announced as £199.99 for the 16GB WiFi-only model, whilst the 32GB model will cost £239.99. It will launch on September 13, but there still isn’t any word regarding the 4G variant in the UK.
