Update (July 24, 2013): In the past week, more details of the new Nexus 7 tablet have surfaced. First, we've a set of press shots from @evleaks (who else); then, a leaked Best Buy ad (hat tip to Phone Arena) that suggests that the tablet would come with a 1,920 x 1,200-pixel screen, and would be sold in the U.S. from July 30. And now, according to Android Police, some lucky person has already gotten a unit of it, and has sent in pictures of the device and its packaging as proof. And there's even a video, which we've embedded below.

Come on Google (or ASUS), just make this thing official already.

The new Nexus 7 is almost upon us. (Screenshot from Android Central video.) 

It’s been more than a year since Google unveiled the Nexus 7 tablet, and now, rumors are rife that its successor would arrive come July 24, when Google holds its ‘breakfast’ event in San Francisco. The good folks over at Android Central has even gotten an exclusive first look at the device (not with the blessings of Google, of course), though it's also eager to point out that this may be a prototype, so the specs may not be final.

The above said, this is the closest look we’ve of the new Nexus 7 so far. If nothing’s changed from here on, the new tablet will again be made by ASUS. Screen size remains at 7 inches, but now, in addition to a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, there’s a 5MP camera at the back. Buttons and ports seem to be located at the same places as the existing Nexus 7. Internally, the processor looks to be a Snapdragon S4 Pro, which matches what the FCC says, but different from the Snapdragon 600 in a Bluetooth SIG listing (hey, maybe there are two variants). There’s also 4GB of DDR3L RAM (which seems to be overkill), dual speakers, and it’s running Android 4.3. Two storage capacities (16 and 32GB), a 4,000mAh battery, and support for 4G LTE connectivity are also expected. All in all, a solid upgrade to the Nexus 7, though nothing out of this world. Price-wise, the 16GB version is pegged at US$229, and the 32GB version at US$269.

We embedded the video below, but please head over to Android Central for more details and pictures.
