New Nexus 7 specs leak along with possible release date

An apparent shot of a product information tag has revealed specs for the anticipated second generation of Nexus 7, set to be launched later this month. Unsurprisingly, it is set to come with the same 7-inch screen, but now includes a rear-facing 5MP camera and will ship with Android 4.3.

The leak shows that the product will be powered a 1.5Ghz processor, but enhanced graphics capabilities and a change in screen resolution are still just pure speculation - the shot reveals neither. Wireless charging is a new feature, which originally arrived with the Nexus 4 last year, and a slim port for 1080p output is highlighted as a "key feature."

Engadget also report that a tipster has disclosed the release date for the new iteration. Arriving in stores on July 24, the new Nexus 7 will be available in Staples beginning July 31. It still remains a mystery whether there will be an earlier release for Google Play customers. 

The new device is expected to be revealed at Google's press event next week, which will feature Sundar Pichai, the recently appointed head of Android and Chrome.
