What Will Google Show Next Week?

Rumored specs for the coming version of the Nexus 7 include a 7-inch LCD display, Qualcomm APQ8064 motherboard with a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 4 GB of RAM, and either 16 or 32 GB of storage. These are only the specs for one version, however, and there is likely another since the model number shown in the pictures says "SKU2."
 



Once Google invited members of the press to a potential Android launch event for next Wednesday, new Android 4.3 and Nexus 7 leaks began to come out.

Even though the launch is likely just a week away, there is already solid information coming out regarding what Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will offer. Most of the features were leaked after a Google employee sold a secondhand Nexus 4 smartphone that had the new OS on it.

Along with the Android 4.3 leaks, there have also been new pictures of the Nexus 7 tablet with new specs, as well as letting us know that the new version of the tablet will be running Android 4.3.

Nexus 7

It became apparent a new Nexus 7 was on the way last week, when retailers began to lower the price of the current version of the tablet. The most recent rumors put the Nexus 7 launching by the end of the month in Taiwan, making its way to Western markets shortly afterward.

When it comes to the specs and features of the Nexus 7, there is a chance that Google could reveal all of that during the Android 4.3 event next week, but until then there are already some relatively trustworthy leaks to guide us.

The pictures and video of the potential Nexus 7 are all of a device manufactured by Asus. The tablet is likely to come in 16 GB and 32 GB versions as well as be separated into Wi-Fi and cellular options.

Rumored specs for this version of the Nexus 7 include a 7-inch LCD display, Qualcomm APQ8064 motherboard with a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 4 GB of RAM, and either 16 or 32 GB of storage. These are only the specs for one version, however, and there is likely another since the model number shown in the pictures says "SKU2." The front camera is 1.2 megapixels and the main camera is 5 megapixels.

Current reports place the 16 GB model at $229.99 and the 32 GB Nexus 7 at $269.99. Without any announcements from Google we have no way of verifying what the price will be, but based off of the previous Nexus 7 launch price, those reports are likely accurate.

Android 4.3

The other big announcement which is most likely to come out of the press event next week is an Android 4.3 reveal. From everything we know so far, Android 4.3 will be a very small update to the previous version and will only add a couple of new, yet beneficial features.

One of the few big changes in Android 4.3 is seen with the dialer, which will now pull up contacts as you begin typing in a number. An updated camera application which has already been included on Google Play editions of the HTC One will also make an appearance in Android 4.3. Support for Bluetooth Low Energy will also be added in with the update.
