If the product event that Google scheduled for July 24 wasn’t any indication that we’ll be seeing a new Nexus 7, pictures sent to Engadget by an anonymous tipster suggest that the Nexus 7 will be coming to retail outlets as early as next week, the same week Google’s event will take place.
According to the pictures, the next Nexus 7 iteration will be sold alongside the old model. The photos don’t reveal for how long, but we presume until stock has run out, unless Google plans on selling both, but that’s highly unlikely.
The documents suggest that retailers will have the new device on July 20, but it’s unlikely to be seen on shelves until some official announcement, which makes us think that Google’s event on July 24 is going to be pretty significant for the Android world.
The fact that the new Nexus 7 will be arriving at retail outlets on July 20 certainly isn’t surprising. As you know, retailers usually receive devices well in advance of their release, especially when it’s a popular product. However, the exciting thing here is that the new iteration of the Nexus 7 isn’t that far out, and it isn’t much more expensive than last year’s model, coming in at $269.99, according to the photos.
Pics of the upcoming device were tipped to Android Central, and while the unit we see in stores may be different, it’s still interesting to take a look at what the Nexus 7′s successor might look like.
It goes without saying, July 24 is going to be an exciting day.
