Images and a spec sheet for the long-rumored Google Nexus 7 tablet have leaked just days ahead of its supposed unveiling.
The tablet, which is expected to be officially announced at Google’s I/O conference this week, has been ousted by the folks over at Gizmodo Australia. The leaks suggest that the 7-inch tablet will be called the “Nexus 7”.
Also revealed was that the ASUS-built tablet will feature a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, GeForce 12-core CPU, and 1GB of RAM. It will also come with two storage models: 8GB or 16GB. The Nexus 7 will also sport a 7-inch IPS display with a 178-degree viewing angle, with a resolution of 1280 by 800.
The document also said that the Nexus 7 will be the first device to run the next version of the Android mobile operating system, Jelly Bean. Past leaks and rumors have suggested the Jelly Bean will be Android version 4.1 and not 5.0.
Other features for the tablet include NFC, Google Wallet, Android Beam, a 1.2MP front-facing camera, and a battery which promises up to 9 hours of usage.
Price-wise, the Google Nexus 7 tablet is looking to take over the budget tablet market, currently controlled by the Amazon Kindle Fire, with its $199 price tag for the 8GB model and $249 tag for the 16GB model.
