Google Nexus 7 Image Leaks Ahead of Launch

An image of what purportedly is the Google Nexus 7 has leaked ahead of its anticipated launch at Google I/O 2012.


This Nexus 7 banner was found within Google Play and it depicts an Asus-made device that seems to be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The photo was first discovered by Android Police.

Google is expected to announce the Nexus 7 today at its Google I/O 2012 keynote.

The image here is directly from Google’s servers so it’s safe to assume that this is the Nexus 7 tablet that will not only be announced today at Google I/O but will be given away to those in attendance.

It looks a lot like the mockups that we saw leak last week and it also is sporting the Nexus 7 name that we have heard about for quite some time now.

From what we can see from the image, the Google Nexus 7 sports a front facing camera, both Nexus and Asus branding, what appears to be a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom, and a microUSB slot in the middle bottom.

It also appears to have tapered edges and a power button and volume rockers on the side.

It also appears to be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the operating system that Google will likely be announcing at this year’s Google I/O alongside the Nexus 7. It apparently sports room for a total of six apps and not the four that we are used to seeing with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.


The device is also supposed to feature a white variant, a 7″ display that packs 1280 x 800 display, 8GB or 16GB of storage space, and a $199 price tag.
