The new 32GB Nexus 7, rumored to be replacing Google’s current 16GB Nexus 7, has seen its pricing revealed today and it appears that Google will keep the 32GB Nexus 7 price the same as the older 16GB Nexus 7.
Android and Me unearthed a piece of evidence in a shelf tag that shows off what appears to be the finalizing pricing of the 32GB Nexus 7, a device that Google has yet to announce.
The photo reveals a retail price of £199.99 for the Nexus 7 32GB in the United Kingdom. This is the same price that Google sold the Nexus 7 16GB in the UK and should mean that Google will offer the 32GB model for the same price as the 16GB model in the United States as well.
Currently, the 16GB Nexus 7 retails for $249.99 through the Google Play Store which means that the Nexus 7 32GB will likely cost the same when and if it arrives in the coming weeks.
The slip also confirms that the device will still have a Tegra 3 quad-core processor but no other specifications of the device are revealed. We imagine they will mirror the previous version of the Nexus 7. Also of note is the Ice Cream Sandwich logo where the Jelly Bean logo should be. At this point, we’ll just assume it’s a mistake from a retailer.
Google is also rumored to be releasing a $99 entry Nexus 7 device. That rumor was denied by Asus but it’s still entirely possible that Google will unleash the $99 Nexus 7 as well as this new 32GB Nexus 7 tablet sometime later this year, perhaps on October 29th, the rumored launch date for the new Nexus phone.
The new Nexus phone is thought to be the LG Nexus 4, a device which sports a 4.7-inch HD display, quad-core processor, two cameras, Jelly Bean or higher and a launch date of October 29th.
October 29th is the start of the All Things D: Dive Into Mobile conference, a conference that Andy Rubin, Google’s Android chief, will be speaking at. It’s the same conference where Rubin announced the Motorola Xoom and Android 3.0 back in 2010 and it could be that he announces these two Nexus 7 devices there, along with the new Nexus smartphone.
