Next generation Nexus 7 gets hands-on treatment

Google’s next generation Nexus 7 tablet has been steadily leaking for the past few weeks. First we saw some leaked specifications, followed by some press images. Now, some hands-on images and even a video of the device have surfaced on the internet.

The images above show more of what we have already seen in the press images. The front of the device is more or less similar to the current generation Nexus 7, with the only addition being the LED notification light below the display. The back sees a new design, with a rubberized texture similar to the Nexus 10 and a horizontal Nexus logo, emphasizing that the device is intended to be used in landscape mode unlike the current model. If that doesn’t convince you, even the loudspeakers are placed on the top and bottom edge so they would be on the left and right respectively in landscape mode.

There is now a camera on the back – a 5 megapixel sensor – placed all the way in the left corner. On the right side are the power buttons and the volume rocker. The 3G model has the SIM slot as well, not see on this device. The bottom has the microUSB port.

On the inside, the new Nexus 7 is said to be running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16 and 32GB of storage options.
