Leaked images suggest that a new Nexus 7 will be hitting shelves next week for $269. While that price is for the 32GB model, it still is a $20 premium over the current model.Thanks to the leak, we now have a better idea of what that extra twenty spot will get you. According to the pic, there’s a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU tagging alongside the unannounced Android 4.3 as the OS of choice. The device is still sporting the same 7-inch display, but we may see an improvement on the resolution this time around. Users can look forward to a 1.2MP up front shooter and 5MP for the back. Surprisingly, there is the addition of Slim Port support for playing 1080p video on your TV, in addition to wireless charging. And let’s be honest, who can complain about wireless charging?


According to another eager tipster the Nexus 7 will officially hit Staples shelves on July 31st. As you can see in the memo shown below the tablets are expected to arrive in stores as early as the 24th, but they won’t hit the floor until the last day of the month.
