In addition to last week’s leaked video of the 2nd generation Nexus 7 (or Nextus 7 if you will), we now have the purported press images to look at too, as well as a picture from a Best Buy flyer setting their release date of the Nexus 7 2, to Tuesday July 30.
(UPDATE: July 24 – Both the new Nexus 7, Android 4.3, and Google Chromecast have now been officially launched by Google.)
The press image below was leaked through the Twitter account of ‘evleaks’.

The only new specs we have seen figures on since last week, are the estimated dimensions of 204.4mm x 115.6mm, and more interestingly, the CPU clock speed is set to 1.5GHz. In the picture you’ll also notice the time is set to 4:30 to indicate the release of Android 4.3. Additionally, compared to the old Nexus 7, it’s been given a new set of speakers, on the back.
The following is the purported Best Buy paper flyer that says the Nexus 7 2 will be sold by them by July 30. Staples have had leaks suggesting a July 31 release. Amazon is yet to leak any details, though we can assume they will start to sell Nexus 7 next week as well.
