Google officially introduced the Nexus 7 2013 in late July and even though the new 7-inch tablet is already available for purchase in US, the Europeans didn’t get the opportunity to get their hands on it yet. It seems though that the Nexus 7 2013 will hit the UK market as of August 28.
After the guys at Pocket-lint got in touch with ASUS, they reported that the Nexus 7 2013 release date in UK have been set for August 28, with some starting to sell the new tablet ”at midnight on the 27th – ie, the morning of August 28.”
Of course, the New Nexus 7 will be available for purchase in Google Play Store, as well, but many British retailers will also have the tablet on their shelves, some of them already accepting pre-orders for it.
The same source writes that the 16GB Nexus 7 2013 will have a price tag of £199.99, while the 32 GB model will be £40 more, priced £239.99. As you probably guessed, we are talking about the WiFi-only variants of the tablet, as there’s no mentioning about the Nexus 7 2013 LTE release date for UK. Actually, there’s no mention about Nexus 7 2013 LTE release date in US, either.
Because it would be a shame to talk about the New Nexus 7 availability in UK and not to mention anything about its technical specifications, learn that the new tablet co-developed by Google and ASUS packs an impressive 7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 323 ppi, the highest ever met on a tablet.
The Nexus 7 2013 is underpinned by the popular Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset based on four Krait cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and sporting an Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The tablet also comes with 16/32 GB of internal storage, while featuring a non-removable Li-Ion 3950 mAh battery and measuring 200 x 114 x 8.7 mm.
In terms of connectivity, the New Nexus 7 packs HSPA+, LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, NFC chip, and microUSB 2.0.
Unlike its predecessor, the Nexus 7 2013 comes with a rear-mounted 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, and 1080p@30fps video recording support. In the front there’s a 1.2 megapixel camera which would make a perfect tool for video calls.
