Assuming the rumors are correct, we’re less than a week away from learning about the next-generation of Nexus 7 tablets. Google has scheduled a “breakfast with Sundar Pichai” where it is expected that we see the introduction of the new tablet and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. 

The refreshed Nexus 7 has rumored for months now so we’re glad that this could finally be put to bed next week. Details have slipped through the cracks for some time now, some conflicting with other reports. Things do, however, seem to be coming to a head now. Engadget has obtained a leaked document which spells out the main hardware specs.

The document lists the new Nexus 7 as featuring a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 7-inch display, 1.2MP front-facing camera, and 5MP rear-facing camera. Slated to go on sale at Staples on July 31, the tablet also offers wireless charging as well as a slim port for 1080p video output. All of this is, of course, running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Indeed, this does match up with the recent Android Central report.

It’s still unclear what the resolution is for the 7-inch tablet but rumors suggest something at 1920×1200 may be in order.  Also uncertain is whether that 4GB RAM is legit or not – we think it’s likely 2GB.
