New Google Nexus 7 Release Date for Japan Leaked; LTE variant also incoming

If the first Google Nexus 7 was released in Japan by Asus quite late comparing with other market events, it seems that the same will not be applied for the 2013 edition of the tablet. Apparently and according to the latest rumors (which will probably turn out to be true) the New Nexus 7 will arrive in Japan this month, while a LTE variant of the same device is being prepared for a September launch. These are good news for those who are looking into buying an affordable Android 4.3 based tablet with decent to high end specs and performances, though some might say that the New Google Nexus 7 price tag is not that affordable as previously announced.

The 2013 version of the Asus Nexus 7 comes with a similar design that has been spotted on the first model of the tablet. But leaving aside the looks, we must mention the specs and features list. On this side, Google and Asus equipped the New Nexus 7 with a 7.0 inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display, 16 / 32 GB of internal storage depending on your choice, 2 GB of RAM, a 5 MP camera on the back along with a 1.2 MP front facing one, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board and a powerful and fast quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4Pro processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. These are some impressive performances for a Google branded tablet, so keep them in mind when checking the price tag.

As already stated, Asus is prepared to release the New Google Nexus 7 in Japan. The release date is in just few days, as August 28 is the tagged date. Furthermore, a LTE variant of the handset will also be launched in Japan, but only in September. The device will cost you 27,800 yen (which is somewhere $282) with the 16GB of storage variant, while for the 32 GB model you will have to give no more than 33,800 yen, which makes the Nexus 7 worth $344.

That was all for now; don’t forget that in UK the New Nexus 7 will arrive on the same date – August 28. Anyway, stay close for further news as we are coming with fresh info as soon as something important is being revealed.
