Less than a week ago, a photograph showing the internal sales database for Carphone Warehouse in the UK appeared online featuring a screen protector for the Samsung Nexus 2, and a Nexus 7 variant with 32GB of storage. The Samsung Nexus 2 is still just as much of a mystery as when the photograph first leaked, but the 32GB Nexus 7 has been all but confirmed by making an appearance in the wild.
Japanese Twitter user oppese has taken to the social network to share a picture of a Nexus 7 with 32GB of storage he received by mistake. Apparently, when ordering a Japanese version of the Nexus 7 with 16GB of storage, a 32GB variant was sent instead. On oppese’s Twitter account, pictures of both the 16GB box and the storage screen in the settings menu showing a remaining 27.58GB of storage have been posted.
It is possible that oppese faked the storage information screen, but given the previous Carphone Warehouse leak and just how much sense it makes for Google to carry a Nexus 7 with 32GB of storage, we’re inclined to believe this is real. If that is the case, we expect it to be announced sometime before the end of the month. It would make a great addition to the announcement of the next Nexus device that should be just a couple weeks away now.
