New Nexus 7 may start at only $229 according to inventory screen


The Nexus 7 tablet is far over a year old, and I don’t think anyone could disagree that it’s time for a new one to be released. The Tegra 3 ages fast. However, we didn’t get any word of a Nexus 7 successor at this year’s Google I/O where the Nexus 7 was announced last year. Google has been tight lipped, and we’ve been left with small rumors here and there to drool over.

The newest info we received was a photo of an inventory screen showing off the name and pricing for the successor of the Nexus 7. They call it the Nexus 2 7″, and while none of the specs are listed here, it is said to be a quad core (which lines up with rumors of a Snapdragon 600 or Snapdragon S4 Pro).


The 16GB model, which will be the base model, will be priced at $229, which is $30 more expensive than the Nexus 7. The 32GB model will be $269, only a $40 price premium. While this is a little more expensive than the budget Nexus 7, it would be worth it if the rumors of a 1080p display are true.

However, we don’t know if this information is real. It is nothing but a photo of an inventory screen on a computer. There was no other information provided. If this is real, then the device must be shipping fairly soon to be put into inventory already. Whatever store this is has none on hand, but just its existence in the computer systems is a good sign. Are you excited for Google’s next 7-inch tablet?

    I think this is still a great deal. I loved the original nexus 7( until it got updated and turned into lag central) but will definitely pick one of these up. This way I will always have the latest from google.

    Definitely worth the slight bump in cost. Count me in.

    Originally for price reasons, I was gonna go for the 16GB for $229. But thinking about the lack of space, and issues I had with lag on the original Nexus due to space, I would just go for the 32GB model. I also hope the lagginess and unresponsive issues are wiped away with the new one. I know everybody didn’t experience them, but I did. I hard reseted/factor reseted mine a few times, issue end up coming back months later. So most of the issues I had were like the ones listed in the article about the Nexus 7 going from best to worst tablet article on this site.

    That will be a great price! Looking to replace a kindle fire hd and that would be a great upgrade.

  • jamal adam

    That’s still a great price. I’m excited to see the successor of my Nexus 7.

  • Ronaldj666

    I think at $229 and $269, is a great deal if the rumored specs are true.

    After seeing how badly the one I gave the kid on Christmas start to lag and have wake issues in a matter of months, I’ve decided I really don’t need one of these just yet. I think I’ll put that dough to a PS4, and review the tablet market in January. Hopefully Google has it right this time.

    I just lost my job and my wife loves my nexus 7. Unfortunately I have no money to get her one. We are Jehovahs Witnesses and we are involved in a Worldwide volunteer Bible preaching work. My wife would use the tablet to prepare for her Sunday Watchtower Bible Studies and for her Bible field service which the Nexus 7 does very well.
