Google is hosting a media event on Wednesday and the refresh of the Nexus 7 is expected to be finally be announced. This will also bring an update to Android OS 4.3 to the masses. A fresh round of convincing specs have surfaced online today and Engadget is reporting that the 7-inch tablet will come with 1.5GHz quad-core processor, wireless charging (possibly via the charging orb), dual cameras with a 5MP back camera and a 1.2MP front-facing camera.
In addition, a leaked pricing doc from earlier this week that suggested the 16GB and 32GB Nexus 7 will hit Google Play and retailers for $229 USD (16GB model), then increasing to $269 USD for the 32GB – we Canadians might also see the usual price jump.
