Yesterday, I reported on leaked documents from OfficeMax that foretold of a new Nexus 7 being launched next week. Today, we get to see the new tablet via leaked images that have been posted on AndroidCentral. While we can not confirm these photos, they look very convincing, and someone would have to go through hundreds of hours to create a fake back plate as seen in the photos.

The new Nexus 7 appears to feature the same rounded corners and sleek Nexus-branded plastic back with the iconic Nexus dimpling removed. Based on the specification stickers seen in the images, it appears the device will have upper and lower speakers, a 1.2 megapixel front camera and a five megapixel rear-facing camera.

And as I reported yesterday, it appears that the new Nexus 7 will come in both 16GB and 32GB flavors and will feature a quad-core processor. The 16GB model will be at a price point of $229 while the 32GB version will carry a premium of $30 more at $269. We are expecting to see an official launch next Wednesday during Google's mystery press breakfast.
