We already have a pretty decent idea of when Google will launch its Nexus 7 refresh, and now we’re getting a look a glimpse at what the device might cost. Unfortunately, it looks like prices are about to go up, though that might be a direct result of better components included in the device itself, which we’ve been hearing will be a Snapdragon 600 processor and a possible 1080p display.
According to the leaked inventory screenshot, Google’s Nexus 2 (7-inch) will start at $229 for the 16GB model, while the 32GB model will run for $269. Still competitively priced, especially when you factor in the rumored specs. But that initial raise might shock people who were expecting Google to keep cost the same.
It’s unclear what retailer this inventory belongs to, though it does suggest we’ll see new models very soon. Google has an event planned for July 24 in San Francisco, where we’re expecting Sundar Pichai, senior vice president for Android, to reveal some new Android features alongside fresh Nexus devices. And suddenly everything is falling into place.
