Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 successor has already been leaked out in full—now we’re getting further confirmation of the tablet’s specs. It sounds like a beast. Google’s diminutive tab will no doubt be the one to beat in the Android space this holiday season. Sorry, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.

According to a spec sheet acquired by Engadget, the device will come equipped with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 7-inch full HD display, 32GB of storage, wireless charging, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.3. A 16GB model is not mentioned, but we did see it show up in a retailer’s inventory recently, so it’s likely Google will push its 32GB iteration over the smaller storage option.

Additionally, Google is adding Slim Port support so users can output 1080p content onto a TV. The screengrab below doesn’t specify a release date, but a tipster claims the device will officially go on sale at Staples on July 31—a week after Google’s scheduled event. Google’s Nexus 7 has already proved to be one of the finer examples of how a small tablet should be built, and it definitely looks like it’ll once again raise the bar for quality.
