Google is going high-PPI with its next Nexus 7 slate. At least, that's the impression one gets from a leaked Best Buy flyer posted by the folks at Phone Arena.
According to the flyer, the successor to Google's 7" Android tablet will still be called the Nexus 7. It will have the same base 16GB storage capacity as the current device, but it will boast a 1920x1200 display resolution—much better than the current 1280x800. Also, Google will apparently jack up the price from $199 to $229.99.
Phone Arena says the flyer will run on July 28. Since the document says, "Available next Tuesday," it follows that the new Nexus 7 will debut on July 30. Unless, you know, the flyer is a total hoax, which is also entirely possible.
In related news, Android Police has posted a whole gallery of next-gen Nexus 7 photos. Assuming the shots are genuine, the device looks a lot like its predecessor, with rounded, tapered edges and a big Nexus logo on the back. However, the back looks completely smooth this time, and the logo has been rotated 90 degrees. Android Police says Asus is making this version of the device, too.
