In just a few minutes the Sundar Pichai Nexus 7 and Android 4.3 launch event will occur, but before we reveal all the juicy details we have a final few last minute bits of intel to report. The guys over at AndroidPolice are on a roll. They have some exclusive specs and benchmarks for the device. Here's a quick quote with a breakdown of what they shared,

1920x1200 screen (reported as 1200x1824 because of the on-screen nav bar) That should look great on a 7-inch device it works out to 320 PPI. Inside is a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core clocked at 1.5GHz. If that sounds familiar, it's probably because that's exactly what the Nexus 4 runs. Something else the new N7 and N4 have in common is RAM. Yes, the rumors were off in this case. The new Nexus 7 has 2GB of RAM.

Update: We've confirmed that NFC is present.
They also have some benchmarks of the new Nexus 7. Here's another quote with their benchmark numbers,

Where does the new Nexus 7 fall? Right about where you'd expect at about 19,000-20,000. Just a little better than the Nexus 4. The floating point calculations are a bit diminished on the Nexus 7 compared devices with newer chips, but that's not really going to affect your life.
Quadrant is similar to AnTuTu it checks CPU, I/O, and 3D graphics. It's a bit more outdated than other apps, but the numbers still provide some interesting comparisons. This test was unkind to the Snapdragon S4 Pro in the Nexus 4, but does the N7 fare any better? The Nexus 4 gets about 4,200 in this test, while the HTC One hits 11,000 (likely a throttling issue with the Nexus 4 in this particular test). The New N7 pulled in about 5500, as you can see below. So still a strangely low score on this test. More reinforcement that this is going to be kind of like a bigger Nexus 4.

3DMark is still fairly new to Android. This graphics benchmark aims to see how many pixels a device can push and how fast. This affects gaming of course, but also has a lot to do with the smoothness of the UI. 3DMark renders an OpenGL ES2.0 action sequence at 720p and 1080p we ran the 1080p "extreme" version on the Nexus 7. The updated N7 clocks in at 7,188 and manages to keep frames per second at nearly 30, with occasional jumps higher. That compares to the Nexus 4 at roughly 6,300. The HTC One only does slightly better. That shouldn't be too surprising as both the Snapdragon 600 and the S4 Pro run the Adreno 320 GPU. Last year's Nexus 7 could only pull in 1,877 on the 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme test.
Very soon we will bring you guys the full official details from Google, so stay tuned!
