Reddit user purchases a Nexus 7 2 ahead of official announcement from Google


Update: Android Police has also just tweeted an image of the device, with the retail box in the background.

The second generation Nexus 7 has not been Google’s best kept secret by any means, with multiple leaks basically sharing everything there is to know about the device. Now, one lucky Reddit user has supposedly gotten their hands on the device ahead of Google’s expected July 24th unveil. Details are unfortunately very scarce, however, so there’s no way to know where the Reddit user got the tablet from. More than likely, it’s from some sort of brick and mortar store that got shipments in early.

The images show the exact device we saw last week from Android Central. The box design is nearly the same as the original model, with a portion of the tablet being shown to make a “7.”

We’ll be sure to keep an eye on the Reddit thread and update with any additional information…
