If there wasn't enough fanning the Google rumour flames, Android Central posted pictures and video of what it purports to be the likely successor to Google's Nexus 7.
Members of the US-based press received an invitation to a Google event next week, with the only hint about the subject being the name of the host, Sundar Pichai, the head of Android. He took over Android chief Andy Rubin's role when Rubin took on new projects.
Rumours and images were already circulating around a Nexus 7 tablet successor, and the event may be just the way Google decides to unveil it.
The latest images, which have been slightly altered to protect their source, referred to as "Brett", show a device with Nexus emblazoned on the back beneath a spec sticker. However, there's no telling whether this is a prototype, a final product, if the specs are accurate, etc.
Whatever this thing is, it's said to be manufactured by Asus, as the original was. It has two cameras, a Qualcomm APQ8064 motherboard with a Snapdragon S4 pro processor, 4 gigabytes of DDR3L RAM and stereo speakers.
If this turns out to be the heir to Nexus 7's crown, it still looks a little chubby compared with an iPad Mini.
