And while we didn't get a glimpse at the device at the I/O conference as some expected, it appears as though it's still on the way.
According to an unverified report, Asus technical support apparently leaked some details of the new Nexus 7 in a chat with a customer.
NDTV Gadgets said that in the chat it confirmed a new 7-inch device running Android 4.3, with a 1920x1080 pixels screen, a Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB of RAM.
In specs purportedly posted by the impressively/suspiciously hapless employee, the tablet will also have 32GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixels camera and a 1.2-megapixel shooter on the front.
It has been rumoured that the tablet could be released as soon as this month, though we've got nothing solid on those rumours.
Take a look at the chat log posted by the leaker below.
