Google has announced its press event for next week with Head of Android Sundar Pichai at the hosting helm, but it stopped short on what the company would unveil. Some say it will be the Google Nexus 7 successor, but others say, “Pics or it didn’t happen.”

And so, one blog did just that. Android Central published photos and video of what they claim is the Google Nexus 7 successor. The images, which were slightly altered to protect the identity of their source, show a tablet with Nexus branded at the back just below the spec sticker. We cannot tell whether the so-called Google Nexus 7 successor at the photo is a prototype or the final product, as well as whether the specifications listed are accurate.

But what is very obvious is that the tablet is said to be manufactured by Asus, just like the original Nexus 7. Android Central also claims that the device they have at hand has two cameras (a 5-megapixel Chicony camera at the back; a 1.2-megapixel LITEONMOBILE shooter at the front), Android 4.3, a Qualcomm APQ8064 motherboard, a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 4GB of DDR3L RAM, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro-USB port, and a pair of stereo speakers.

Judging by the photos, the tablet on display, just like the original Nexus 7, seems to be a tad chubbier than the iPad mini.
