We knew that Google I/O was going to be concentrated on development, but we were still surprised that the updated Nexus 7 was missing in action. Turns out the new tab might have made an appearance, but we just didn’t know it at the time. The image above is a slide that was shown during a session on high performance audio. You can clearly see the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10, and right smack in the middle is what appears to be a Nexus 7, but it doesn’t look like the current model. The bezel looks smaller and the top and bottom edges are curved.
The first assumption is that it could be a placeholder, but why would they bother with a placeholder? They could just insert the current Nexus 7 in that spot. Just in case you think the image could be fake, we provided the video of the presentation after the break. The slide shows up at the 38:27 mark. Let us know what you think.
