Google Nexus 7 has hogged the limelight ever since its debut with the famed Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the portable devices market. With power-packed hardware features, Nexus 7 fans would be craving for some equally worthy accessories.
While reports from Tech Radar and Mobile Fun call the five leaked accessories "official", Asus has been in touch with IBTimes UK directly to say these are not offical Nexus 7 accessories. . The leaked accessories include a rotating stand case, a flip stand case, a folio case, a Bluetooth keyboard case and a screen protector.
However, the most intriguing of the lot are the rotating stand case, Bluetooth keyboard case and the screen protector for their creative design and value-added features.
Here are the leaked accessories:
Google Nexus 7 Rotating Stand Case
As its name suggests, the rotating stand case enables the user to view the screen both in landscape and portrait modes. The landscape mode will be ideal for watching movies and playing games, while the portrait mode will enable browsing and reading.
The case is made of durable leather material, which not only gives it a luxurious feel and look, but also offers protection from scratches and knocks. Being an officially licensed Asus product, it fits snugly to the dimensions of Nexus 7 with neatly cut-out openings assigned for ports, front-facing camera and buttons.
Google Nexus 7 Regular Stand Case
Those who do not have much use for portrait mode can get the regular stand case (supporting only landscape mode) at a cheaper price than its rotating counterpart. Rest of the design elements including the protective leather casing remain unchanged to preserve the style quotient as well as offer premium protection.
Google Nexus 7 Folio Case
The folio case resembles a book in portrait mode and controls the magnetic sensor on the Nexus 7. It turns on the tablet screen when opened and shuts it down when closed. You may also switch to landscape mode by flipping the cover round and using it like a stand. The folio case also supports an integrated wallet for storing pieces of paper.
Google Nexus 7 Bluetooth Keyboard Case
The integrated Nexus 7 Bluetooth keyboard offers a sleek and trendy, full-sized QWERTY keypad for comfortable ergonomics for typing e-mails, documents and lengthy articles. Significantly, it does not even exceed the bulk of the case, besides being spill- and dust-proof. The Bluetooth keyboard case also comes with an integrated desk stand that is ideal for watching films and playing games.
Google Nexus 7 Screen Protector
The Nexus 7 screen protector offers protection from smudges, scratches and screen damage in transit. The oleophobic screen is fingerprint-resistant and does not need an adhesive for sticking to the screen. The screen protector made of high quality optically enhanced film, retains excellent contrast and viewing angles of the Nexus 7 screen.
Meanwhile, there is still no word on the official release date or the price for these unofficial Nexus 7 accessories.
