Google’s highly anticipated new Nexus 7 tablet was unveiled to the masses yesterday, but it looks like consumers in the UK will need to wait until September before they can get their mitts on a unit.

AndroidCentral spotted today that Currys and PC World, two high-profile brick-and-mortar retailers owned by Dixons Retail, are already listed with an expected release date of September 13. That’s considerably later than July 30, when consumers in the US can purchase it from the Google Play store, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, Staples and other retailers.

Currys and PC World are pricing the 16GB model at 199.99 and the 32GB variant at 239.99, considerably higher than the $229.99 ( 150) price tag offered in the United States.

Both the price and date could be subject to change, but it’s an early indicator of when Google’s new flagship tablet could hit markets outside the US.

The slate, unveiled yesterday, boasts a 1080p (1920 1200 resolution) 7-inch display with a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset and 2GB of memory. It’s considerably thinner and lighter than its older sibling and boasts a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera alongside a 5-megapixel snapper on the back.

It ships with Android 4.3, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, as well as dual speakers for higher-quality audio.
