Google has been rumored to be working on a 10-inch Nexus tablet for some time now. However, the rapidly surfacing evidence seems to indicate that the Nexus 10 is something bigger than rumors.
Google Nexus 10, a tablet manufactured by Samsung, is widely anticipated to be debuting at Google's Android event on Monday, Oct. 29. Reports suggest that the tablet will feature a 10-inch AMOLED display with 2,560 X 1,600 pixels resolution, dual-core Exynos 5250 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and a front-facing camera for video calling.
On Friday, Oct. 26, folks at BriefMobile posted some pictures of the alleged tablet, which showed a similar design revealed in a Nexus 10 manual that was spotted on Korean Web site Seeko. BreifMobile claims that the new Exynos 5250 will outgun Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor as well as the Apple A6 chip fitted in the new iPhone. The tablet lacks microSD card slot, but reports claim that Google will fulfil the storage need with cloud storage.
The Nexus 10 is also expected to run a new version of the Android OS a.k.a Android 4.2. Reports suggest that the newer version will be called Jelly Bean, same as the codename for Android 4.1, instead of Key Lime Pie.
What's more, per reports, Google's SVP of engineering, Vic Gundotra, has posted some photos taken with the rumored tablet on his Google+ account. The Google executive did not mention the Nexus 10 tablet in the post, but the image details highlight Nexus 10 as the photo capturer. The uploaded photo has a resolution of 2,048 X 1,536 pixels, or roughly three megapixels. Google+ automatically crops and resizes the uploaded photos, so it is safe to assume that the original size of the photo is five megapixels.
Google is expected to debut the tablet at its Android event scheduled in New York on Oct. 29. The internet search giant is likely to announce some other Nexus device too, including the rumored LG Nexus 4 smartphone and a 32GB version of Nexus 7. Additionally, Google is also expected to release a new version of Nexus 7 offering cellular connectivity at the event.
