Google’s Nexus 7 tablet has seen tremendous success and support since it has been released. In the 7-inch market, the tablet offers the definitive Android experience and has been praised as one of the best tablets in the market regardless of display size and OS.
When it comes to larger displays in the tablet game, the truth remains that Apple’s iPad is still king. With news of Apple potentially adding the iPad mini to its product lineup, Google certainly will be facing increased competition in this market space. It has also come as no surprise that Google has also decided to take the fight to Apple with a rumored new 10-inch Nexus device to take on Apple’s primary tablet.
All eyes as of late may be on the upcoming Nexus 4, however, a leak on Picasa has all but unofficially confirmed the existence of a Google-Samsung collaboration on a new Nexus tablet. While details are not too specific on what the tablet will be like we do know a few things. According to the EXIF data that surfaced on the Picasa website (the image taken supposedly by a Nexus 10), has a resolution of 2560 x 1920, which somewhat lines up with earlier rumors suggesting the device will have a 10.1-inch display at 2560 x 1600 resolution. The image that was posted clearly looks like it was intended to highlight the standard camera capabilities of the Nexus 10 – so we see everything from the 2.7 Aperture & Exposure of 1/15 sec. One major item to note from his image is that it is sporting Android build JVP12C, an unspecified Jelly Bean (or higher) build. This hints that Nexus 10 may hold the keys to what should be the latest Android software.
We’ve heard a lot about a Nexus 10 device and that it could be the rumored Samsung device packing an impressive resolution of 2560×1600 (density of 299ppi) as well as the dual-core Exynos 5250. Whether or not this is what a possible Nexus 10 could become it doesn’t look all that unbelievable as we now know that Samsung are ready to ship the new Exynos 5250 based on the Cortex-A15 architecture as it’s at the heart of the latest Samsung Chromebook.
Please keep in mind that all of this is unofficial As previously reported, Google will be holding an event on October 29th, so it is possible that a small announcement could come during that time. While that may seem unlikely, it certainly is not out of the question. DroidDog will continue to monitor over any upcoming info that continues to trickle out on Google’s Nexus 10.
