Samsung again looks to be the hardware maker of choice for the 10-inch Nexus tablet
Take this next bit of news however you want, but new Nexus 10 details have surfaced this afternoon. According to evleaks, the successor could debut with Android 4.5 and feature 3GB RAM with 16GB and 32GB storage options. The kicker? It’s from Samsung, not Asus.
We’ve heard arguments on both sides of the field that the new 10-inch Google tablet would come from either of these. Should this bit of news prove accurate, then the tablet could also boast a Samsung Exynos 5 processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and 3-megapixel front-facing camera. That display? Look for 2560×1600 pixels, or a WQWGA resolution.
As to whether all of this will pan out remains unclear; even evleaks says they “cannot vouch for this”.
We would assume that Android 4.5 is stilled called “KitKat”, especially given the promotional effort and cross-branding involved.
Unfortunately there’s not a word of pricing or availability. But, given that the 16GB and 32GB versions of the Nexus 10 are out of stock (as of right now) we could hear something soon.
UPDATE: Pocket-lint has received its own render of this tablet, however their model is black. A black and white version of a device sounds exactly like something Google might do.
