Sundar Pichai: New Samsung-made Google Nexus 10 tablet coming soon
Now that the second-generation Nexus 7 is finally official, you may wonder if there’s also going to be a new Nexus 10 arriving soon. Well, it looks like the answer is yes.
According to the WSJ’s Amir Efrati, Google’s Sundar Pichai himself said that a new 10-inch Nexus tablet would be unveiled “in the near future.” Like the original Nexus 10, the next one will be manufactured by Samsung. No other details were given, but I assume the new 10 inch Nexus will be released before the end of this year.
Back in January, there was a rumor pointing to a next-gen Nexus 10 with an unspecified quad-core processor, and an 8-core Mali T678 GPU. That, of course, remains to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, the 2013 Nexus 7 – manufactured by Asus – should be available in the US on July 30, running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. Prices will start at just $229.99 (16GB version), making it a very competitive tablet – just like the first generation Nexus 7 was. The new model features a 7 inch display with the highest pixel resolution on the market (1920 x 1200, 323ppi), 5MP rear camera, 1.2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU. There will also be a 32GB LTE version priced at $349.
