Google's Android event on October 29 is surely one of the worst kept secrets ever in the world of technology.
The detailed specifications and pictures of nearly all the devices that Google expects to launch on October 29 have been leaked online by now, be it the LG Nexus 4, the 32GB variant of the Google Nexus 7, a Nexus 7 tablet with 3G connectivity and now, the 10-inch tablet from Google, the Google Nexus 10, that's supposedly manufactured Samsung.
A website named BriefMobile has released a large of images that show Google's upcoming tablet, the Google Nexus 10. The leak also shows in detial, the specifications of the Nexus 10.
According the leaked specifications, the Nexus 10 tablet from Google is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor with a Cortex-A15 architecture and Mali-T604 GPU that is built by Samsung. If the various benchmarking results are to be believed, this processor scores much ahead of Apple's A6 processor that comes in the fourth generation iPad. The processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM should give blazing fast performance to the users.
Leaked Nexus 10 Specifications:
- 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600(~300ppi)
- 1.7GHz dual-core processor with 2GB RAM
- Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0
- Android 4.2
- 5-megapixel rear-facing camera
- 16GB internal storage (most probably 8GB/32GB variants too)
The Google Nexus10 sports a 10.1-inch a display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (~300 ppi).
The tablet that was reviewed by the website came with 16GB of internal storage, and we expect Google to launch the 8GB/32GB variants as well. Still, there is no confirmation if the device would come with a micro-SD card slot or not.
The device would feature a 5-megapixel rear camera that would probably be able to record videos in at least 720p. For the connectivity options there will be NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
One of the most interesting things that can be seen from the leaked images is that though, the Nexus 10 tablet runs on Android 4.2, it's still named as Jelly Bean and not the previously rumored, Key Lime Pie.
As far as the design of the Nexus 10 goes, it is being said that the rear has a brushed aluminum feel with the edges believed to be rubber coated. Overall, the tablets feel light and thin.
Google, which has always priced it's devices aggressively ( Nexus 7 anyone?), might just price the Nexus 10 on the same lines too. If that turns out to be true, it would surely be a great blow to it's competitors like the Apple iPad , Amazon Kindle Fire HD and Microsoft Surface.
With the details of the upcoming devices and now, the Nexus 10 surfacing a couple of days before the event, the only thing we'll be looking forward to, is the pricing and availability of these devices.
