It’s been a few months since the 16GB Nexus 10 is out of stock and now the 32GB one is nowhere to be found on Google Play. This leads us to believe the 2014 Nexus 10 2 release date is getting near and Google is probably not going to supply the old version anymore.
Google Nexus 10 is old enough to be upgraded and we believe the company is preparing for a release right now. The old Google Nexus 10’s release date was November 2012, so it’s been over a year without no upgrade at all. Rumors have been flowing lately about a new version and it seems like Samsung will produce the new one too.
Previous rumors have been talking about a late 2013 release date for the Nexus 10 2, but it seems like they were wrong. People have been expecting it on Cyber Monday and then at CES, but Google didn’t announce it yet. It’s possible that Google might silently release it, without a dedicated event, especially if they don’t have a new Android version to release along with it.
We’re expecting the 2014 Nexus 10 2 tablet to be built by Samsung and it should feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Tegra 4 GPU and 2GB or 3GB of RAM. It will definitely come with Android 4.4 KitKat, considering it’s a Nexus. It will also probably have a thinner bezel, weight less and be thinner than the previous version. Hopefully Google will also improve the battery capacity and they might release an LTE-A variant too.
The new Nexus 10 might get released as early as this month if we’re lucky enough, but if this is not the case, then we’re pretty sure that it won’t come any later than February.
If you’re planning to buy a new Nexus 10, we suggest you to wait a bit until Google releases the new version. You’ll be able to either get the old one cheaper or buy the new version, which should be much better in terms of hardware.
