On Wednesday afternoon the folks at Phone Arena received an alleged press photo of the Google Nexus 10 2013 in their email inbox. The photo comes from an “anonymous tipster” and if it’s the real deal it should allow us to take a look at the next-gen Nexus 10 tablet.
Rumor has it that the Nexus 10 2013 will be manufactured by ASUS Taiwanese company. While the current generation is manufactured by Samsung, sources in the industry are suggesting that ASUS will once again team-up with Google, this to develop a 10 inch tablet. As you probably know Google and the Taiwanese manufactured collaborated for both Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 2013.
A couple of months ago it was reported that the next-gen Nexus 10 will ditch the current dual-core Samsung Exynos SoC over a quad-core Snapdragon chipset. According to the same reports the screen resolution of the new 10.1-inch tablet will be maintained to 2560 x 1600 pixels. Of course, the Nexus 10 2013 is expected to leave the factory gates pre-loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Nexus 10 2013 will have a couple of heavy competitors this year: Apple’s iPad Air and the Windows-powered Nokia Lumia 2520. Well, Nexus 10’s main weapon against the two aforementioned slates will be the competitive price and specifications.
Rumor has it that the Nexus 10 will be based on the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T, an impressive 10.1-inch slate with 2560 x 1600 resolution IGZO screen and 13 hours of battery life.
We can’t know for sure whether the below picture is indeed the press rendering of the Nexus 10 2013 or just a fan’s mock-up, therefore we are advising you to take the rumor with a pinch of salt.
For the time being there’s no official release date for the Nexus 10 2013, but everybody anticipates that the 10 incher will see the light of day synchronized with Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 debut later this month. Hopefully we will hear from Google soon.
