I bet you’ve heard that Google will host an important event on October 29th, as it was rumored that new terminals belonging to the Nexus line-up will debut then. It seems that we are talking both about Google Nexus smartphones and tablets, and the latest reports are indicating that a Nexus tablet co-developed with Samsung will be unveiled next week.
What we know so far is that the Mountain View company will launch an LG Nexus 4, a smartphone that was already reviewed by a Belorussian website. As about the Samsung tablet, it seems that it will be a 10-inch device with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, a terminal that made the headlines around CES 2012, when everybody expected to see it in flesh. If the rumors are accurate, then it would outmatch the pixel density of the new iPad 3, as it will come with 300 ppi compared to the 264 ppi density of the Apple tablet.
Rumor has it that the Samsung tablet is running Android 4.2 out of the box, which will probably be the star of the October 29th event. The guys at The Next Web hadn’t managed to persuade their source to confirm the identity of the Samsung terminals as a Nexus 10 tablet, unfortunately.
We know so far that this model currently goes by the codename of Manta. But what should we also expect a week from now? Well, a Google Nexus 7 tablet with 32 GB of storage, especially that some customers reported that certain retailers in Japan and US have mistakenly shipped such devices.
Least, but not last, you should expect the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. They say that the next-gen Google dev phone will come with 4.37-inch display with HD resolution, an amazing quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 16 GB of internal storage (first rumored as an 8 GB device) and an 8 megapixel camera on the back. It looks like Nexus 4 will come pre-loaded with Android 4.2 and that it will have a 2,100 mAh battery.
There were some speculations regarding other Nexus smartphones (one manufactured by Sony and another one by Samsung), but I don’t think they will ever see the light of day.
