Google Nexus 10 2 (2014) release date, price and spec rumours

Chris Martin | Feb. 10, 2014
Everything you need to know about the new Nexus 10 tablet from Google, including rumoured release dates, prices and specifications.

Google is still selling the original Nexus 10 and with the new Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat now available, when will a new Nexus 10 be released? Here we've rounded up all the rumoured release date, price and specs information for the Google Nexus 10 2 (2014 edition). Updated on 07/02/14.

These details should be taken with a pinch of salt but bear in mind that leaked details can often be spot on.

Google Nexus 10 2 (2014): Release date
Back when Google launched the Nexus 7 2013 in July, it was reported that the firm had let slip about a new version of the Nexus 10. Amir Efrati, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, claimed that Sundar Pichai, president of Android and Chrome told him to expect a new Nexus 10 'in the near future' which would be made by Samsung.

Well a number of months has passed with no sign of the Nexus 10 so perhaps he got the wrong end of the stick.

At the beginning of September last year, Google announced that the next version of Android would be called 4.4 KitKat rather than the expected Key Lime Pie. With this announcement came no news of hardware.

Google then launched Android 4.4 KitKat the Nexus 5 on 30 October but there was still no mention or sign of a new Nexus 10 model.

Possible release dates in November came and went without a peep from Google and the tablet didn't arrive in time for Christmas.

It's now February 2014 and the original Google Nexus 10 is still on sale on the Google Play Store. The latest rumour is tipping HTC to make a new Nexus tablet with Google. This might be a Nexus 7, Nexus 10 or maybe even both.

It is thought that the HTC-made Nexus tablet will arrive in the third quarter of 2014.

Google Nexus 10 2 (2014): Price
The Nexus 10 2014's price is always going to be debatable until Google reveals the information. However, if a snapshot of PC World's computer system is to be believed, the tablet will be prices at £349.

That's a little more than the current generation which starts at £319. We're taking that leak with a pinch of salt and so should you.

It does seem fesable that the price of the Nexus 10 2 will go up, though. This year's model of the Nexus 7 went from £159 to £199 and the Nexus 5 is now £299 compared to £239.

A Reddit tipster's render, below, shows a price of £299 which would see it match the Nexus 5.
