Google Nexus 10 2 (2014): Specs
Samsung made the first Nexus 10 after partnering with Google on the Galaxy Nexus smartphone. It's been tipped for the second version of the tablet, too, but other leaks and rumours suggest that Asus, the maker of both Nexus 7 models, will make the 2014 Nexus 10. Furthermore, HTC is a third horse in the Nexus 10 race (see above release date section).
The original Nexus 10 had, and still has, an impressive specs line-up so it will be interesting to see what Google and whoever makes the device can come up with. However, the Nexus 10 2014 is expected to use the same 10.1 in screen size retaining the whopping 2560 x 1600 resolution.
Interestingly, the leaked press render of the Asus Nexus 10 (above) shows the tablet in portrait mode rather than landscape which is more traditional for 10 in devices.This has been shown up as a fake. As Know Your Mobile points out, the interface is far from being 4.4 KitKat.
Internally it's thought to be powered by an nVidia Tegra 4 chipset and is likely offer 2GB of RAM and up to32GB of internal storage. Once thing which is almost certain is the Nexus 10 2014 will come pre-loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat. It will be one of the two launch products for the new OS version with the Nexus 5.
A second leak on PhoneArena (at the top of the page) is also thought to be a fake. It was touted to have a Snapdragon 800 chip, 3 GB of RAM and an 8 Mp camera.
Here are the rumoured specifications for the Nexus 10 2014 with multiple entries for conflicting details.
