Google will be launching three new devices namely, Samsung Nexus 10, LG Nexus 4 and an updated Nexus 7 32 gig version. All the three devices are interesting, and like the Nexus 7 shook the tablet market, even the Samsung Nexus 10 is expected to do the same.
Nexus 10 is an interesting device. Even though it has not yet been launched, we know a lot about it, thanks to number of leaks from official as well as unofficial sources. A guide of Samsung Nexus 10 was leaked few days back and it gave us an outline and basic idea on how the device will look like. The basic design itself is very much similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 with the speakers on its face and a panel around the rear camera. The details revealed by the manual are also in line with the information that we already know from numerous leaks in the past few days. The picture of manual is of course a good leak, but how about pictures of the actual device?
Folks at BriefMobile claim to be the first to release pictures of the yet to be launched Samsung Nexus 10. The source has posted several pictures of the device and these snaps depict a Nexus and Samsung-branded tablet in the wild, and what’s good about these pictures is that the design of the tablet device is in agreement with what we saw in the leaked quick start guide, sporting a black panel around the rear camera, speakers on the sides and the nice Nexus branding on the rear panel.
Talking about the specs, below is what we know:
• Samsung Exynos 5250
o Clocked at 1.7 GHz
o Dual-core Cortex-A15
o Mali-T604 GPU
• 2GB RAM
• 16GB internal storage (other options possible)
• 10.1-inch Super AMOLED display
o 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution
o 298.9 pixels-per-inch
• 5-megapixel rear-facing camera
o LED flash
• Front-facing camera
• Bluetooth 4.0
• Dual speakers located on front of device
According to BriefMobile, the device they got their hands on is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Yes, it’s called as Jelly Bean, so by all possibilities the device we are looking at is only a prototype. Some of the new software features that will be included in Android 4.2 (Key Lime Pie) include a new Gallery app, an improved Camera app, a new quick settings bar and capability to handle different user accounts.
The word has it that Samsung will be going against Apple’s iPad with this new nexus device, and seems like they’re on the right track. The 10.1” display that is included in this device comes with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. Using my quick calculation ability, the screen has a pixel density of 298.9 pixels per inch, and that substantially exceeds the pixel density of “Retina Display” that is featured on third gen Apple iPad (263.92 PPI). Google’s Nexus 10 will be equipped with 5 megapixel rear camera, NFC connectivity, WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. What are your thoughts on this device? Let us know in the comment section below.
