When Google released its original Nexus 10 more than a year ago, the tablet boasted the highest display resolution available at that point of time - 2560 x 1600 pixels. However, later in 2013, rumors started making rounds about how a new generation Nexus was already upon us - A Nexus that's made by
Sadly enough, nothing could be unearthed about the existence of the device (let alone a release date), and although a lot of hopes were pinned on the recently concluded CES 2014 regarding any potential evidence related to the tablet, absolutely nothing was revealed.
Nonetheless, even though in a rumored state, the device is already making rounds in the blogosphere with its host of rumored specifications and in-device details which, quite honestly, look pretty amazing. And we are guessing that if, however, these specs eventually turn out to be true, the next Google Nexus 10 from Samsung will become a serious threat to all its rival tablet makers in the market, that including Apple and its iPad offering.
But what's so special about the Samsung-made Google Nexus 10? Let's take a closer look at the top five rumored specifications for the device -
Operating System and Display
As expected, the next Google Nexus 10 is heavily anticipated to arrive with the latest version of the Android operating system - v4.4 (KitKat) - that will look to provide an even smoother transition into the next stage of Android development.
What Android 4.4 will do is that its will optimize the device's performance manifold by optimizing the device's memory and improved touchscreen so that the tablet responds faster and more accurately than it ever did.
The device is also said to be a 10.1-inch tablet that will offer a Super PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen, boasting 2560 x 1600 pixels (~299 ppi pixel density).
Apparently, the device is said to arrive with an 8-megapixel camera (3264 x 2448 pixels) that will be assisted by autofocus and LED flash, with video recording capabilites of 1080p@30fps. And that's not as half bad a spec for a tablet-based camera as some might think, especially in an age where smartphones are normally offering at least a 13-megapixel camera.
Apart from that, there will also be a front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera present for video chat.
While everything here has to be taken with a pinch of salt, it has been highly rumored that The Samsung-made Google Nexus 10 will arrive with a whooping 32GB internal memory that will be backed by 3GB of RAM. However, there's a catch. Apparently, the device shall not sport any external card slot for added memory support.
And while that may seem a bit harsh to many of you looking to attain the highest possible memory on your device, in a way, it's actually justified since there's a very less probability of you anytime running out of the space since 32GB is a huge amount of memory
Since the device is expected to run the most advanced version of Android, it's only normal that the device will require a powerful backing, as far as its internal processor and CPU is concerned.
The Google Nexus 10 from Samsung is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, assisted by a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU. And that's more powerful that you can actually imagine.
Not much to ponder over here since it seems like the device will cater to the usual connectivity features we normally get with a new age smartphone. But for the sake it, the device will offer Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA, as far as WLAN features are concerned.
Also, the device will offer Bluetooth v4.0 with dual side NFC.
