The new leaked render shows the Nexus 10 front display, it has a similar design to the Nexus 7. The Nexus 10 will apparently be made by the same manufacturer of the Nexus 7, ASUS, who have worked with Google from the start on the smaller tablet project.
It is exciting to see the ten-inch model will not be cut off the list, even though Google is not making as many sales. Reports indicate around 500,000 sales of the Nexus 10 throughout its lifespan, compared to the Nexus 7 selling around eight million units.
The new Nexus 10 will come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 10-inch 2,560×1,600 resolution and Android KitKat 4.4. This is a big step up from the previous Nexus 10 device, but the resolution is staying the same, unsurprisingly.
The Android KitKat 4.4 feature means the Nexus 10 will most likely be launched at the same event as the Nexus 5. Google has already announced a Google Play event for tonight and it may be shown there, if not we will probably see it released in the coming weeks.
Even though the Nexus 10 had some problems, Google has been working on making more tablet optimised apps and integrating features into tablets, making them more usable for some tasks then smartphones.
The Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 and some Samsung tablets still reign supreme, but this is just the same as the smartphone world minus Google and Amazon. This is one of the reasons why Google chose ASUS to build the new Nexus 10, instead of Samsung.
