There have been previous leaks about Google’s second-generation Nexus 10, but new reports are now suggesting that the 10-inch tablet could go on sale as early as next week.
According to reports the tablet is expected to roll out on the 21st of November. The launch has been delayed actually because of the Play Store. Google wants to optimize the Play Store to make all the tablet-optimized apps easier to browse before launching the Nexus 10 2.
The developers are already been notified to segregate their apps between tablets and smartphones. Finally Google is paying attention to lack of tablet optimized apps for Android by motivating developers.
The 10 inch tabled will boast an eye popping Gorilla Glass 3 display with 2560x1600p resolution. The device will also run on a quad core Snapdragon 800 chip processor with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU which sees it as a powerful device. The Nexus 10 2 will have an internal memory of 32GB and of course, the new Android 4.4 operating system. This device is also expected to have an 8 MP Primary Camera with 2.1 MP Front Facing Camera.

Take this rumor with a grain of salt. The next-generation Google Nexus 10 press render has leaked thanks to PhoneArena ahead of an official unveiling. An anonymous tipster sent the Nexus 10 2.0 press image to PhoneArena, so it’s not clear whether it’s an authentic render, but if it is, we can expect the next Google 10-inch slate to feature a modified body. From the image, it’s evident that bezels have been reduced compared to its predecessor. With the placement of camera, the device seems to be made in a way to emphasize use in portrait mode
Hopefully, with reduced bezels, the Nexus 10 will have a slimmer and thinner form factor. Google may be doing to the Nexus 10 what Apple has done between generations with the iPad 4 and iPad Air.
The Nexus 10 press image also shows another glimpse at the upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat OS, complete with the new Google Hangouts icon and wallpapers. According to recent rumors the Google Nexus 10 2013 will be made by Asus rather than Samsung, who produced the second generation Nexus 7.
The Asus-made Nexus 10 is rumored to have an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It will support 2560 x 1600p screen with 13 Hours of Battery Life. There was also a tip that the Nexus 10 2 will cost £350, pricing it very competitively against the £399 iPad Air. If true, it sounds like the Nexus 10 franchise is in good hands.
