LG Nexus 10 Specifications Leaked, To Be Announced On November 22nd

Google already updated their Nexus phone and 7” tablet this year. But there is still one update missing from their 2013 Nexus portfolio – Nexus 10 tablet.
That update might be coming pretty soon. This week in fact, if a couple of leaked images on the Reddit are to be believed.

Also, LG becoming a Nexus tablet OEM also sounds like a next logical step in their cooperation with Google. Becoming a Nexus phone vendor last year helped to transform LG from just another Android OEM, into a premier smartphone vendor. But it is still struggling in tablets, and should be very interested to get Nexus slate to boost its fortunes. Samsung, the maker of 10” Nexus last year, has already found its tablet success, and is trying ever harder to establish its position independently from Android. Making Nexus this year is certainly not a priority for them.

LG made Google Nexus 10 2013 edition hit the web, reports detailing the new Nexus tablet's specifications also made their way out. Two of the features are already known to all (it's too obvious), and that includes Android 4.4 KitKat and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz. The 10-inch slate sports a handsome body with a slim bezel (if my eyes are still functioning well, that's what I perceived from the leaked image) which boasts a WXGA (2560 x 1600 pixels) panel. Also, a rear 10 MP camera (that's more than the Nexus 5) and 4 MP front facing snapper run the show.

If the reports are true, LG has managed to squeeze all this hardware into a slim 8.9mm chassis which weighs an astonishingly light 420 grams. Additionally, there's 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of non-expandable storage and a battery capable of outputting 18 hours of life.

Google is expected to launch the new Nexus 10 soon, probably before this month ends, on the 22nd of November, for £299 or $399.
