Google’s Next Nexus Tablet Might Go to 11

by Reads (3,211)

The Google Nexus 10 will be followed by an even larger version later this year, if an unconfirmed report is correct.

Google Nexus 10Only a handful of details on this tablet are known, aside from its 11-inch touchscreen. Even the resolution of this display is a mystery.

It will reportedly be built by Samsung, just like the current version, and will run Android on a Samsung Exynos Octa processor, which means it will be built around a chip with no less than an eight processor cores. This recently went into mass production, and the Nexus 11 might be the first tablet with one.

Which version of Android it uses will depend on when it is released. Google is expected to come out with an update for this operating system next month. Rumor says this will either be Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) or Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie).

The most-recent unconfirmed report also indicates that the Nexus 11 will have a microSD card slot. This would be a departure for Google — previous Nexus tablets have not had expandable memory.

In addition, this device will supposedly have an 8 MP main camera plus a 2 MP webcam.

A Samsung-only Version, Too

According to this same source, Samsung is going to release its own version of this tablet… with a change or two. It will have a slower dual-core Exynos processor, not an octa-core one.

All the Nexus models run a “stock” version of Android, but Samsung adds its own TouchWiz user interface to its models. That’s almost certainly going to be the case with this version.
