Google and Samsung will join forces once again to launch a Nexus 11 tablet, which will boast the Korean company's Exynos 5 octa-core processing technology, according to reports.
The mostly reliable Sam Mobile site claims to have uncovered Samsung's tablet roadmap for 2013, which includes a Google-branded Nexus device that may launch later this year.
The site says it'll be the first tablet ever to offer the eight-core processor, which appears in some international versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.
The so-called Nexus 11 will, naturally, boast an 11-inch Super PLS TFT screen according to the report, with 8 and 2-megapixel cameras and up to 64GB of storage through micro SD.
If this were to come to fruition, it would seem likely that it would arrive whenever Google decides to refresh its Nexus tablet line-up later this year.
Apparently, the Nexus 11 isn't all Samsung has up its sleeve, Sam Mobile reckons. The site lists three more tablets including a dual-core Galaxy Tab 11 and a quad-core Galaxy Tab 8.0.
Also on the agenda, according to the site, is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 'DUOS' 7.0, which would offer dual-sim functionality and a dual-core processor.
Obviously, it'd be wise to take this report with a pinch of salt at the moment, but we certainly wouldn't rule out a Google/Samsung Nexus 11 tablet sometime in 2013, especially seeing as Samsung built the popular and affordable Nexus 10 tablet for Google last year.
