Is Samsung working on a 8-core, 11-inch Nexus tablet?

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.
