New Google Nexus 10 press image leaked running Android 4.4 KitKat

Nexus 10 2 press image leak
Is this our first look at the Nexus 10 2013?

A press image of the upcoming Google Nexus 10 2.0 has leaked online running the new Android 4.4 KitKat.

The next-generation Google Nexus 10 press render has leaked online ahead of an official unveiling, showing the 10-inch tablet’s 2013 redesign.

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 the new Nexus 10 will be made with significantly reduced bezels in comparison to its predecessor.

Hopefully, with reduced bezels, the Nexus 10 will have a slimmer and thinner form factor, shaving some weight off the current 603g tablet. Google may be doing to the Nexus 10 what Apple has done between generations with the iPad 4 and iPad Air.

The front-facing camera has also moved from a landscape orientation to the top right-hand corner when in portrait mode.

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.

Recent rumours suggest the Google Nexus 10 2013 will be made by Asus rather than Samsung, who produced the previous iteration.

Asus is the company behind the Google Nexus 7 2, so it would make sense for it to be behind the next Nexus 10 as well.

Specs rumours for the new Nexus 10 have been a little scarce, but it could be based on the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T and its 2560 x 1600p Full HD resolution IGZO screen and 13-hour battery life.

The Asus-made Nexus 10 may also have an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

There was also a tip that the Nexus 10 2 will cost £350, pricing it very competitively against the £399 iPad Air.

Fake. We can see blue signal & battery. Also odl YT icon is present in this "leak".

Man, that is pretty! I hope it is real. Why didn't they do smaller bezels all around the N7 2013 like this? Why?

This looks fake to me. Black navigation and notification bars, and the old camera icon. Still using the HOLO colours for the battery and so on too, as well as the old app drawer icon.

If that actually *is* the new Nexus 10, it's running 4.3 with the 4.4 wallpaper.

Edit: Or rather the Nexus 5 wallpaper.

Second edit: Just noticed the YouTube icon is months old? They're not even trying.

Note the 4:30 time, as well.

The time alone in the status bar gives it away as being faked. Google would NEVER render a 4.4 model, with 4.30 as the time. Look at every other model of device out there. Heck, look at the official Nexus 5 Render. The time says 4:40.... It's a fake...


October 24, 2013, 4:51 pm

Wow, this is clearly fake guys. Nothing matches the official leak of the Nexus 5 screenshots from the Google Play Store or even the Telus leak, the home screen basically looks fan made, and very poorly done at that..

this just might be my first tablet if the specs are high


October 24, 2013, 7:12 pm

Just a simple notice and its fake, see youtube icon its very old youtube icon not in use now

how do you know?

We keep seeing all the leaked images and such but I have yet to hear when this thing is actually hitting the shelves. Any idea?

This is fake, the youtube icon is the one from 2011

I think they are all converting into the flat version as the iOS converted. I need to see what else they have more features in the OS.

#1 the version illustrated is 4.3 (As Google use the time for the version of android they're illustrating)
#2 The time isn't on the screen, its on the bezel. Not only that 4.4 has a transparent status bar on the home screen.
#3 The icons are old. As previously mentioned, the YouTube logo.

Would be nice to see a tablet like this though!
