Google Nexus 10 2.0: Official specs leak online

Specs for the Google Nexus 10 2.0 have leaked online, revealing the 10.1-inch device to be quite the powerhouse.

Although Google has yet to officially announce the next-generation of its Nexus 10, a full listing appeared on the Google Play Store before it was quickly removed.

The Google Play Store entry for the new Nexus 10 gave a full specs page that some eagle-eyed tipster managed to get a screen grab of before Google pulled the listing.

Acquired by a PhoneArena reader, the specs sheet listed a 10.1-inch 10.1-inch WQXGA Full 2560 x 1600p HD resolution display with a 300ppi image density.

This high-resolution screen is exactly the same spec as the first generation Nexus 10, but is now protected by  Corning Gorilla Glass 3 rather than Gorilla Glass 2.

Interestingly, the Nexus 10 listing showed that the next-gen edition of the tablet will use a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, the same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Previously, Google’s 10-inch slate packed a dual-core Samsung Exynos 5 processor with 2GB of RAM. The fact that Google isn’t opting for a Samsung chip suggests the search engine giant may well be using another manufacturer to produce the Nexus 10 altogether.

Previous leaks suggested that Asus will be making the Nexus 10 2.0, the company already responsible for producing the Google Nexus 7 2.

The Google Play devices page also said the Nexus 10 2.0 will come with 32GB internal storage as standard and run Android 4.4 KitKat from the box.

It could also have a whopping 9500mAh battery, up from 9000mAh in the current iteration and still only have Wi-Fi connectivity. Bluetooth and NFC compatibility are there too of course.

Google will also be shaving some millimetres off the weight and dimensions of its next 10-inch tablet. According to the Google Play listing, it will weigh 584g and measure up at 258.9 x 172.6 x 7.9mm.

The current generation offers dimensions of 263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9 mm and weighs 603g.

Latest rumours suggest that we could be seeing the Nexus 10 2.0 launch as early as this Friday, November 1, but with no official word from Google yet we wait with bated breath.
