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.
