New Google Nexus 10 press image leaked running Android 4.4 KitKat

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.
