Google Nexus 10 2 appears in Play Store

Nexus 10

The Nexus 10 2 is perhaps one of the most anticipated tablets of 2013. However, up until now, there has been very little information available on the upcoming tablet. Nevertheless, like the Google Nexus 5 smartphone, the Google Nexus 10 2 briefly appeared on the Google Play Store. This has given us a better idea of what to expect from the soon-to-be released tablet.

As many of us expected, the new Nexus tablet will be preloaded with Android 4.4 KitKat, the upgrade to the current Android Jellybean operating system. Among other things, this new operating system will ensure that the device runs smoothly. Equipped with 3GB RAM and an unnamed quad-core processor, probably the Snapdragon 800, the Nexus 10 2 will be powerful and speedy machine.

While the first Google Nexus 10 was manufactured by Samsung, it has been revealed that the follow-up will be made by Asus. The device is said to boast a 10.055 inch (diagonal) screen with an impressive 2560 by 1600 resolution. This clarity dulls the Retina style display on the new Apple iPad Air and iPad mini 2 with Retina display, which clocks in at 2048 by 1536.

Google has improved the photographic capabilities of the Nexus 10 as the new device will sport an 8MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front facing camera. In addition, the new device will have a battery capacity of 9500mAh, which makes it 500mAh superior to its predecessor and a brilliant device for those on the go!

In addition, it has been revealed that the new Nexus 10 2 has an improved appearance. The device is said to be 19g lighter than the current model and will measure 258.9 x 172.6 x 7.9mm. This makes it even more portable and easy to hold.

While there has been no official release date, it is expected that the tablet will be released very soon, early November or even this week, alongside the new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. This fall release date will not only mean that new Android tablet will be out just in time for Christmas, but it will place it in competition with the tablets recently released from Nokia and Apple. From the specs. released so far, the Nexus 10 2, is certainly a more than capable competitor.
