[Update: Fake] New Nexus 10 listing shows up on Play Store, reveals specs similar to Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

Update: According to PhoneArena, the original source of this info, the listing is a fake, as it was apparently sent to them by a tipster with a poor track record of accurate news.

While Google’s original Samsung-made Nexus 10 tablet never caught on in the market, the search giant has still been working on a successor, with Android head Sundar Pichai revealing at Google I/O that an upgraded model was on its way. Now, it looks like the new Nexus 10 – 2013 Edition if you like – could be launching very soon, as it was briefly listed on the Google Play Store earlier today.

As expected, the specs are pretty similar to the Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition, which in turn shared the original Nexus 10′s one defining feature – the incredibly sharp 2560×1600 display. That display is back in business on the new Nexus 10, and the tablet will also become the first Nexus and first non-Nexus device to sport 3GB of RAM. Other specs include a Snapdragon 800 processor (which indicates it will have LTE connectivity, or Samsung would have used its Exynos chip instead), 8-megapixel camera, 32GB internal storage, 9,500mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.


Of course, given how poor the 10-inch tablet ecosystem currently is on Android, with most apps simply being blown up versions of their phone counterparts, the new Nexus 10 will likely be a dud in the market as well. But for those that are interested, this accidental reveal of the device on the Play Store gives a pretty neat picture of what to expect from the new upgraded 10-inch Nexus.

Anyone excited for this thing?

  1. I’m concerned that the s800 won’t be able to properly push 2560*1600 pixels…

    • And fake. I doubt that Google (or anyone) would use the same CPU/GPU combo to power a 1920*1080 screen as well as a 2560*1600 screen.

      • Well, there’s nothing better than the Snapdragon 800 CPU at this point for use with Android devices, so Google really doesn’t have any choice. Not to mention it’s the only chip that has proper LTE support.

        Also, the resolution is not that high enough for the Snapdragon 800 not to be able to power it. The original’s Exynos was able to, and the S800 is quite a beast and faster.
