Is a new Google Nexus 10 on the way?
With all off the hubbub over the new version of the Google Nexus 7, featuring a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a higher-resolution screen and Android 4.3 installed, there is some talk about a refreshed version of the Google Nexus 10. This information is said to come from none other than Google's own Sundar Pichai, who told a plugged-in WSJ reporter about the tablet.

Amir Efrati, a reporter for the businessman's bible, sent out a tweet earlier on Wednesday, saying that he was told by Pichai that a new Google Nexus 10 should be expected in the near future. Just like the current version of the slate, the new version would be manufactured by Samsung. With the tablet running Android 4.3 at present, depending on when the revised version of the Nexus 10 would be released, Android 5.0 just might be debuted on the device.

IF they keep the trend of the Exynos, it should be the Exynos Octa 5420, which has a GPU which is more appropriate for the Nexus's resolution. Or at least a Tegra 4, or Snapdragon 800.

Well we know it's going to have better specs than the Nexus 7 II so for me that's a total WIN.

+1

What are you doing with it? Mine gets treated like crap used for playing games, watching movies, etc and battery life isn't as bad as you make it out to be.

if your nexus 10 is faulty, that doesn't mean that every nexus 10 is faulty as well! :) take it to a service center!

OMG this day just keeps getting better! Nexus 10 had a very high Pixel density now nexus 7 has it so will the new nexus 10 even beat that!

I really doubt they will increase the resolution as it is already very high, they just have to improve contrast, color range and brightness and they will have an excellent screen. (It already is excellent)

I agree. All the other factors will probably be prioritized for improvement as well as energy efficiency of the screen hopefully. Since you generally hold a 10" tablet further from your face than a smartphone, a 300+ ppi pixel density may very well take a backseat to other possible improvements.

I heard the initial Nexus 10 shipments had GPUs that did struggle a little bit pushing all the pixels. Using the latest GPU pushing the same amount of pixels may also allow an even more buttery UI + transitions.

higher resolution? how?
It's impossible at that moment, however more powerful internals will be used (cpu/gpu/ram)

come on, only 9 months have passed since the nexus 4 release... why do people need a new phone every month? do they use or collect them?

The nexus 4 came out November time. It sold out then came back in again in around February, wait until that time for the new nexus phone that's also the same time the nexus 10 was announced!

Always out of stock should ram up the supply of the existing one first.

If they were to miraculously add an Oled screen that would be icing on the cake. Those deep blacks look awesome especially at night whereas the screen on my TF700 comes off as gray.

Samsung already has 3200x1800 screens.
They could put that in the Nexus 10 II.
Along with the new Exynos 5420 and Mali-T628 graphics.
