Google Nexus 10 tablet of Asus make on the way, might be based on the 300ppi Infinity


Google will have a full mobile portfolio this year again, it seems, as a new Nexus 10 tablet mention, this time made by Asus, made the rounds at the perennial insider @evleaks, with the enigmatic hint "Getting closer...".

This way Google will secure the gamut of its own Android devices, with the Nexus 7 (2013) slate, already out, the Nexus 5 handset fast approaching, and now the last piece of the puzzle shown in preparation.

The Google Nexus 10 already leaked out once in an UK electronics retailer inventory with a price tag of £349, which for the US will likely translate to $399, or the original Nexus 10 pricing. Asus also makes Google's 7" Nexus tablet, and this year surprised us very pleasantly with a Full HD screen resolution at a rock bottom price, so we can only imagine what it would do with the 10-incher, but which of its products it might be based on?

Actually, the chance is great that the new Nexus 10 will be based off the Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T, which boasts a brilliant 2560x1600 pixels display making it only the third 300ppi Android 10-incher, and its frugal IGZO technology will allow up to 13 hours of battery life on a charge, claims Asus. The slate is powered by a beefy quad-core Tegra 4 chipset, has 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage from the get-go, cameras with zero shutter lag and HDR abilities. Last but not least, it flaunts 263 x 180.8 x 8.9mm dimensions and just 585g of weight, despite the metallic chassis, though we don't know if the exact same design will be kept by Google. 

An Asus rep told us at the IFA expo last month that it is arriving for $400 without the USB 3.0 keyboard dock, which will run you a Benjamin more, so there's every chance the Nexus 10 specs and pricing might coincide with those of the new Transformer Pad Infinity. Check out our hands-on of what an educated guess tells us might end up labeled Google Nexus 10 (2013) below.

This Surely will give the iPad 5 a run for its money.

Are you sure? The last one hardly did anything except lagging (harsh reality). What makes you think apple won't try its best with its flagship ios device? Brace yourself. The A7X is coming. Plus the iPad 5 will be running a 64 bit OS which will be very well optimized. It will have the touch ID sensor. A great camera. An improved display (the iPads display is already awesome, no improvement needed). It will will have great cameras. +iWork + iLife free!!!! Not to mention an awesome thin and light premium design. And Ofcourse iOS 7 at its best. A7X will destroy tegra 4 in both CPU and Graphics. The new nexus 10 will be great. But the iPad 5 will be very tough to beat.

Yup... Must agree that the A7X chip especially along with the PowerVR G6630 GPU will destroy the whole competetion but considering the upsurging sales of Android Tablets along with a new updated OS Google might still manage to put some pressure on Apple...

apple does have a powerful gpu but tegra 4 claims to have alot of power in its gpu as well should be interesting and why hasnt google released a tegra 4 phone yet need to see something new rather than every phone having s800 lol.

last nexus 10 just lagged? ha, funny, the one i've owned since launch day has been smooth as project butter....And its about OS choice really, the ipad could have the specs of my custom gaming rig...but if it runs iOS, count me out. And other people do think that way (for both iOS and android), considering there are still differences between the 2 OS's. IMO, Apples just lucky they FINALLY decided to support multi-tasking.

A recent comparison from pocketnow between nexus 10 and galaxy tab 3 showed that the nexus 10 stutters very often.

Sorry buddy had a N10 sold it to some sap in russia after a week. The GPU was underpowered for that kind of resolution. I would only get 3 hours battery when playing games. Bought the iPad 4 instead and while there is lag and stutter not as bad as the N10. The N7 2013 though rocks.

In order for this to happen, Google will have to market this like they did the Nexus 7.It seems to me though most people are moving to and happier with smaller slates...7 and 8 inch tabs. I can't wait though. I passed on the first one. I may grab this once the official details are out and finalized. I'm hoping to have the Nexus 5 and Nexus 10 when all is said and done.

Asus makes fantastic tablets, Google made the right choice to stick with them for the new Nexus 10

Sorry buddy! I don't completely agree with you on Note10.1 (2013 Edition). Unless you have issues with Samsung.

Hopes it really dont have Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset and use Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5410/5420 instead. Been waiting for this one to release, to buy mine 1st 10" tablet by known brand. Tired of all chinese crap tabs.

I would prefer Exynos octa as well but sinse this is ASUS and not Samsung I don't see it happening.

The s800 beat the octa core chip and tegra 4 claims to beat s800 why would you want to go backwards doesnt make sense if power you want get the t4 besides this tablet is using the T4 cant wait to see the spec wars hope the claims are true you can also compare specs by searching nvidia shield vs s800 and gs4

might see snapdragon 800 but i doubt will be ever to see samsung latest SoC inside other product other than samsung. by the time we see Exynos 5410/5420 inside a product other than samsung, samsung will already rolling their newest SoC with their latest flagship.

Count me out for this one, Asus did a great job with the N7 2013 already, but the Note 10.1 2014 has so much awesomeness to it, multi-tasking, productivity, performance and screen resolution, that it's just too hard to pass on if it's a large-screen tablet we're talking about. Then again, Asus already has a winner in small screen.

Nice, but it has to be said that Tegra 4 simply can't compete with the A7X. Apple will have a clear edge in terms of internals because this year, they're the only vendor on the ARM v8 architecture. In q2 next year, we will see android catching up and taking over the lead with ARM v8 Tegra 5/Exynos 6 tablets..but Apple will probably come back on top in q4 with their first 20nm A8 SoC. It's looking like a shaped out cycle

i'm not sure the next tegra will use ARM v8. so far it is expected that tegra 5 will be based on A15 design. i don't know if nvidia will use 64 bit ARM core like A57 and A53 but it seems to me that nvidia intend to use their own design for the 64 bit cpu just like qualcomm Krait. from their roadmap their custom 64 bit chip will come earliest with their Tegra 6 Parker
