No matter how bad you may want the hype-building campaigns preceding the oh so imminent formal intros of Google’s Nexus 5 and second-gen Nexus 10 to end, as long as Big G can keep the buzz going, they will.
But for once, today’s story doesn’t regurgitate preexisting information, instead adding to the mix and helping the hype reach suffocating levels. Are you ready for this? Apparently, the follow-up to last year’s N10 (called simply the “new” Nexus 10 or Nexus 10 2013) has been listed by mistake (yeah, right) on Google’s Play Store, being swiftly pulled out.
But not before a handful of Google aficionados (or maybe employees) could grab a few screenshots of the listing, showing in black and white the so far elusive and mysterious spec sheet of the 10-incher. Or, you know, the bullet points.
And boy, are we in for quite the treat, though the 2012 N10 was not a pushover either. While the display will be essentially identical, with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels resolution, the dual-core Exynos 5250 CPU will be swapped for a fast and furious quad-core Qualcomm Snadragon 800 and the 2 gig of RAM will be upped to 3.
Not impressed? Then maybe this will seal the deal: despite the new Nexus 10 weighing in 19 grams less than the old tab (584 in total) and measuring an incredibly slim 7.9 mm in thickness (vs. 8.9 last year), the battery capacity will be bumped up, from 9,000 to 9,500 mAh. Now that’s craftsmanship at its finest.
Shall I even mention the cameras will sport 8 and 2.1 MP sensors? Or that you’ll get pre-loaded Android 4.4 KitKat? Guess I just did.
