While most of you have been disillusioned over Google’s Nexus 10 2 release date silence, it looks like we may have an interesting conclusion to the saga at CES 2014. Many consumers had been expecting LG to build the Nexus 10 2, but in fact rumors are now suggesting that Samsung could be the company with the task of handling Google’s Nexus 10 2014 tablet.
This is interesting, largely due to the fact that we already have Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition on the market. Now, we could see Samsung expand their range with a Nexus branded tablet, with whispers suggesting that the device could be the previously rumored 10.5-inch AMOLED tablet from the company.
We were initially under the impression that this was a separate device from the Nexus 10 2, but now it could be the same device. A 10.5 inch Nexus 10 2 would be an exciting prospect, especially if it comes with specs such as an Octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and the very latest version of Android 4.4 Kitkat.
Samsung and Google are obviously remaining silent on this possibility, but what an interesting conclusion it would be after LG were thought to be getting the nod. Then again, LG has just launched the LG G Pad 8.3, so perhaps Google were after a fresh start after LG’s work on the Nexus 5.
All eyes should now be on CES 2014. Samsung usually has a very big presence at the event, so we have a feeling that we could finally see the next Nexus tablet soon.
As we await further details, let us know your thoughts on Samsung now being favorite to build the Nexus 10 2. Does a 10.5-inch tablet sound interesting you, with stock Android that will receive updates before any other device?
