Google Nexus 10 leaks in full: 1.7GHz Exynos 5250 CPU, 2,560 x 1,600 resolution display and Android 4.2

Google Nexus 10 leaks in full: 1.7GHz Exynos 5250 CPU, 2,560 x 1,600 resolution display and Android 4.2It's the only way to end a week like this I suppose: a nice quiet incidental Friday night leak of the Google Nexus 10. As in photos, specs, the lot.

The chaps over at BriefMobile seem to have got their hands on a Nexus 10 ahead of Monday's grand unveiling, and have shared their good fortune in full with the world.

We'll start with the all-important specifications: we're talking a dual-core 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos 5250 with a Mali-T604 GPU, a 10.1in Super AMOLED display running at 2560 x 1600, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of (non-expandable) internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, plus NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Oh, and Android 4.2.

Clearly the screen looks to be the real highlight, offering a 298.9ppi density on a panel running into double figures on the inch-count. Very nice indeed.

As for the visuals, well it does look better than the line-drawing offered up by the scan we saw yesterday of a page in the Nexus 10 manual, which is no surprise. Whether it actually looks good, well we'll leave that entirely up to you - BriefMobile has a good few pics for you to make your mind up over, at least.

A New iPad-beater? A new New iPad-beater? It has the credentials, but does it have the looks, the build quality, and of course what about the price? Potential tablet-buyers in the run-up to Christmas are going to have a lot to think about.

It doesn't have the ecosystem thats for sure. Ive tried android tablets and the app support is far from good enough. Specs on this look amazing though, depends how its priced.

Certinfy  Oct. 26, 2012 at 21:31

Under £270 and one of these will be mine, doubt it though... :(

I reckon £300-350?

Number of compelling apps still not great for Android tabs. That leaves a handful of decent games, and video watching - hampered by fixed 16GB...
Price is, ahem, interesting... Though, you may as well buy a discounted Toshiba 'Excite' or something. (It's a problem for this device: so many decent Android tabs flopped - so many on offer... e.g. quad-core Acer Iconia A210 can be had for £250)

16gb have they learnt nothing...

Dual core cpu? Transformer Prime & Infinity running Quad core?????

I don't see a problem with that...yet. Use a HTC One X and S side by side. No difference. In fact: I felt the S was faster. Few Android apps take advantage of quad-coreness, yet.

Just got to laugh at this, do some research dude.

A dual core ARM Cortex A15 CPU outperforms a quad core ARM Cortex A9 with less power consumption, More cores do not equal more performance in this case. Tegra 3 Vs Exynos 5250, the performance is actually quite substantially better on the Exynos, whilst using alot less power. The Exynos 5250 is currently the most powerful ARM based processor on the market.

It actually was faster, less pixels to push & faster more efficient dual core processor.

It is Samsung, so possibly even north of 350. Maybe 399.99, but i would hope its under 350 for the sake of this tablet succeeding,anything over 350 will bomb.

This goes for orthodoxy in the apple world, but it's just not true. Not only does Android have more apps, it has everything you might want AND all those things apple refuse to allow you AND widgets. There's nothing I would want that I can't get, but the reverse isn't true.

Wouldn't go backward into apple land if you paid me.

As an 11" Macbook air owner, still no reason to own a tablet, let alone argue the difference between their specs and ecosystems.

Well this has far more pixels to push around, that said not seeing the choice of processor as the issue, just the too low storage.

Well it's a Nexus as much as a Samsung, 350 would be surprising after the Nexus 7 but guess it's possible. Think even 350 too high to gain any traction now.

As for macbook air, well that's nice for you parabolica oO, rather irrelevant to the rest of us though.

I'm not asking you to go back. And I'm not denying the numbers.
Yet, YOU decree: "it has everything you might want "! Why don't you speak for yourself? Or tell me where I can download Garageband for Android? Or a good medical app? Or Thumbjam? etc etc etc etc etc etc
Also: tell me, was life difficult before widgets? ;)
Your preferences are perfectly fine. You are well entitled to them. Just don't distort reality more than Apple have already done. And don't dictate what others should 'want'... it comes across as trolly and bullyish.

Pondlife  Oct. 27, 2012 at 09:51

I'm denying those numbers though. Fairly sure it's not true yet.
Will say you seem somewhat obsessed with garageband tho Jan. Off to Google thumbjam.
Thought their post showed more a lack of understanding what people might want, whereas yours came across as almost bullyish to me...

Bullyish? Nah, I've got nothing to gain by his submission. I'm just bored to tears by trolls who pretend they come in the name of objective truth.
It'd be so much easier for him to say, 'listen - I like and prefer Android because of a, b and c. And if anyone tries to convince me otherwise, kiss my convictions' butt'! I wouldn't argue with that.
But regurgitating half-truths as gospel? Pft...

SO: apologies. I didn't mean to bully.

As to my Garageband 'obsession' - LOL
It's not an obsession. It's just a good example. It's GB's level of 'it simply works beautifully' on its own, and in conjunction with Mac OS... There is nothing like that for Android, except for some Google services...
I'd bring other examples, but Garageband is most widely known, even amongst non-Maccers.

Pondlife  Oct. 27, 2012 at 10:21

Fair enough. Just came across as Jan's Saturday morning bad mood attack on new poster ;)

Anyway as Lewis keeps regurgitating them for Apple it seemed almost like balance ;)

I had the PC version of the software that garageband derived from and discarded it tbh. Read that most android hardware doesn't have the audio latency to do something similar which might explain why Google hasn't bought one of the other companies that made basic PC music software and adapted it in similar way.

Pondlife  Oct. 27, 2012 at 10:24

Read elsewhere that there are versions of this with more than 16gb too briefly flirting with being on topic.
Still wish they'd have micro SD.

Won't make a huge difference, i can guarantee the processor is not the issue as it will definitely scream.

Ill give Google/Samsung the benefit of the doubt for now, as a model with 32GB would be close to acceptable. I still think they realize with their experiment the Nexus 7 that low price points equal to success. I am hoping the omission of large storage options points to low price point, if it does then it wouldn't be so bad.

Pah.....

Was life difficult before dishwashers.... or central locking on cars....... or flat screen TV's....

Its called progress..... something which Apple refuse to embrace... until in a few years time when it will be the big new feature that they have invented :p

you dont need more than 16gb with google i have a nexus 7 all my pics and videos are on google plus , all my music is on google music , that just leaves apps i have plenty of them and still lots of room left over!

moonmonkey  Oct. 27, 2012 at 17:29

My Evo 3d and a notepad. I mean a paper one. What is the real point of a tablet? sigh!

I understand. Same goes for iOS etc yada yada. But some folks (most importantly: ME!)
do not like to rely on some cloud services. I want space space space ....

JanSt / MOD  Oct. 27, 2012 at 17:32

Are there actually any Android apps optimised for tablets, especially one as large as this or are they all stretched out phone apps?

There are some tablet-ised apps (Opera Mini, e.g.), and some tablet-only ones such as Adobe Photoshop Touch...

Your personal opinion doesn't reflect the general consensus of the rest of us. I often load HD Films/TV Show's that are about 1-8GB in size, something that would not be possible with 8GB or very inconvenient with 16GB.

your personal opinion is less important. Have you not got a tv to watch movies on? I tried watching stuff on the go for a min or 2 then thought. no!

Pondlife  Oct. 27, 2012 at 18:50

With apps getting bigger, and games getting to mad sizes (wish they'd limited that more and made the games makers work a bit harder) I see 16gb as too small and 8gb a waste of time.

As for google music make sure it's not caching them on the device if you have a lot of music, had 2gb cached music before I cleared it out.
