CNET released a report this evening indicating Google is working on a 10″ tablet with Samsung.
The Nexus 10 is rumored to have a 2,560 x 1,600 screen. This would give it a PPI (pixels per inch) of 299. For reference the iPad 3 has a PPI of 264, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a PPI of 267, and the iPhone 5 has a PPI of 326. The 299 PPI would be the highest of any tablet.
No details on the processor were released, but either the Exynos 4412/Mali-400 combo from the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 2 or the Exynos 5 Dual would be good guesses. The Exynos 5 Dual is a Cortex A-15 based chip that is paired with a Mali-604 GPU and would provide substantial power for the new tablet.
The report also indicated Google and ASUS would release a $99 Nexus 7 in time for Christmas. Google could use the $99 Nexus 7 to counter the impending iPad Mini release.
Look for more potential details at the AllThingsD: Dive into Mobile conference at the end of October.
Remember this benchmark from September showing a Dual-core 1.7Ghz chip with a Mali-604 being tested? The resolution doesn’t match up with the rumored Nexus 10, but it does show Samsung has been testing the new Exynos 5 Dual for a couple months now. Make it happen Google!
