After the success of 7 inch tablet, Google will launch 10 inch tablet Nexus early 2013. Here we take a look at its expected specs

Amid the rumors encircling a Google and LG partnership for the next Nexus phone, a key tech analyst has predicted the chance for a 10-inch high-end Nexus tablet from Samsung. The NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim has come up with the forecast. He has told to the CNET that a 10-inch Nexus tablet is in the works at some Samsung factories.

The tablet is to come with a display that has a whopping 2560 x 1600 pixels at 299ppi. It will make the device get a higher resolution than the Retina display-powered new iPad. The tablet will possibly mount a quad core chipset, better RAM and other top end features such as 4G LTE, longer battery and more. But, Mr. Shim has not given any details about the innards of the tablet.

There is no word on the potential price and release date of the larger Nexus tablet. Google currently has the 7-inch Nexus 7, which was made by the Taiwan tech maker ASUSTeK. The device hit the stores with the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The rumored 10-inch Nexus tablet may come with a new version of the firmware. Maybe, it will be Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie.

“Although there was no word of any potential Nexus 10 pricing, it’s likely to set you back a packet more than the cheap-and-cheerful Google Nexus 7,” says TechRadar. Well, it looks that Google will be having a nice offering for its larger version. It will likely be affordable than the iPad and other Samsung tablets like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Note 10.1.

The Next Nexus Gadget
With the year-end is coming up, rumors have no relax on the next Nexus device from Google. The web giant usually surfaces a new Nexus phone in the fall. We received Samsung Galaxy Nexus in October 2011. Hence, tech world looks for an upgrade for the handset this fall also. Already we have received a Nexus tablet this year thanks to Nexus 7. But, fans seem to have not satisfied with this and they are looking for a phone upgrade also.

There is a dominant rumor that Google is working with LG this time to launch a new Nexus phone. The device may possibly be named Google Optimus Nexus and it will come out with the rumored new Android version. Some sources think that it may be just the rebranding of the LG’s already announced Optimus G quad core handset. There is also an argument that Google is working with HTC to unveil a phablet, the next Nexus phone.

The Taiwan tech maker is reportedly working with a 5-inch One X 5. If HTC makes the next Nexus phone as per rumors, we may get a Google Nexus 5. HTC is the company that produced the first version of the Nexus series, dubbed the Nexus One, which premiered Android 2.2 Froyo more than a couple of years back. Two later models – Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus – were produced by Samsung.

Final Thoughts
What is more exciting about the new Nexus device rumors is the fact that the gadget will get a new Android version apart from the just released Jelly Bean. Google has launched all its previous Nexus devices with a fresh version of Android. Some analysts predict that it will be just an incremental update to the Jelly Bean called Android 4.1.2. At the same time, some other sources say that it will be a slight upgrade to Jelly Bean, dubbed Android 4.2 or codenamed Key Lime Pie. The new Android version is hoped to show off lots of nice features including a customized notification center and more.
