The Next Web is reporting information from a Google internal video that suggests that we should expect to see multiple Nexus devices announced during their event in New York City on the 29th of this month. These include the Nexus 4 by LG that we’ve seen leaked and leaked again, a 32GB Nexus 7 as well as a 3G variant of the Nexus 7, and a Samsung-built Nexus 10. All these devices are expected to be released running Android 4.2.
A quick recap: the Nexus 4 will be based off the LG Optimus G, with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, a 4.7″ 1280×768 screen, and much the same specs as the Optimus G but with a redesigned enclosure.
There’s not too much to say about the new Nexus 7 32GB, except that it seems that it will be sold at the same price point at which the 16GB model is currently being sold. The 3G variant is a little more interesting, but at this point we do not know what frequencies will be available and whether it will be compatible with Australian 3G bands.
The Nexus 10 is the most intriguing of the bunch. It’s rumoured to have a 10″ display with a mind-blowing 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, giving a pixel density well above that of even the new iPad’s display. Given the insane resolution, it’s also very likely that we’ll see the next-generation Exynos 5 Dual chipset (Exynos 5250) inside, featuring a 2 GHz dual-core Cortex-A15 processor and ARM Mali T604 graphics embedded.
This report is interesting within the context of the “multiple Nexuses” rumour
that we’ve been following for a while. It’s possible that we’ll see all these devices being sold through the Play Store as with the current Nexus 7.
Are you tempted by any of these devices? I’m seriously interested in the Nexus 10 – but let us know your thoughts in the comments!
