Nexus 10 has specs & images leak, Android 4.2 out there, Nexus 4 gets left at a bar
It appears as though the Nexus series leaks are really heating up at an incredible pace.
We’ll start off with the smaller story. While we all already know so very much about the Nexus 4, there’s been another little twist to the tale arise. It appears that just a few weeks before the Nexus 4 started doing its rounds on the Internet, a Google employee mistakenly left a SIM-free N4 at a bar in San Francisco.
Sound familiar? Like, say, Apple’s iPhone 4 ‘leak.’ Anyway, there’s not much more to the story but a fanciful tale that involves guns, barmaids, music gigs and a police station – you can read the full story over on Wired. To get the full details on the Nexus 4, check out our pieces on images, specs or even a review – it’s all out there.
THE NEXUS 10
Brief Mobile has the goods and has shown us a whole lot of information about the Nexus 10. We now have our hands on images, specs and details about some new features on Android 4.2. The Nexus 10 looks to be a bit of an odd looking device, that in my eyes doesn’t have the sleek and “cool” factor that Apple and UK judges have been speaking about. However, the source from BM says that the device has a nice grip with a brushed aluminium feel, as well as being incredibly light – sounds good to me!
Here’s the specs that we know from BM:
- 1.7GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 5250
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB internal storage (other options possible)
- 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution
- 298.9 pixels-per-inch
- 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash
- Front-facing camera
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Dual speakers located on front of device
There’s no micro-SD slot, but that has to be expected by now for all Nexus devices. Other than that, this is a tablet. On to the software.
THE SOFTWARE – ANDROID 4.2 JELLY BEAN
From the leak it appears that the Nexus 10 is in fact running on Android 4.2, which is being tipped as keeping the Jelly Bean branding. The software has had some minor improvements, like a Quick Settings bar (that we’ve seen hints of before), a new Gallery application and multiple user profiles. Besides for that, it looks like it’s continuing the soft key feel, standard 4.0+ app tray and more.
As with any rumour, grain of salt. But this is looking pretty good to me.
