Google Nexus 10 leaked image

Google’s second-ever branded tablet, Nexus 10, has been sighted again in a leaked clip, this time giving us a very, very brief glimpse of the forthcoming slate's lock and home screens.

The five-second footage is not exactly a full hands-on, but a teaser as to what we can expect from the Big G’s first ‘full-sized’ tablet that was supposed to be officially showcased today at a New York press event before it was cancelled due to a hurricane warning.

Made by Samsung rather than Asus, which produced the highly rated Nexus 7, the Nexus 10 is expected to feature 10.1-inch display of 2560 x 1600 resolution, with an notable 299 pixels per inch (ppi) density that’s ahead of even the iPad’s Retina display at 264ppi. On the back you’ll find a five-megapixel camera (a front-facer is also present).

Under the glossy exterior, meanwhile, sits a dual-core Exynos 5250 chipset with two Cortex-A15 cores at 1.7GHz and a powerful Mali-T604 graphics processor. There is also 2GB of RAM, a mico HDMI port, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC support.

Pricing is still unknown, but if you put much faith in rumours it could be anywhere in the $350-$500 region. Although we reckon $400 would be the sweet spot for most buyers as it stacks up against Apple's recently announced fourth-generation iPad and Microsoft’s Surface tablet, which landed last week.

Google’s event would have also seen the unveiling of new handsets in the Nexus range from LG, Samsung and Sony, as the search giant moves away from its single handset per year approach to level the playing field for several Android manufacturers.

Stay tuned for more Nexus-related news in the days to come.
