ASUS-made Nexus 10 leaks again, official announcement looks imminent

nexus-10-hangout

Samsung Nexus 10 (2012)

Like the Nexus 7 before it, we’ve been expecting a refresh of the Google Nexus 10 for awhile. We’ve been hearing rumors of Google going with ASUS for the next Nexus 10 since back in August, but it wasn’t until we spotted the device in a PC World computer system that we had something a little more concrete. The 10-inch tab had a list price of £350 in the UK, and unfortunately, a release date wasn’t provided.

Nexus 10 leaked screen shot

Today @evleaks is confirming those rumors of an ASUS-built Nexus 10, showing off yet another screen shot from an unnamed store computer system listing the “Google Asus Nexus 10″. Other than that, little details were given (we were hoping for a list price). It’s expected that Google will unveil the new Nexus 10 during the same event as the soon-to-be-announced Nexus 5.

Current rumors are pointing to an October 14th reveal, but as the clock ticks down (press invites have yet to be sent out), we’re thinking it could be a few weeks later than that.

    Man, you want to talk about bezels!!! Ohhh, but its a Nexus, so humongous bezels are ok.

    • Richard Pawley

      Umm, that’s the Samsung Nexus 10…..from last year.

      • shooter50

        does that make the bezel any smaller?

        • Richard Pawley

          No, it just makes your comment kind of pointless.

          • shooter50

            Commenting on a pointless comment? Brilliant

          • Richard Pawley

            I was attempting to educate in the event that you weren’t just being a mindless troll….but yeah, nevermind.

          • scoter man1

            He’s arguing even though he already knows he’s wrong. Don’t take it to heart brah.

          • Big_EZ

            How? Its a Nexus, and no one said much about that huge bezel.

      • Matt Thompson

        Yup. That’s what the caption says.

        • Richard Pawley

          …now. I’m sure that was a ninja edit afterwards and wasn’t on the original article.

    • Squeak

      To me bezels on a tablet are necessary, because I have to wrap my hand around the front of the device to effectively hold it, where as with a phone I can grasp the left and right edges without touching the front of the device. With that said the Samsung nexus 10′s bezels are a bit extreme.

      • Big_EZ

        In my opinion, 10″ tablets need about a third of the bezel that they’ve all had up to this point.

        • Squeak

          I’m still rocking the Motorola Xoom, and I wouldn’t want the bezels to be any smaller than these. I guess that’s why I’m glad to be an Android fan, we are offered a wide variety of devices to choose from.

          • CerealFTW

            I have a Xoom too and I agree with you that the bezels are perfect. the sheer weight of it is annoying until you get used to it tho

    • CGS

      Any tablet should have a bezel, otherwise it’s impossible for me to comfortably use. And even on phones I like them somewhat because of how I hold phones, I gave back my GS4 for my S3 for mostly that reason.

    • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

      All the better to hold onto a 10-inch tablet my dear.

      • Matt Thompson

        What is “Big Bad Bezels?” I’ll take “Android FTW” for $2000 Derek.

    • http://twitter.com/Vanakatherock Vanakatherock

      I have no issues with bezels on a tablet. Even with the bezel on my current Nexus 10, I still sometimes find a finger from my left hand accidentally touching the screen while I’m navigating with the right hand.

    • Nickan Fayyazi

      Yeah, it’s not like other tablets have equally sized or larger bezels…

      /sarcasm

    • thatcrazyone

      compared to every other tablet at 10 inches i dont see the big diff….

  • Tony Lai

    Take my money already!

  • Ajmcnicol

    Only i can say is that if they dont put front facing speakers, im getting a used OG nexus 10 from ebay instead (nice lower cost as people try to unload them). Snapdragon xyz cpu or xyz amount of ram or not in the new one, the OG one still has really great guts to last me for the next year.

    • ChristianMcC

      I hear that. I wish I had jumped on someone selling the 32GB locally for only $250. Sad day…

  • Clayton Burnett

    Pearl Jam album and new devices on the 14th…I couldn’t be happier!

    • Ajmcnicol

      PJ went downhill since vitalogy.

      • Clayton Burnett

        True…not their best stuff…but a few great songs in every album. They’ve been around a looooong time and you’ve gotta respect that. “Sirens” is a pretty damn good song that they just released off the new album.

      • Matt Thompson

        PJ went down since Ten. Oh, wait…

        No, I stick by that statement.

      • KiwiBri

        For sure!

    • Nick

      The 14th is still a rumor. Remember they were saying the 7th for a while. That’s definitely not happening. I honestly don’t see the 14th happening either. They’d give press at least a 2 weeks notice to get hotels/flights booked and stuff. They’re not just going to spring it on people.

    • Patrick Bateman

      what is pearl jam?

      • polysix

        the next android update after KitKat ;)

        rock on!

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    I wish I like the 10″ form factor. I k ow there are people that do, but after using a 7″ tablet I just can’t go back. Its funny, I like my phones big and my tablets small.

    • http://twitter.com/Vanakatherock Vanakatherock

      I thought the 10″ tablet was too much myself, then I upgraded from the Nexus 7 to the Nexus 10 and haven’t looked back.

      • Nick

        That’s the boat I’m in. I’ve got the N7 but find myself wanting more real estate on my screen.

        • http://twitter.com/Vanakatherock Vanakatherock

          Go for the next Nexus 10. Secondary market sellers are discounting their current Nexus 10 stock so I imagine an announcement is imminent this month for a follow up.

          • polysix

            I have a 2013 nexus 7, no way could I now ‘downgrade’ to the old Nexus 10 (PPI, Brightness, Design) just for size reasons. I also love the 7″ form factor, so comfy for reading and general usage – one hand.

            New Nexus 10 will be better, I’m sure, and be in line with new Nexus 7 on brightness/sharpness but I still think 10″ is a bit cumbersome now.

  • Kyle Cordiano

    Had the Infinity and got the Hisense Sero 7 Pro. I love the 7 inch form factor.

    • Nickan Fayyazi

      Why not the Nexus 7 instead of the Sero 7 Pro?

      • Kyle Cordiano

        I had the Nexus 7 but after hearing the enormous good reviews of the Hisense and they said it is going to get 4.3 this fall, I figured I’d save $100 and get this. Plus I got the two year warranty from Walmart for $15 extra. I have the Nexus 4 so I will have one device with 4.4

        • Nickan Fayyazi

          What about the OG N7? Comparable specs (but better software), and you can get it in mint condition for about $20 more (16GB) or about $40 more (32GB). But I guess the Sero 7 Pro has a few of its own advantages.

          • ChristianMcC

            I’d even say the OG N7 16GB could be had for the same $130 price in my area, used, or at most $20 more for the WiFi 32GB, but some really care about the HDMI out and SD card slot, I guess…..

          • Nickan Fayyazi

            I agree. And yeah, I’ve seen OG N7s for $130; for some reason I thought the Sero 7 Pro was $110. I’ll edit my previous comment, thanks.

          • Kyle Cordiano

            I had rad numerous reports that people’s Nexus 7′s (2012) were becoming very slow and pretty much becoming a paper weight and truthfully my Asus Infinity was getting kind of slow after a year or so so I really did not want to take a chance with the new Nexus.

          • US_Citizen71

            Mine still runs flawless just like day one. You need to stop reading reviews at Apple Insider.

          • osgoodschlotter

            What about the threads on the Google forums?

            http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/nexus/zEqstgT2ZT8

            I have the N4 and love it, and will probably grab the Nexus 5 as well. However, I’m avoiding the tablets until Asus and/or Google address the terrible touchscreen problems. Looks like a hardware grounding issue based on reports, and cannot be resolved with a software update. :(

          • US_Citizen71

            So a guy running a no name test app, that likely is the entire problem is suppose to be a big deal? Show a problem in actual use. Adding a delay component to the test App such as a for to next loop could create exactly what his video shows.

  • Max Carlin

    I have a nexus 7 and love it, but I might order both of these come release.

  • chuckles87

    Looks like I won’t be getting a new nexus tablet well at least this year

    • John Wentworth

      based on no knowledge of the tablet, other than it’s made my asus you’ve decided against it? how absurd.

      • David Gray

        I think he meant due to the event getting pushed back so far…not the manufacturer

      • chuckles87

        Actually yes. I have bought a few Asus products and have had quality issues with every one. I’m not going to get burned by them again. I was really hopeing for Samsung, HTC , or lg

  • Wil Baldwin

    It would be legendary if #Google offered a discounted Nexus bundle this Christmas, for those who want to buy the Nexus 5 and new Nexus 10!

    • Joshua Bailey

      That would be epic.$650-$750 for both?

    • Nick

      I know this will never happen, but that would be epic. I’m planning on the Nexus 10 for sure, but I’ve also been wanting to upgrade from my Galaxy Nexus as well.

  • thatcrazyone

    Me WANT! lol. I cannot wait to see this as I am very much in need for a tablet!

  • David Gray

    God I wish I would’ve jumped on this thing a year ago an now its too late!!! I can’t buy the 2012 nexus 10 a month before the refresh is released, I’d never be able to sleep at night knowing that I just spent $100′s on OLD technology. I will say this I kinda wish they were sticking with Samsung because Sammy makes some great, real bright screens and I always wanted to own a Galaxy tab so with would the best of both worlds BUT I also love Asus..they make great tabs and I have a Zenbook and couldn’t be happier but yea whoever make the comment about the front facing speakers you hit the nail on the head….the new Nexus 10 better have some nice, front facing stereo speaker

  • Mark

    Is it time to upgrade my trusty Xoom??? :-)

  • Eludium Q36

    FTR, 10/29/12 was the G’ event for the Nexus 4 and 10 devices. If (Nexus5 == awesome-tech) then next_cell = Nexus5; else next_cell = GN3
