Google Nexus 10 2 rumor of being released as Black Friday deals can’t be authenticated

The rumor that the Google Nexus 10 2 will be released on Black Friday has been doing the rounds since long, though there hasn’t been any solid information to authenticate the news.

With Google being tight lipped about it, Android watchers are starting to consider the other possibilities. It could be that the purposed iPad Air foe will not join in with the rush, but instead opt for a silent launch via the Google Play Store.

The following speculations about the features of the device have been circling the market. The Nexus 10 is expected to have a 10.1-inch super PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen which displays 16 million colors and has a 299 ppi pixel density.

The device would have a Gorilla Glass 2 coating to protect against scratches and would support multi-touch input. On the other hand, the Nexus 10 2 is rumored to have the exact same display, except with a very small upgrade to Gorilla Glass 3. The new Nexus 10 screen is speculated to be identical to its predecessor.

The first Nexus 10 comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is ready for the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade immediately. The Nexus 10 2 would possibly be released with the updated OS, Android 4.4 KitKat.

While the Nexus 10 has a form of 263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9 mm, 603 g, the dimensions and weight of the next iteration of the series is still a mystery. The Nexus 10 2 is expected to be released Q4 of 2013 for the price of $561.45.
