Google to unveil new tablet from Samsung

By CBR Staff Writer

Google is planning to unveil a new tablet from Samsung, a new phone from LG and an updated operating system during its upcoming event on 29 October 2012 in New York, US.

The search engine is also expected to unveil a new Google Nexus phone and a new version of its existing Nexus 7 tablet that will add more memory and 3G capabilities.

The most exciting product will be a 10-inch tablet developed with Samsung codenamed ‘Manta’, according to The Telegraph.

Expected to be called Nexus 10, the device, with a 10-inch display, will feature 2560×1600 pixels resolution and a 300 ppi pixel density display, offering more than the latest iPad display, which has a 264 ppi pixel density display.

The LG Nexus 4 mobile handset will feature a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon processor, 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera (and 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper) and a 2100mAh battery.

Google will extend its Nexus 7 range with a 32 GB version of the device in order to distract the concentration of customers from Microsoft and its Windows Phone 8 smartphones and Windows 8/Windows RT tablets which will be launched on 26 October.

Google’s event’s tagline is ‘The playground is open’, causing a speculation that it will feature a range of devices.
