Updated Google Nexus 10 coming from Samsung in “near future”

Google NexusFollowing the announcement of the Google Nexus 7 (2013) tablet yesterday (along with Android 4.3), Sundar Pichai who heads up the Chrome and Android teams, told The Wall Street Journal‘s Amir Efrati that Google planned to update the Nexus 10 in the “near future.”

Needless to say, details about the new Nexus 10 are few at this point in time. Pichai would only say that it will once again be made by Samsung.

Samsung is reportedly working on some larger tablets, including a 12.2-inch Android model. A separate report back in April suggested that Samsung was already working on a Nexus 11 tablet with an 11-inch display and a octa-core processor (perhaps the new Exynos 5420?).

Perhaps Google will do what it did last year when it unveiled Android 4.2 Jelly Bean alongside the Nexus 4 smartphone and the Nexus 10 tablet. Only this year, we would get Android 4.0 Key Lime Pie, the oft-rumoured Nexus 5 and the new Nexus 10 (or larger) tablet.
