Google Nexus 10 Samsung built, with Retina-beating display?

Thumbnail image for nexus-7-tablet.jpgThe ASUS-built Google Nexus 7 charmed all who tried it earlier this year, delivering an affordable 7-inch Android tablet experience without scrimping on the specs. But if the latest rumours are to be believed, Google are now turning to Samsung to deliver the goods on the 10-inch Samsung Nexus 10.

According to Android Community sources, Samsung are readying a tablet with a screen resolution of 2,560 x 1,600. If the tablet does indeed land with that resolution in that size, you’re looking at a display with a 299 ppi pixel density, smashing the 9.7 inch iPad’s 2,048 x 1,536, 264 ppi pixel density.

The tablet is also said to feature a brightness boosting “outdoor-viewing mode”, pushing the brightness levels to 600cd/m2. For anyone whose struggled with glare in strong light outside with LCD screens, this could prove a real selling point.

Low pricing for the Nexus 7 was a big boon for that tablet, and though there’s none announced yet for the Nexus 10, we struggle to see it dipping so low if a screen like that features.

Will keep you up to date with news on the Nexus 10 as it trickles in.
