While there has been plenty of information and images of the rumored Nexus 5 trickling out, a successor to last year’s Nexus 10 hasn’t received the same treatment. A few weeks ago, Twitter’s favorite leaker @evleaks confirmed legitimacy when it showed up on a system file in the United Kingdom. So leave it to him to shed some more light on the refreshed device. Earlier today he tweeted out an image (above) that defines clearly who will be manufacturing the device. Also, he said that we are “getting closer…” which he probably means to an announcement. ASUS will be teaming up with Google yet again to create this year’s edition of the Nexus 10.
Google is moving away from Samsung manufacturing the 10-inch tablet. The Korean manufacturer has been releasing a huge amount of tablets and can even be credited, to an extent, with Android’s overthrowing of the iPad in sales for Q2 of 2013. At this time it is unknown what the specifications will be for the ASUS-made Nexus 10.
