Samsung Nexus 10 Poses For Massive Photoshoot, Shows Off Android 4.2 as Well

Samsung Nexus 10

Well, the mystery is now over. Brief Mobile just posted up a massive gallery of the Samsung Nexus 10, along with screenshots from the software its running, which as expected, is Android 4.2.

It’s definitely the device that we saw posted up in a user manual yesterday, sports a super high-resolution display, front speakers, front and rear cameras, and looks extra-bubbly, which could mean it’ll feel great in hand. The specs are listed below, but it’s definitely running an Exynos 5 dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, NFC, and is WiFi only.

On the software side of things, Android 4.2 is still Jelly Bean, but includes a bunch of new goodies, like multi-user support, a Quick Settings menu for toggling off WiFi or switching between users, new camera software (Thank the lord!), and some other minor visual tweaks.

Here are the specs:

  • Samsung Exynos 5250
    • Clocked at 1.7 GHz
    • Dual-core Cortex-A15
    • Mali-T604 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage (other options possible)
  • 10.1-inch Super AMOLED display
    • 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution
    • 298.9 pixels-per-inch
  • 5-megapixel rear-facing camera
    • LED flash
  • Front-facing camera
  • NFC
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Dual speakers located on front of device

    I don’t really have any interest in purchasing this, but I am glad to finally see an A15 CPU in something.
    Seriously has me considering passing on the DNA, and waiting for this Exynos 5, or OMAP5 with a 1080p screen. Can’t be too far away..

  • nightscout13

    Bezel too thick, and location of home button is ugly. Honeycomb style UI was better. putting the controls in the middle makes them easy to touch accidentally.

  • Michael Yuen

    Awww man… no GPS?

  • SeanBello

    also, that thing has the mobile device equivalent of roast beef curtains

  • SeanBello

    great specs, but that thing is hideous and the price is going to be just as bad

  • David Henry

    5MP camera again? Is Samsung learning nothing?

  • My only wish would be pen input, but I doubt we’d see that on a Nexus.

  • “Dual speakers located on front of device” HELLZ YES!!!!

  • Joshhud

    Is it just me or does this thing look beat the hell up?

  • Tyson Young

    I feel like the top and bottom bars reduce display area.

  • TheDrunkenClam

    the bezel is way too big….

  • Ethan

    Dual-core…. seriously….. Samsung, WHY? Everything else about this is top-of-the-line and you throw in a worse (IMHO) processor than the Nexus 7, which is half the price. I simply don’t understand. It’s the equivalent of buying a Rolls Royce with an I-4 engine.

    • Ibrick

      Exynos 5 dude..
      As in a true A15 SoC, paired with the Mali 600, I’m curious how it stacks up against the S4 Pro personally.

      • Ethan

        Don’t get me wrong- the Exynos 5 is pretty G-D impressive. I was just saying that it seems like Samsung is trying to go top-end specs on this and the A15 seems slightly underpowered compared to other options they had. If this SOC works on this device as well as they’re hyping it, then that’s a definite win for Samsung!

  • looks like dick

  • PowersUSA

    Not the prettiest device but if it comes in around $400 with 32GB then it I will be all over it.

  • joejoe5709

    Oooo. Quick controls on the camera? Perrrrfect. Love it. Can’t wait for 4.2!!

  • TheDrunkenClam

    No quad core? slightly disappointed

  • ddevito

    The color and bezel will give Nexus a bad name. ugh

  • Alan Ng

    omg og. omg omg.-! amazing.

  • Jess B.

    Take my money!!

  • I feel like they have the button orientation wrong. Shouldn’t the buttons be near your thumb when in landscape mode, ie. on the right/left of the screen rather than at the bottom?

  • gambit07

    I’m sorry because I love nexus devices, but DAMN that bezel is fugly

  • FarmerTechno

    Next evolution of Android: movable nav bar. Lock it to one of the 4 sides or allow default behavior, depending on preference.

  • Patrick Cedrowski

    Is it me or does Android not look that great in landscape mode? That nav bar at the bottom contains only 3 buttons and yet takes up so much space. Whatever happened to the traditional tablet UI?

    • ddevito

      it’s not you it looks terrible

  • John Simonelli

    I’d Rather have a Padfone 2

  • chris125

    Well apple won’t sue this because its damn ugly lol. Nice specs tho

  • Massive bezel… looks like a new Kindle Fire… ugh…

  • Dan Churco

    This thing is F’in Ugly….. I know they don’t want to get sued for a rectange with round corners, but come on!

  • PSU_DI

    So the tablet layout is gone completely in 4.2 ??

    • ddevito

      I hope not but it sure looks that way doesn’t it?

  • FortitudineVincimus

    No GPS (yes, I do want GPS in a tablet thanks).

    Anymore, 16gb is pretty anemic. You can burn through that quick, especially when you only really get about 12 to use. a few Nandroid backup can burn 3-5gb.

  • PalmerAdam

    For the love of god please don’t let it be brown! I hope its just the bad lighting

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Looks like Asus “champagne” which is a good color.

  • Don’t like the rounded corners at all… looks fat n ugly!

  • Nick

    Wasn’t the point of on-screen navigation buttons supposed to give you a bigger screen? Those nav buttons make the screen seem so small.

  • This will be my next Tablet.

  • Sirx

    Yes, Kellex. Yes it is.

  • Great specs, and i’m usually not a big ‘design’ freak at all, but what’s with a gigantic bezel in late 2012? Yech.

  • Diablo81588

    Wow that is UGLY! Leave it to Samsung…

  • At $299 it will be HUGE… Ugly or not…

  • TheWenger

    Stoked about AMOLED.

  • The Doctor

    Oh look…..Android v4.2 is still Jelly Bean. No offense to the editor of this website, but could you at least have some kind of basic understanding of how the software wold works moving forward and stop pushing garbage rumors with no validity. v4.0 is Jelly Bean, therefore anything that is till within the vein of that REV (4.1.2, 4.2, 4.X, etc, etc) will be a Jelly Bean product. When you see v5.X…That will be Key Lime Pie. For months I havehad to see you publish 4.2 as a rumored Key Lime Pie. Now that you have been educated, I hope you drop your line of thinking

    • TheFirstUniverseKing

      4.2 could have been Key Lime Pie, in the same way 2.2 was Froyo and 2.3 was Gingerbread. When has Kellex ever said that he was 100% positive that 4.2 was going to be Key Lime Pie anyway?

      • I haven’t, and clearly this guy has no idea what he’s talking about. To add to Will’s comment, Ice Cream Sandwich would also like to have a chat with “TheDoctor.”

        • It seems “TheDoctor” is gonna need some medication for that verbal a$$ whoopin’.

          • Bob G

            It is sad that “TheDoctor” is giving The Doctor a bad name

    • will bartlett

      froyo and gingerbread would like to have a talk with you.

    • 4.0 is Ice Cream Sandwich you moron.

    • There is plenty of information and facts to supply to show that “The Doctor” doesn’t have a clue; but that would be a waste of time. Needless to say, he’s a moron…

  • droidomega

    THEY SCREWED UP THE UI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Busta

    Does it have 5 GHz wifi?

    • JoshGroff

      It better has all the WiFis.

  • DatterBoy

    These pictures need to be a little bigger.

  • user311

    ipad who? what? I welcome our new Google Overlords.

  • brando56894

    I’ll stick with my N7 thank you.

  • yummy

    Yes, I believe they made me an
    offer I cannot refuse

  • Leo

    Sweet this might be the one I get

  • JMonkeYJ

    looks very nice, but i have to admit to being a little bummed that they’ve decided to give up on the Honeycomb UI. i guess this UI is simpler and maybe easier for people to understand, but i thought the HC-style UI, which was more like a traditional desktop UI, was a lot more powerful.

  • JoshHenry


  • Greg Buxton

    I really dislike that it’s showing the Phone UI and not the Honeycomb/ICS/Jellybean 10″ tablet UI.

    • bakdroid

      This is the way it should have always been. Less confusing, less user error.

  • Aaron

    Not a big fan of huge bezel. Although I do hope that Google’s entire speech about the nexus 10 centers around how the 10.1 screen space is FAR superior to 7.9 or 9.7, ha.

    • Agreed on the bezel, I wasn’t expecting crazy thin, but that is more substantial than I thought it would be.
