According to Bright Side of News, a site which focuses on the semi-conductor industry, Google has prepared a new version of its Nexus 10 that will be shown off at MWC next month. After releasing the original tablet with a dual-core Exynos 5 processor and Mali-T604 GPU, the “general feeling” in the industry was that the tablet was a bit underpowered and that a new version could replace it with a beefed up chipset. 

This rumor suggests that Google’s new Nexus 10 will sport a quad-core processor and new 8-core Mali-T678 GPU. BSN also mentioned that they believe they saw the next-gen tablet in the body of an original Nexus 10 at CES and that the benchmark performance on it was “night and day” compared to the original.

If these sources are correct, the device could be on display at MWC, but may not ship for months – possibly during the back-to-school period. If that’s the case, then I’d guess Google I/O will once again be the target for Google to announce the product, with MWC being nothing more than another back-alley show-off session for the tablet.

Last, and this may or may not be related, but the Nexus 10 is sold out through Google play in both 16GB and 32GB variants.
