There will be no Google Nexus 10 2 release date as the company has recently rolled out an updated version of the first-generation tablet.
The 2012 variant of the Nexus 10 earlier disappeared from Google Play Store and was changed to "Coming Soon." This has led to speculations that the successor of Nexus 10 tablet will arrive soon. But the Nexus 10 made a comeback in the Play Store with Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS in tow.
