A lot of Google fans were waiting for the next generation of Nexus 10 tablet. However, Google was elusive when it comes to revealing whether they still have plans of launching the successor of its 10-inch tablet.
Currently, Google has its hands full as it is working on new Nexus devices such as the Nexus 8 tablet and Nexus 6 smartphone. Both devices were speculated to make an appearance at the upcoming I/O tech event scheduled in June. Google Nexus 8 will replace the Nexus 7 slab as the company realized that there is not much competition in the 8-inch market as compared in the 7-inch category. Google Nexus 6 smartphone is the successor of the current Nexus 5 handset that garnered a large following due to its note-worthy specs and features paired with a friendly price tag.
Moreover, Google has been exerting more effort into its Android operating system. According to Android Origin, the company is already working on the 4.4.3 version of its mobile software that will herald bug fixes brought about by the previous version. The Android 4.4.3 Kitkat OS was expected to be revealed in June at the same event.

The tablet will be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage variants.
Meanwhile, some of Google Nexus 10 2 rumoured features are 10.1-inch size with a 2560 x 1600 resolution and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, there will be 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor or the NVIDIA Tegra 4, 3GB RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. For storage, there will be the standard 16 and 32 GB variants.
