Samsung made Nexus 10 successor is coming “in the near future”

Samsung logoIf you saw the new Nexus 7 yesterday and said, "nah, not big enough," Google's Sundar Pichai just dropped a news tidbit that may be of interest to you. The Chrome and Android boss apparently told the Wall Street Journal's Amir Efrati that a new Nexus 10 tablet is coming "in the near future," though Pichai didn't give Efrati much more detail than that.

Perhaps this news is not surprising—the current Nexus 10 was introduced in November of last year, and it's pretty common for Nexuses and other phones and tablets to be replaced by newer models on or near their first birthdays. Whether the tablet will be joined by a successor to the Nexus 4 or a version of Android newer than 4.3 is anybody's guess. Google has always used new Nexus hardware as an excuse to showcase new Android versions, but the company's approach to Android updates is clearly in a state of flux right now.

Samsung Nexus 10

The new tablet will still apparently be made by Samsung, which Google partnered with to make the current Nexus 10. Google also stuck with the same company (Asus) to produce both versions of the Nexus 7, and it has partnered with Samsung previously on both the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus smartphones.
