Google Nexus 10 benchmark reveals Android 4.2, 2560 x 1600 display, Exynos 5 Dual CPU

by: Chris SmithOctober 26, 2012

Earlier today we saw that Google’s own Vic Gundotra shared photos from a Nexus 10 device, and now we have benchmarking results for the upcoming tablet.

AndroidOS spotted the Google Nexus 10 tablet on GL Benchmarks listed as the “manta,” a codename we’ve seen in the recent weeks. While it was initially believed the Manta could be a Motorola Nexus tablet, the codename most likely describes Samsung’s upcoming 10-inch Nexus tablet.

According to the benchmarking site, the Nexus 10 will feature a 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos 5 Dual processor, which was revealed by the presence of the Mali T604 GPU. The same combo is used in Samsung’s 2012 Chromebooks, and has been spotted in a recent leak that detailed a yet-to-be-released Samsung GT-B9150 device.

Other specs and features include 2560 x 1600 display resolution, again confirming previous reports, and Android 4.2 OS, which also fits nicely with recent leaks on Google’s plans for the October 29 media event.

We’ll be back with more Nexus 10 related news once the device becomes official – it won’t be long now, as we’re just a few days away from the Google’s official announcement.

Anyone excited about the Google Nexus 10?

    hey hey hey!! i just pre-ordered SGN2, what gives!!

  • To the user below, the note and the nexus 10 are tottally different devices, one is a tablet, one is a phablet…

      Note 10.1 isn’t a tablet!?

    All that, plus 2gb ram and NEW camera software in 4.2. Hope that new camera software makes its way to my GNEX real fast!

  • The lawsuit proofed design of the Nexus 10 is also revealed! Ugly as hell.

    ATTENTION: The following images may contain disturbing images!

      You hit the nail right on the head. No way Apple is going to sue over the looks of this tablet.

    Was thinking about getting this but nope, don’t like the design. Will get the 32GB Nexus 7 instead.

    Dual core will be a fail… unless nexus devices start to be the same specs as manufacturers flagship devices they won’t sell in great numbers…

    • Number of cores is irrelevant. CPU architecture is way more important. In fact, the less cores the better if you can make up for it with faster per core improvements.

      The dual-core Exynos 5 in this thing is Cortex-A15 based (the first A15 chip to market). It will more than double the performance of any prior dual core chip and at 1.7GHz with the Mali 604 GPU will destroy the Tegra 3 (and I’m a Tegra fanboy). The number of cores matters, the speed of the chip matters, but what matters most is the efficiency of the chip (how much work it does each cycle)…and the Exynos 5 is a VERY hard worker. Hope this helps clear things up…with core numbers and GHz it can all get pretty muddy.
