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?
