EXIF data from Picasa photo suggests 10-inch Nexus tablet

With Google’s Android event coming in just over a week, it isn’t surprising to find that even more rumors about what the company will release are beginning to surface. Today, an image surfaced on Picasa, and the EXIF data shows that it was taken with a Nexus 10. The tablet has been rumored before, and is suspected to be made by Samsung.

Apart from what was already mentioned, the image didn’t reveal much. It had a resolution of 2,560 x 1,920, but could have been resized. SAM Mobile rumors the display to be a 2560 x 1600 299ppi panel, which has been demoed by Samsung before. The SOC is said to be a dual-core Cortex A15 Exynos 5250, which has been in development for quite a while.

As with all the recent Nexus rumors, this latest one should be taken with a grain of salt. There are a few pieces of evidence working together to suggest a 10-inch Samsung Nexus, but nothing as substantial as the evidence for the LG Nexus. I’m not really sure what kind of tablet hardware Google will be dealing with at their event, but I am leaning towards the Nexus 7 variants and not an entirely new tablet from a different manufacturer. We will have to wait and see, but if the 10-inch Samsung Nexus is real, I expect to see it some other time.
