Sources familiar with Google’s plans for their October 29th announcement event say that Google will unveil an updated Nexus 7, an Android version refresh, and a much-awaited 10-inch Nexus tablet. A 32 GB version of the Nexus 7 will be released with a WiFi and HSPA+ model. Android 4.2 will be ready and retain its Jelly Bean branding, says the source. The most interesting news of the night may be Google’s announcement of a 10-inch tablet created by Samsung.
The Nexus 10, codenamed “Manta,” will feature Android 4.2 and a 2560 x 1600 pixel (iPad dwarfing) resolution. Android 4.2 is expected to be a minor update to Jelly Bean, with security features, minor design changes, and possibly a multi-user interface. Meanwhile, Google and LG are expected to announce their “Nexus 4″ phone. It features Android 4.2, a Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera with a 4.7-inch HD display.
These rumors are starting to solidify, although we wouldn’t rule out a surprise or two for next Monday’s event.
