Samsung-made Nexus 11 in the making

Nexus 11

Only days ago Samung unveiled its latest 7 inch tablet in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, and now it seems that the Korean company is striking again, revealing the Nexus 11 tablet as a follow up to the Nexus 10.

The device, like the Nexus 10, will be made by Samsung, and will be the world’s first tablet to feature an octa-core processor, as used in the Samsung Galaxy S4. It will also, as you might have guessed, sport an 11 inch screen, and an 8MP rear facing camera. Some speculators are suggesting that the tablet will also allow users to extend the internal memory by offering a MicroSD card slot.

Samsung seems to have its finger in many pies at the moment, with its Samsung Galaxy S4 and brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet entering the market.

Samsung has also expressed its plans to continue to release other tablet devices in addition to the Nexus 11, including the Samsung Tab 11, which shares many of the specifications as the Nexus, though with a slightly inferior dual-core processor. A Samsung Galaxy Tab 8 also looks like it’s in the works to mimic the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which was unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Other rumours suggest that Samsung is planning to release a dual-SIM tablet with similar specs as the Galaxy Tab 3. The device will have a 7 inch screen, a 3MP camera and will be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Duos.

So it looks like Samsung is showing no signs of slowing down the production of its smartphone and tablet devices this year; compared to Apple’s minimalistic approach to releasing new devices, Samsung seems to be churning out new handsets left, right and centre. 

So will Samsung slowly but surely take over the mobile and tablet scene? It looks likely!
