A Nexus 11 coming?

nexus_10_large-full-frontalThere’s a new rumour hitting the web regarding the next generation Nexus Tablet from Samsung. Supposedly, Samsung is working on the Nexus 11, which will actually be an 11-Inch Premium style tablet. We’ve heard mention about this previously, but today we have a few more specs supposedly leaked. Here’s the skinny:

  • 11-inch Super PLS TFT display
  • 8-megapixel rear camera & a 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • A microSD slot
  • Samsung’s Exynos 5 octa-core processor (this was rumored previously)
  • Most likely Android 5.0

What is obviously new about this is the odd 11-inch display. If this intel is accurate, we may be seeing three new Nexus style tablets this year. Earlier rumours suggested a new generation Nexus 10 and Nexus 7. Of course, if Samsung is doing a Nexus 11, it may instead replace the Nexus 10 in the lineup. What do you guys think of a tablet this size?
