Details of the Google Nexus 11 tablet have leaked online along with other Samsung devices.
Like the current Android tablet, it will be made by Samsung and be the world's first octa-core tablet, according to SamMobile.
The Nexus 11, subject to Google's approval, will have an 11in Super PLS screen and use Samsung's Exynos 5410 octa-core processor which is found in some global variants of the Galaxy S4 smartphone. Other specs include an 8-megapixel rear facing camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera and a rumoured microSD card for 64GB cards.
The Nexus 11 will rival the iPad 4 and quite possibly the iPad 5 when it arrives.
Samsung is also interested in releasing plenty more of its own tablets under the usual Galaxy branding. The firm has just announced the Galaxy Tab 3 which will go on sale this month.
Similar to the Nexus 11 is the Galaxy Tab 11 which has the same specifications apart from its Exynos 5250 dual-core A15 processor. A Galaxy Tab 8.0 looks like it will be a tablet version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 phablet, with an 8in Full HD screen, 5-megapixel camera and an Exynos 4412 quad-core A9 processor.
Last but not least, Samsung wants to introduce a dual-SIM device called the Galaxy Tab Duos 7.0. This will have two SIM-card slots, a 7in LCD screen, 3-megapixel camera and a dual-core processor. It's effectively a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Tab 3.
SamMobile said Samsung might cancel a new generation of the Galaxy Note 10.1 because of weak sales.
