After the launch of the much-hyped Google Nexus 5, two images have surfaced online claiming to be the next-gen Nexus 10, manufactured by LG.

The first image, displayed on the Reddit forum, shows a Telefonica press render. The image shows a front screen of a black coloured tablet, with rounded edges and a speaker grill. Below the image, it also displays that the tablet shown above is Nexus 10 and will be available for £299 (Rs. 30,000 approx.). The tablet is also seen sporting the latest Google experience launcher, which is till now a Google Nexus 5 exclusive.

The second image on the forum shows the codename for the device - LG-V510. The original post has been removed from the forum, however, it has been hinted that the tablet will go on sale from 22 November, along with the LTE version in both black and white options.

If the rumours are true, the Google Nexus 10 release is expected to clash with the launch of rivals Nokia's Lumia 2520 tablet.

There are no confirmed news about the specifications of the Nexus 10 but it has been noted that the device might feature a 10in screen with 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution along with 300ppi, a customary Snapdragon 800 chipset, 3GB RAM, paired with the Android 4.4 Kitkat OS, 8 megapixel rear and 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera. The device is also rumoured to arrive with a massive 9,000mAh battery, the highest sported by any device till now, according to Pocket Lint.

It has been also revealed that Telefonica has contacted Pocket-Lint only to confirm that the latest Nexus 10 tablet press renders are not from them. "This is not a Telefonica image and we are not aware of a new Nexus 10,"it claimed.

Since the press renders can easily be faked, the validity of the image is yet to be confirmed.
