Tech sources have revealed that ditching its biggest partner Samsung, Google is opting ASUS to build the second generation of Nexus tablets.
Earlier, the first generation was built together by Samsung and ASUS with software support from the search engine giant.
However after ASUS’s sole production of Nexus 7 2, Google is likely to give the sole contract to ASUS to build Nexus 10 2.
After a boom in smartphone and tablets category, Google stepped into the market last year with smartphone Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablet. Both of the devices drew attention of a large audience across the globe due to low cost, high tech, and pleasant specs.
The built-in latest operating system from Google is an attractive thing for most of the buyers of the line.
In the first generation tablet, which hit the market with a 10″ 2560 x 1536 pixel display, Google made Samsung its partner.
However, the game is changing for Samsung this time.
“ASUS proved to Google that it is capable of keeping up with the speed of Android by creating hardware that allows Google to keep the price of the devices close to last year’s pricing,” reports iTechPost quoting Geek.
The Google Nexus 10 2 tablet release date is likely to be in fall this year.
