Google and Samsung Electronics have reportedly teamed up to launch a high-end media tablet, which is expected to carry Nexus brand-name. Unlike the Nexus 7", the novelty will have 10" screen with pixel density that will be higher than that of the Apple's third-generation iPad.

"It is going to be a high-end device, in contrast with Google's $199 Nexus 7 and upcoming $99 tablet. They will partner with Samsung and co-brand it with Samsung," said Richard Shim, an analyst at NPD DisplaySearch, in a conversation with Cnet News web-site.

The new Nexus 10" media tablet from Google and Samsung will have screen with 2560*1600 resolution and 299ppi [pixels per inch] pixel density, which is higher compared to Apple's 2048*1536 resolution and 264ppi. At present it is unclear what kind of system-on-chip will power the forthcoming media tablet, but it should clearly feature a graphics sub-system that should be more powerful than that of Apple A5X SoC, which features quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU and dual-channel LPDDR2 memory controller.

The two companies - Google and Samsung - already have experience of creating devices together. For example, Samsung sells Galaxy Nexus smartphone, jointly created with Google. What remains to be seen is whether Samsung will be capable of supplying enough Nexus 10" tablets as it is projected to be the only supplier of high-end screens for the device. By contract, Apple sources third-gen iPad screens from three makers.

Google and Samsung did not comment on the news-story.
