Google Nexus Foo 10.3-inch tablet may bring a new Nexus naming format

The latest tablet from Google in its Nexus line has leaked sporting the new naming format dubbed Foo.

The device leaked on a GFXBench test measuring the device and showing off its specifications.

This will be the first time a Nexus tablet has been given a name rather than a number. Of course there is a chance this is just a code name for the device for now. Also interesting is the lack of camera, accelerometer, barometer, GPS, compass, light sensor and NFC. These things make us believe this is not the final version of the tablet.

The main processor is a 1.9GHz Tegra 4 quad-core CPU. Perhaps this Nexus Foo unit is simply a text tablet for that processor, hence the lack of sensors and cameras.

Other specs on the Nexus Foo include a 10.3-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Another odd thing here is it doesn't have touch controls, again leading us to believe this is an early version of the tablet which we may not seen finalised for some time. There's 2GB of RAM and 13GB storage. The tablet was tested running Android's KitKat OS.

While this benchmark leak usually means the device is near to arrival, the lack of specs on this make us think it's not nearly finished so we're not holding our breath for a launch anytime soon.
