Samsung will reportedly announce a new version of the Nexus 10 CES 2014 in a few days, Digitimes says, without disclosing sources for its report. Samsung happens to be the manufacturer of the original Nexus 10 tablet that launched in late 2012, a device that’s currently out of stock with some U.S. retailers. Samsung’s new Nexus 10 is rumored to pack an AMOLED display. The South Korean Android device maker had been rumored back in late July to be working on the next-generation Nexus 10 tablet, although more recently, companies including Asus and LG have also been reported to make the device.

The recent rumors suggesting LG would make the next Nexus 10 turned out to be inaccurate, as the company ended up launching an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition tablet version instead. However, the same Digitimes report says LG will unveil new tablet products in Las Vegas, alongside Asus and Lenovo, which will display new offerings of their own. Asus will reportedly showcase various new products featuring support for dual Windows 8.1 / Android operating systems, while Lenovo is said to announce a second-generation Yoga Android tablets.

Finally, the Taiwan-based publication says that Samsung will also unveil its new Exynos 6 mobile eight-core processor series that will feature 64-bit support. Samsung has already teased Exynos-related announcements for this year’s CES edition, and is rumored to unveil various additional tablet models, including a bigger 12.2-inch model. Interestingly though, these recent reports about unreleased Samsung tablets have not mentioned any details about the company developing a tablet for Google, let alone announcing one at the CES.
