Samsung appears to have outdone the competition with its new Nexus 10 tablet.
The 10-inch device features a display that not only rivals the retina screen found on the iPad 4, but outdoes it in many ways.
In terms of picture quality, the Nexus 10 has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 with 300ppi on a 10-inch Super AMOLED screen. It also has 4 million pixels.
The retina display found on the iPad 4 is slightly less powerful having a resolution of 2048 x 1536 with 264 ppi on a 9-inch screen. It also has 3 million pixels.
Google announced the Nexus 10 on Monday and will begin shipping the new high-end tablet on Nov. 13.
The device was scheduled to be unveiled at a media event in NYC that ended up being canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.
The company decided to spill the beans on the Nexus 10 over the internet instead.
"The newest tablet from Google and Samsung's joint efforts, Nexus 10, is a powerful device that marries Samsung's best-in-class hardware, the latest version of Android 4.2, JellyBean, and the best of Google," wrote the company in the press release.
"With the world's highest resolution tablet display, all new multi-user support, immersive HD content and the best Google apps- Nexus 10 has something for everyone," continued Google.
Specifications on the Nexus 10 also include a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.9-megapixel front camera, Bluetooth 3.0, and Wi-Fi only connectivity.
The device comes in two memory capacities including 16GB and 32GB versions.
Google will begin selling the Nexus 10 in the Google Play store starting at $399 for the 16GB model, and $499 for the 32GB version on Nov. 13 in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, and Canada.
