The Samsung Roma tablet is expected to be a variant of the Nexus 10 running Samsung's TouchWIZ user interface on top of the standard Android platform.

The Nexus 10 is manufactured by Samsung but runs stock Jelly Bean 4.2 software.

It's also distributed through Google's online store rather than traditional bricks and mortar retailers.

The Samsung Roma tablet is expected to include a microSD card slot for memory expansion along with 4G connectivity, neither of which are available on the Nexus 10.

Other listed features of the as yet unannounced tablet include a 10.1in touchscreen with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels (299ppi), a 1.7 GHz dual-core Exynos 5 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

The Samsung Roma is also expected to include a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera, and will be powered by a 9000mAh battery.
