Is Google hinting at a Nexus 8? If so, they aren’t very shy about it


Google may be hinting at the release of a brand new device. Found by a member of The Verge Forums, it seems that Google could be launching a new tablet with an 8-inch screen. We know Google has a very interesting way of leading up to an announcement, just look at KitKat. In the image above (with the full size after the break), you can see that this tablet is not the usual Nexus 7. This has smaller bezels on the top and bottom with wider sides. Also, it is running KitKat. Could this launch alongside the new Nexus 10? That seems to be how this will play out if the Nexus 8 is indeed real. Google could be launching both this new device with the Nexus 10 to give consumers a wide variety of choice this holiday season.

    Yikes…i can see there will be many pissed of Nexus 7 (2013) users thinking that their tablet is not “the best” anymore. :S

      it was NEVER the best.
      nexus 7 2013 isn’t very high end.

    I was going to purchase the Nexus 7 LTE table November 29th but now this stops me dead in my tracks. I always believe in having the best so this means I will be waiting until further information or an exact release of this product if it is actually true.

      Same here. No reason to get the Nexus 7 until you see this thing.

      Personally, I’m a big believer of the second best. The best is over-rated.

      Woooo…. 1 inch larger and what will more than likely be only marginally better specs. Want a bigger screen? Get the Nexus 10. Want something more powerful? Get a laptop.
      What an idiot.

      from what i can see of the pics and a few rumors it will have a snapdragon 600 or 800 in it and 8 inches. i will get this if this is the case. i was about to get the nexus 7 2nd gen but hold the phone.
