Nexus 8 specs revealed


Rumors of an HTC-made Nexus 8 have been circulating for a while now, but we have some juicy details for you. If these leaked specs are true, this will be the tablet of the year.

The Nexus 8 is codenamed T1, and it’s expected to sport an 8.9-inch (2560 x 1600) display, a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra chip, 4 GB of RAM, 8 MP rear camera, 1.6 MP front-facing camera, and optional LTE. How is that for some serious power?

The only question is when will this bad boy get released? Word is that it will sport Android L out of the box, which means we probably won’t see it until October. Traditionally, Google releases new versions of Android with their Nexus devices in the October / November timeframe. There is no reason to believe this will happen earlier this year.

The good news is that things continue to move forward as it appears to have been certified in South Korea under the code of “0P8210000″, which was revealed about a month ago under the codename “Flounder.”

So what do you guys think? Will the Nexus 8 be your next tablet?

    Not for me. The Nexus 7 7″ screen was too small; the Nexus 8 8.9″ screen is too big. An 8″ screen, just right.

    I’ll get it just to start coding on a 64-bit ARM chip. If the Surface RT 3 also uses the 64-bit ARM, then I’ll pick the cheaper one (probably the Nexus).

    Count me in! The Nexus 7 is a tad too small for me. And with my HP TouchPad (running Android) just taking its last breath, a 8.9-inch display will be welcomed easily!

    The price will be the deciding factor for me. I’m using a 2012 Nexus 7. Not bad, but not good. I’d consider an upgrade if priced just right.
