Washington: After the success of Google Nexus 5, now company is gearing up to launch its new flagship tablet Google Nexus 8.
The new leaked images of Google Nexus 8 showing the 8 inch tablet. The photo is published on Google’s Android promotional website, that indicate that Google will be launching a mini tablet to go against recently launch Apple iPad Mini with Retina display.
On the Apps and Entertainment section of the Android.com site, a woman is shown enjoying a tablet that appears to be larger than the existing Nexus 7.
The mystery device is running Android 4.4 KitKat, has very slim bezels and slows on-screen navigational buttons.
As Ars Technica points out, Google never uses fake devices for its promotional materials, so appears that Google may have leaked its next big hardware move.
An 8-inch Nexus tablet would give Google the opportunity to battle the new iPad mini 2 with Retina Display and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablets.
This is the first mention of a potential Nexus 8 tablet. Until today, all speculation has focussed on a Nexus 10 refresh, which is yet to materialise.
Might a Nexus 8 replace the Nexus 10 or will we see Google take a three-way approach to dominating the tablet world?
