That dream seemed to be quashed earlier this month by the leak of a purported LG Service Manual for the LG-V510. The manual allegedly revealed that the device was an 8.3 inch tablet with resolution of 1200 x 1920 with 2GB of RAM. The back and front cameras weighed in at 5MP and 1.3MP with a 4600mAh battery inside. With the 8.3 inch screen and no mention of the Nexus brand anywhere, this was all shaping up to be another variant of the LG G Pad 8.3, perhaps an LTE enabled model.
Now that the usually reliable evleaks has received a tip that the LG-V510 is a Nexus model, we are right back to square one which means it could be the Nexus 8. Considering that such a slate would naturally be a rival to the 7.9 inch Apple iPad with Retina display, if this really is the Nexus 8, we'd expect to see some quick action on Google's part with only two weeks left to shop for Christmas.
