Is this the long awaited Nexus 8, pictured at last?

Is this the long awaited Nexus 8, pictured at last?
Recent posts on MYCE that referenced a device called "flounder," are among the most recent indications that the mythical Nexus 8 tablet is indeed real. Google is known to use fish as code names for its Nexus devices. The MYCE posts also refer to a 64-bit Tegra processor that would be powering the slate. On Thursday, a leak out of Asia came with a couple of leaked pictures allegedly showing the Nexus 8 tablet, and some new specs. And while the latest rumor does mention a 64-bit chip, the Tegra name is not on it.

The new rumor has the Nexus 8 powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm processor. The only Qualcomm silicon that could fit the bill, with 64-bit technology fit for a flagship, would be the Snapdragon 808 or the Snapdragon 810. But the pair won't be ready until 2015, which means that either the timing of this rumor is off, or more likely, the slate will use another chip altogether. There is a third possibility, which is that the pictures and specs are a fake. More on that later.

The Nexus 8 is  tipped to include 3GB of RAM and will include Android 4.5 pre-installed. The next big Android update is believed to be optimized for 64-bit silicon.

Now comes the part of the story where we tell you to take this with a grain of salt. After all, that Exclusive Leaked stamp makes the pictures below look questionable immediately. The previous rumor had the slate getting unveiled during Google I/O which runs for two days starting on June 25th. Considering that the number of leaks about the Nexus 8 have picked up recently, it could be a sign that the long waited tablet will  finally be unveiled next month at Google's developer conference.


Thanks for the tip!

After all the Awful experience on nexus 7, I'll try my best to stay away android tablet, people try to make tablets a computing experience, if tablets apps taste like smartphones, what's the point of getting it when I already had a smartphones? All fandroid claim variety of customization on android tab is full of Bulls**t , lack of cases, lack of keyboard experience, lacks of bagages to choose, even lack of business integration apps. even my little sister bored of this toy.

ahh ... "customization" definition from an iFan, - "cases, keyboards etc". I think you're confused it with term "accessories". Anyway, keep using Apple. Android might be too complex for you. In short Tic Tac Toe is for you, but not Sudoku.

Now I'm not going to swear at you because judging by your avatar, you're a misguided child. Question for your statement. So what do you plan to do with your next tablet?

Rather a m$ tablet than android by any means :)

If you wanted an m$ tablet over the nexus 7 it's your choice and actually I like m$ but all the talk about customization really got to go android has the biggest ability to customise far bigger than wp and even the new ios 8 this coming from a wp fan

25. FingerMyApple unregistered

Any customization to benefit my career ?

Can't really tell you recommend you since you have the n7 wich is easy to customise but I can recommend you that if you wanted switch to wp get the 2050 if you wanted rt but if you wanted a full pc experience there is so much to choose from

Fake. I don't believe that Google will release an 8'' tablet with such big bezels.

I think it's a fake But whatever I prefer ipads over android if I look for a tablet and the choice for many reasons to me But in case of mobile go for android for sure

If this is real, then Google must've gone nuts to approve that design

Hmm... If Htc is making it, then its not fake. Don't forget that Htc loves thick bezels!

If htc ditch their logo and don't use the front facing speaker then the bezel will be slimmer
