White V510 tablet pictures appear, claimed Nexus 8 candidate still only carries LG branding

The perennial rumor mongers from @evleaks hinted yesterday that the LG V510 tablet is actually the speculated 8-incher that is to fill a missing spot in Google's Nexus line. The LG G Pad 8.3 is codenamed V500, and we thought that V510 is another version with LTE connectivity, or something along that line, before @evleaks came out with the bombshell claim.

Now a picture of the LG V510 has appeared, and its specs indicate that it is still a Wi-Fi-only version, but with a different internal coding. On the other hand, there is no Nexus branding anywhere to be seen, the English on the manual is not perfect, plus the tablet looks like the G Pad 8.3 in its turn, pouring a whole lot of confusion in that particular rumor mill once again.

Still, a tablet situated between the new Nexus 7, and the aging Nexus 10, would make sense for Google's line of mobile devices, and let's not forget that LG built the Nexus 5 handset, too, so anything is possible still, from the collaboration between Google and LG. If the Nexus 8 is indeed based on the G Pad 8.3, all the better, since this one sports a 1920x1200 pixels display, quad-core Snapdragon, and 5 MP camera on the back, with some premium metallic design to boot.

this does not look like a nexus 8 at all... plus i don't get why a 8in tablet would make sense... one tablet every inch ? then lets wait for the 6in too, so we'll have n5, n7, n8 ...

I'd be tempted by an N2 smartwatch, if it were possible for me to be tempted by a smartwatch at all.
