There have been many rumours surrounding the release of two new Nexus smartphones from Google this year – the LG Nexus 5 and Huawei Nexus 6 – but some new leaked photos of a tablet device suggests that there could also be a Nexus 8 tablet sitting somewhere in the wings. This is probably one of the first times that we’ve heard this year that a Nexus 8 is being prepared, so we should definitely take this news with a grain of salt – having said that, if it is a low cost device, it would make a lot of sense considering that the Nexus 9 significantly upped its pricing compared to the older Nexus 7 and it could be pitched as the new Nexus 7. Check out the two leaked images below:
One thing to note about the device in the photos is that the tablet features an all-metal body and it doesn’tÂ show any noteworthy features that can be attributed to any one manufacturer. While the device in the photos is only a dummy, the design appears to be in an advanced state, though if it were an actual Nexus 8, we’d be interested to know if it would be announced alongside the new Nexus smartphones, or on its own later in the year.
