It has long been rumored that Google is working on a new 8 inch tablet called the Nexus 8. And today we might have uncovered the first glimpse of this tablet from the official Android page. This device was spotted on the apps and entertainments section of the webpage and looks pretty similar to other 8 inch tablets, particularly the LG G Pad 8.3. But since there’s no confirmation coming through at this point, we can’t really make sure yet. However, rumors in the past have suggested that Google has been working on an 8 inch tablet of its own, so we remain hopeful.
Considering that Google only recently launched the 2013 Nexus 7, it seems a little strange that they would launch an 8 inch variant this soon. So take this rumor with a pinch of salt for the time being. But it’s almost certain that what’s being used here is a new device as we don’t see any manufacturer logos on the front, thus indicating that this is indeed a Nexus device.
