Rumors of Google developing an 8 inch Nexus tablet variant is gaining strength with each passing day. Adding fuel to the rumor fire is none other than @evleaks whose tweets have by now gained reputation for being extremely accurate in their predictions about a device before they actually come out officially. And @evleaks have mentioned about LG being the maker of a new tablet for Google carrying the codenamed V510.
Weibo, a Chinese blog site has also posted some leaked pictures of the service manual of the V510 tablet. The information that is derived from this leaked photo is that the device would be 8.3 inch by display size and have a TFT screen. The resolution would be 1920 x 1020p. Over all dimension of the device would be 8.3 mm by thickness and 349.38 by weight. The battery pack would be of 4,600 mAh rating. So far as conne3ctivity functions go, the V510 would have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ability to connect via other cellular service provider’s network. It would have micro USB too for connecting other external devices. The tablet would sport two camera, one at the back of 5 MP and the front facing one 1.3 MP. RAM of 1 GB and storage space of 16 GB sums up the hardware specification of the tablet.
LG also offers the G Pad which comes with a 8.3 inch display besides manufacturing the Nexus 5 smartphone for Google. This 8 inch tablet appears to be launched for giving competition to the iPad mini from Apple which is also an 8 inch device.
A leaked image of this tablet being discussed had been accidently placed by LG on their website but has been removed immediately thereafter. It had then been noticed that the device was smaller than the Nexus 10 and had bezel that was different from the Nexus 7, which had given rise to the talk about the 8 inch tablet speculation.
