Google Nexus 8 Release Date 2014, Price, Specs & News Update
Google's Nexus 8 was expected by many to be unveiled/released at the 2014 Google I/O but it didn't happen. So rumors keep circulating about what the new Nexus 8 will be like and when it will release in 2014.
Nexus 8 could be Google's last piece of Nexus hardware as the company transitions to a new program called Android Silver. The new program will have multiple manufacturers, Nexus-like features, and a marketing campaign. Google hopes this new program will rival the iPhone.
Nexus 8 rumors that hint at a Fall 2014 release alongside a new Android update. Motorola Germany claims that "Android 5.0″ will be out this fall and new Android software has always accompanied by new Nexus hardware.
Nexus 8 rumors point to a high-end device with a zero-gap aluminum unibody design similar to the HTC One, 8.9-inch 2048 x 1440 full HD display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, 4G LTE, 64-bit NVIDIA Logan 64-bit processor (Tegra K1), 8MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a feature found on the Nexus 5, and a 3MP front-facing camera for video chatting.
Google has hinted at different prices of $399 for the 16GB version and $499 for the 32GB version of the Nexus 8. This is much higher price range than the previous two Nexus tablets and it shows us where Google might be pricing the new Android Silver devices.
PocketNow shows a Google image that very clearly isn't the Nexus 7 or the Nexus 10. The front-facing speaker and camera placement do not resemble features found on Google's current Nexus 7. So could this be the new Nexus 8 they are showing?
Sometimes Google announcements sneak up on people, as last year they announced the Nexus 7 and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update at a low key breakfast meeting in San Francisco.
Dave Burke, the head the Nexus program at Google and of Android engineering, tells ReadWrite that despite the arrival of Android Silver, the Nexus program isn't dead. Burke shares that the company is "still invested in Nexus" and that the "prospect of Silver doesn't mean that Nexus is going away."
