After the Nexus 7's rousing success as one of the best-performing tablets in the market today, Google is set to release its follow-up, the Nexus 8. Previous Nexus 7 models were launched in July 2012 and 2013; but with no final announcements released yet, speculations abound that it will be in the market by late summer or early fall this year.
Reports state that Nexus 8's specs and price points will challenge big players in the tablet market such as the iPad mini, LG G Pad 8.3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
While Asus and LG were also in the shortlist, the powerful search engine has reportedly chosen electronics company HTC to produce the tablet.
Nexus 8 will be housed in a sleek aluminum frame and will be packed with a 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, internal storage options of 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64GB, a rear-facing camera rated at 5MP or 8MP, and 5GB of RAM.
Watch movies and other media from an 8.9-inch display complemented by an impressive 2,560x1,600 pixel resolution. It will also have the new Android OS, allegedly called Android Lollipop.
