Google Nexus 8, the long delayed tablet, has been subject to many rumors lately, with previous reports also suggesting that Google might announce the upcoming 8-inch tablet something in the second half of 2014.
While there is no confirmation yet, the tech world is abuzz with plenty of rumors surrounding the new Google Nexus. Google's long-rumored tablet has been leaked in a set of new images, according to a report published by MyDrivers on Thursday.
The pictures sent to My Drivers.com show the device in a protective case. That simply means that it is impossible to get a clear picture of the tablet. In fact, it is hard to judge whether these leaked pictures are authentic or not.
Moreover, the report further claims the tablet to feature a 64-bit Qualcomm processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM, and will run on Android 4.5.
We've had heard rumors that Google's upcoming tablet might be powered by a 64-bit processor. Interestingly, Qualcomm has already said that they won't be able to ready the Snapdragon 808 or the Snapdragon 810 CPU until 2015. So most likely the Nexus 8 will use another chipset altogether.
If media reports are to be believed, Taiwan's HTC has been given a contract to produce the Nexus 8, which may come out sometime between July and September.
Consequently, sources close to AndroidPit revealed that the upcoming Nexus 8 tablet will be powered by Intel based chipset, instead of regular Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
The supposed device is said to arrive with Intel's latest generation 64-bit "Moorefield" processor based on 22nm 3D transistor that might be clocked at 2.3GHz for all cores (quad-core). The chipset supports LTE connectivity, which allows device makers to launch tablets/smartphones with LTE-A.
