HTC-Made Google Nexus 8 Tablet Tipped to Feature 4GB of RAM, Android L
Google still hasn't revealed plans for launching a new Nexus tablet; though we have confirmation the Nexus 5's successor, as per Sundar Pichai, would arrive sometime in the second half of 2014. However, this doesn't stop leaks regarding the next-generation Nexus tablet from coming.

New details about the alleged HTC-made Nexus 8 tablet, previously referred to as 'volantis/ flounder', have surfaced online. A Twitter user named UpLeaks has claimed that the alleged Nexus 8 has been codenamed T1, and will come with Android L out-of-the-box.

The tipster has also listed some of the purported specifications of the alleged Nexus 8 tablet, which seem to be quite high-end. The list includes a 64-bit Tegra processor; a MDM9x25 modem (3G model); 4GB of RAM; an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash; a 1.6-megapixel front camera, as well as GPS and NFC connectivity. An earlier report had suggested that the alleged Nexus 8 tablet would run the 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 chipset, along with an incredible 5GB of RAM.

Another report by Gforgames, citing South Korean certification agency RRA (Radio Research Agency), suggests that the unannounced HTC-made Nexus 8 has just been certified. The rumoured HTC device with code number '0P82100' has been spotted at the RRA site.

The alleged Nexus 8 tablet has been long-rumoured to be built by HTC, the Taiwanese giant, and hit store shelves by Q3. The anticipated HTC-made Google Nexus 8 tablet is also said to feature a 'high performance' 8.9-inch display, in an attempt to compete with Amazon's Kindle range and Apple's iPad mini. Prior to this, two alleged Nexus models (Nexus 6 and Nexus 8) were spotted in the Chromium codes.

In June, Google's Dave Burke confirmed that the Nexus program would continue unaffected by the Android Silver program and a new Nexus flagship running Android L can be expected to launch later this year.
