Google Nexus 8 To Enter Production in July-August, Release Date Delayed ?

Google Nexus 8

We kept telling you the latest rumors about the Google Nexus 8 and, as you probably know, we thought its release date will be in July. But now CNET has just reported that it might enter production in July or August, which means the release date might be delayed to September or October if this turns out to be true.

According to the rumor, it seems like the Nexus 8 will actually have an 8.9-inch display, which means we probably right to say that Google is going to ditch the Nexus 10.

It seems like the Nexus 8 will come with a quad-core processor, which we think will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 or 805, 2GB of RAM, and a Full HD display. It would be a shame if it didn’t come with a 1440×2560 QHD one, but we hope the report is wrong on this one.

Previously it was thought that Asus or LG is going to make the Nexus 8, but CNET now claims that it’s going to be built by HTC. This comes as a surprise, considering that HTC doesn’t even have a tablet on the market right now and we were expecting Google to pick someone who already has a similar tablet, like the LG G Pad 8.3.

The report also says that Google is working on a 2014 Nexus 7, but there aren’t any information about it for the moment. And if this turns out to be true, it means we were right once again, because we said that Google will stick only the Nexus 7 and Nexus 8.

As you can see, there are some common things that all rumors talk about, like the display size, while there are different reports about the manufacturer and release date. We still believe that Google will release the Nexus 8 in July, while the 2014 Nexus 7 might be released in September or October.

    I think they should stop with the Nexus 7 and work on a Nexus 8. The bigger screen would be great and hopefully they could keep it the same size as the Nexus 7 (well roughly the same)
