Concepts of the Nexus 5, Nexus 8 and Nexus 11 running Android 4.3 have appeared online ahead of Google I/O this week

Concept shots of the Nexus 5, Nexus 8 and Nexus 11 have been released online, showcasing Android 4.3.

All three devices have been rumoured to launch at Google I/O that starts tomorrow (Wednesday).

The concepts are pretty bare - just three different sized devices - one a smartphone, one a small tablet and the third a larger tablet.

Designed by Rob Freking, the devices were also released with a set of tech specs.

Nexus 5 built by LG

The Nexus 5 will reportedly be produced by LG and will feature a 5-inch 1080x1920 pixel, True IPS display, running on a 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU with Adreno 330 GPU. It will feature a 2-megpixel front-facing camera and 13-megapixel rear camera with flash. Freking estimates it will cost $299 (£190) for the 16GB version.

Nexus 8 built by Asus

Next up, an 8-inch tablet that builds upon the success of the Nexus 7. Freking thinks this tablet will feature an 8-inch, 1200x1920 pixel IPS LCD display, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU with Adreno 320 GPU, 2-megapixel front camera, 3-megpaixel rear camera and will cost around £130 for the 8GB version.

Nexus 11 built by Samsung

The Nexus 11 would be the biggest device in the Nexus family. With an 11-inch 1600x2560 pixel, Super PLS display, it would be among the best tablet out there. Running on a 1.8GHz quad-core Tegra 4 CPU with 72-core Nvidia GeForce GPU, it would certain pack a punch for gaming. On the front, Freking thinks there will be a 2-megapixel camera, while the back will boast a 5-megapixel snapper. The Nexus 11 would also be reasonably priced for a tablet - coming in at around £260 for the 16GB version.

Google I/O takes place from Wednesday-Friday this week, and we already have our not-so-exciting suspicions about the event, predicting that Google will actually launch an updated 4G Nexus 4 and refreshed Nexus 7.
