Nexus 8 Release Date, Specs and Rumours: Rumours Of The Nexus 10 2 Are Long Dead

News Paul Briden 10:49, 22 Apr 2014

It would appear the Nexus 10 2 is not happening. No matter, Google is apparently working on a new 8.9in slate – and it sounds awesome

Google's Nexus 10 2 is well on the way to becoming some kind of mythological beast, such is its continued elusiveness - like a Unicorn, or something. But perhaps another analogy could be Captain Ahab's White Whale, because for many that elusiveness has become teeth-gnashingly infuriating.

Google has said absolutely nothing about the Nexus 10 2, and the idea of a larger, more premium Nexus slate now seem to have fallen by the wayside. That’s the bad news. The good news, however, is that Google is apparently working on an 8.9in slate – dubbed the Nexus 8 – and word on the street suggests its an absolute monster. 

If the Nexus 8 is indeed real we could see the device launched at Google I/O 2014 in June. Google launched its first Nexus 7 slate back at I/O 2012, and with production of the slate said to kick off in earnest from July – an announcement in June does seem to make sense.

So what will this tablet be like? Read on to find out everything that’s currently been said about Google’s upcoming Nexus 8.

Nexus 8: Late-Q3, Early-Q4 Release On The Cards

Rhoda Alexander, director of tablet and monitor research at IHS Technology has added to the basket of rumours. She claims Google is all set to release a high-performance Nexus 8.9. She believes the pricing of the device to be at the “premium” end but has no details on the exact price.

What is new from Alexander’s information is she claims it will hit production during July or August 2014. That’s quite far away from now so we won’t be seeing the Nexus 8.9 until probably the end of Q3 2014 or even in Q4.

Some analysts have claimed the Nexus 8.9 will phase out the Nexus 7 but being an 8.9-inch tablet we think it’s more likely to phase out the Nexus 10, which didn’t sell particularly well in the first place. It makes sense for Google to downgrade the size of the screen on its Nexus 10 for the second edition so it can appeal to a broader audience and hopefully pick up a few more sales.

Nexus 8: Bigger, Better & More Expensive

IHS Technology, a technology consultancy firm, told CNET Google is planning to release a larger Nexus tablet later in the year with a “high performance” screen. The tablet is rumoured to be entering production in July this year but will be made in much smaller volumes than the Nexus 7. It’ll also cost a bit more due to higher specifications according to IHS Technology.

Rhoda Alexander from IHS Technology told CNET she “would not be surprised if it is higher than $299.” Would you spend that kind of money on a Nexus 8 tablet? The source also suggested Google would be producing a third-generation Nexus 7, too. Alexander said, “We still expect to see a 3rd generation of the Nexus 7 product at some point in 2014 but do not have any confirmation of actual contracts for such a product at present,” 

Some sites are reporting an 8.9-inch tablet could be called the Nexus 8, but when it sits so close to the 9-inch mark we believe it may be called the Nexus 9. DigiTimes is currently reporting that it expects Google to release two tablets in 2014. Given the pitch and assumed cost and spec of the Nexus 8 – or 9, as it may be called – one can assume (as we outline below) that the Nexus 10 2 is now definitely not happening. 

Google To Partner With HTC For Nexus 8?

Google’s rumoured partner list for the Nexus 8 is growing and now we can add HTC to it. According to a report from DigiTimes, Google will join forces with HTC to help produce the next Nexus tablet which will feature the 8-inch display.

The report comes from sources in the “the upstream supply chain.” Asus is currently the manufacturer of Google Nexus 7 slates and has developed two generations so far. Google has already tried to partner up with the Taiwanese manufacturer before to create the Nexus 7 slates but HTC declined.

Reasoning back then was to push forward the smartphone line. Camp Asus is currently focusing on creating and developing its own line of smartphones and tablets so it’d make sense if HTC steps in to replace the manufacturer.

The report from DigiTimes suggests the tablet will be announced at some point during Q3 this year. That means we could see details of it between July and September, many believe it’ll be announced at Google’s I/O conference but that’s too early taking place in June.

Neither company has been inclined to comment on the rumours, so far.

Nexus 10 2: Why It Didn't Happen

Sales

Google has recieved overwhelmingly positive feedback in terms of sales and reviews for many of its flagship Nexus devices, including the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones and both old and new iterations of the 7-inch Nexus 7.

The original Nexus 10 was fairly warmly recieved in the press, but in terms of sales, while it could hardly be considered a flop, it does appear to have been the weakest performer compared to its stable mates.

Google doesn't provide sales figures, so this is a tricky one to call, but industry analysts have revealed fairly believable estimates during 2013.

In April 2013, analyst Benedict Evans made predictions of Nexus 10 sales (bearing in mind the slate launched in November 2012) based on correlating active Android user data and details from Google's development information, specifically focusing on screen size and resolution of devices in use.

Evans believed there were around  6.8 million Nexus devices in use but only about 10 per cent, or 680,000, could be Nexus 10s.

Despite Android's gains in tablet market share, this clearly isn't happening off the back of the Nexus 10, as these figures, pinpoint accurate or not, pale in comparison to Apple's iPad sales.

While Google's Nexus 10 may have a hard core of extremely dedicated fans, from a business perspective this isn't enough of a reason for Google to invest in a follow-up device.

Cost

A related factor is the cost of the Nexus 10 and any potential follow-up device, both in terms of what it costs Google to make it and how that is carried to the consumer.

Google's big experiment with the Nexus smartphones and the Nexus 7 tablets was in offering premium-grade hardware at a distinctly non-premium price point and it's an experiment which I think we can all agree is a success.

The Nexus 10 isn't in the same sphere, however, with even higher-grade hardware but an expensive price tag to match (at the time of its launch anyway). Chief amongst the premium features is that massive 10.1-inch, 300 pixel-per-inch display, and display panels like that don't come cheap.

This may be one of the reasons it didn't sell so well, but due to the cost of making it being likely so much higher, Google is in a more difficult position when it comes to retailing it at a lower price point which might be more appealing to consumers.

The alternative, of course, is to drop the spec in order to drop the price, but for fans of the existing Nexus 10 this is unlikely to fly and it isn't offering the same "value" proposition to new buyers as other members of the Nexus family anyway. 

In short, Google is yet to figure out a way of offering a 10-inch device with a premium spec at the low cost which the majority of Nexus buyers require - that means reduced sales, which makes it a poor investment from the business perspective.

Specs

Google's rumoured Nexus 10 2, or Nexus 10 2013, appears to have recieved the same accidental official leak via Google Play that its phone counterpart, the Nexus 5, enjoyed ahead of launch. A picture and spec sheet allegedly appeared momentarily on Google's web store before being removed again.

Some anonymous tipsters claim to have caught some screens of the leak and sent them in to PhoneArena and it would seem the Nexus 5 also re-appeared alongside the Nexus 10 2 during the hiccup.

The included spec sheet revealed the same 10.1-inch display at 300 pixels-per-inch with a 2560x1600 pixel resolution as the earlier Nexus 10. The rest of the hardware had been boosted though as we now have an 8-megapixel primary camera and a 2.1-megapixel secondary, a 9,500mAh battery (an increase of 500mAh) and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip.

The leaked image looks more believable than the last one, which was clearly faked. This could conceivably also be a fake, but it is a bit more convincing on the face of things. That wallpaper though. Hideous.

The proportions of the device appear to have been refined with a narrower bezel all round. The specs say it is now 258.9mm wide by 172.6mm tall, it's also lighter and thinner at 584g and 7.9mm respectively.

But again, this could simply be an elaborate hoax, so do take it all with more than your healthy daily intake of salt.

"That" Leaked Image is Fake

A render has been doing the rounds on mobile tech sites which has been generating speculation that a Nexus 10 2 launch is imminent.

While it is perfectly possible that Google will launch a Nexus 10 successor, we think this particular picture isn’t proof in the slightest. We actually think it’s unlikely the Nexus 10 2 will emerge, primarily because of the nature of leaks and rumours in relation to forthcoming releases generally means that if it was coming, we would have seen much more about it by now, as we did with the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013. But, never say never.

Anyway, onto the reasons why the Nexus 10 2 leaked image, which emerged on imgur.com, is a hoax. Well, first of all let’s have a look at the Nexus 5.

This is precisely what the Nexus 5, and Android 4.4 KitKat, looked like when it launched, but we knew it would in advance. There was no question about this. The above image appeared on the Google Play store ahead of launch with the Nexus 5 product listing momentarily before Google recognised its blunder and pulled it down, but not before a few dozen tech sites took a screenshot.

We have previously observed the changes from the Android 4.3 interface and what’s new in Android 4.4 KitKat in a side-by-side comparison. If a Nexus 10 2 does emerge, at any point from now on, it will almost certainly be packing Android 4.4 KitKat as well, and although it will be tablet optimised it will certainly share many of these UI changes. There may be some subtle differences, but what it certainly won’t do is re-use elements from Android 4.3.

And that’s why the Nexus 10 2 leak is a fake, because there are plenty of UI elements which are clearly from Android 4.3 and not at all in keeping with the new, fresh-faced Android 4.4.

Take a look at our photoshopped image below – here we’ve used colour coded boxes to point out the areas of the UI which clearly contradict the Nexus 5’s leak of Android 4.4 KitKat, now the released KitKat, of course. We’d encourage you to look at the areas we’ve highlighted on the un-edited image that we've re-posted alongside it to get a clearer view, and compare them to the image of the Nexus 5 (which we'll also re-post again below for convenience) to see how they’re different from what we know about the Android 4.4 KitKat UI.

Look at the area at the top highlighted by the white box. This is the notification bar, which in Android 4.4 KitKat will be transparent with bright white notification icons, as we can see on the Nexus 5 image. Here, it is the old style black bar with bright blue icons, which we’ve seen on multiple iterations of Android prior to KitKat. If you look closely you can also see there’s a band below this which is slightly more faded than the rest of the background which looks suspiciously like it’s come across from a copy-and-paste job of the background on the Nexus 5 image – there’s really no reason for it to be there.

Now look at the area at the bottom highlighted in red. Again, the last few Android versions have featured this white dividing bar between the homescreen page and the app tray, but on the Nexus 5 running Android 4.4 this has been replaced with a dotted page indicator and nothing more.

Look at the two icons highlighted by blue boxes. The middle one is the app drawer icon while the one on the right is the camera shortcut. Both of these appear the same as in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. However, as the Nexus 5 leak shows, Android 4.4 KitKat will feature new icons for each. The app drawer icon no longer has an outer ring and is now a solid, translucent circle with a shadow behind it, while the six dots appear more circular. Meanwhile the camera icon is now lighter in colour, more stylised and appears to be pointing straight at the user rather than being angled slightly downwards.

Lastly, look at the yellow box at the bottom. This is the navigation bar featuring Android’s on-screen touch controls. As with the notifications bar, in Android 4.4 KitKat this bar is now transparent rather than black as it used to be and as it’s presented on the Nexus 10 leak. The icons are also now bright white rather than a darker grey.

Fake. No-one has actually seen this on the play store. Just another edited pic

I'm inclined to agree with you. Still, I think it's good to keep track of such things as they occur ahead of a launch, if only for posterity's sake

it could have been a glitch as it also shows the nexus 5. The nexus 5 cant be fake as it is on the site and does look real to me. Im 50/50 on this one but if the leaks at true, google you can take my money now!

I'm also on the fence.

But I'm thinking if it is indeed a hoax, the hoaxers will have fabricated the whole thing from top-to-bottom, including website URLs, pictures, specs, all of which could be done in Photoshop. It's possible but we have nothing to go on one way or the other. There are only two things which jump out at me as strange.

One is the processor being vastly more powerful than any other Nexus device and potentially unbalancing the price from a traditionally 'lower cost' brand. Edit: On second thought, the Nexus 5 is reported to have a Qualcomm 800 and it's thought the Nexus 4 will continue as the cheaper option, so it does make sense to do this with the 10-inch tablet too.

Two, is the fact that we simply haven't had anything like the rumour and leak landslide we've seen with the Nexus 5. Why would only the smartphone leaks in this way? It doesn't make sense.

Edit: Actually, there's a third.

I can understand the Nexus 5 leaking officially on Google Play as it did, an error in uploading content to the website.

Either someone got burned for that or it was, as these things often are, deliberate for publicity and generating hype.

If it's the former, for it to happen again with the Nexus 10 2 seems odd, as you'd expect Google to be extra careful. For it to happen again with the Nexus 10 2 accompanied again by the Nexus 5, seems even weirder as it's a double-whammy of a mistake.

If it's the latter, however, and it's all deliberate, it makes perfect sense in the case of both devices.

Nexus devices are worst kept secrets ever. The Nexus 5 even went on sale in Netherlands before it was announced!

Sorry, but you have but you seem to have bad instincts on this. The Nexus 10 isn't a budget device like the Nexus 7. It debuted with the first Cortex A15 processor on the market, incredibly high-end at the time. T he Snapdragon 800 is not a surprise. I really doubt that these particular leaks are fake. And I'd be surprised if they didn't launch the first two Android 4.4 devices together.

Yeah, I did correct myself in a subsequent comment below. I still maintain the first leak was a fake though. This second one might be legit, but I'm not 100% about it regardless of whether a Nexus 10 2 is actually coming or not.

Google lost this round. It doesn't matter when the Nexus 10v2 is released now because the majority of consumers will still purchase based upon reviews. Google has allowed zero time for constructive reviews. Party over...

I'm actually tempted to just buy an iPad or the last gen Nexus 10. Tired of this waiting game and tired of Google being so dang hush-hush about everything.

Unless, like the N5, the press is under embargo.

If this doesnt come out soon I'll be forced to buy a different tablet.
I would get one for my sister for christmas, but I need to allow the lead time for delivery etc before christmas. If it's not out on cyber monday I'm going to have to sadly grab something else.

Fake. Nexus 5 is an attempt at credibility. A Nexus 10 without WiFi ac or Wireless Qi charging, when the Nexus 5 just came with both. Fake, Fake, Fake....

I like many others have been waiting confirmation from Google. I thought their whole philosophy was to provide affordable tablets for their customers but they obviously don't know how to treat their customers. They treat us all like mushrooms - kept in the dark and fed on sh!t. If nothing happens by Monday I'm shopping elsewhere for a tablet this year!

I'm sick of waiting I got the ipad air

That image is a terrible fake ... That background is a giant '5' picture from the nexus 5 ... I can't believe you even justified it with a rebuttal

Photo is fake, just like your release dates. Are you going to keep pushing the release date back a week at a time, until one day you get out right?

Have been witing for months for the launch. If no release by Monday unfortunately another tablet sale will be lost......

We justified it with a rebuttal because some people went absolutely nuts when new tablets such as the iPad Air came out and we started writing comparisons comparing the existing Nexus 10 to the new Apple models. In all cases these people got very annoyed purely on the grounds that they believed a Nexus 10 2 launch was imminent - we wanted to prove that this leak in particular, which was cited as evidence, was no proof whatsoever.

Fake. Nexus 5 and 7 are horizontal, Nexus 10 is slanted.

totally agree. looking at getting a Galaxy tab 10.1 2014

I"m totally over it, I would buy a ipad just to stick it to Google with how fricken badly they are handling this but I hate apple like one hates the clap! so this morning I'm buying a samsung 10.1 2014.. I loved my first gen nexus 7 until I broke it so thought I'd upscale... Alas its not to be..

Embargo? The N5 was the most leaked device this year. There were no surprises when it released.

Agree, in fact I already bought another one. I waited for Googles 10 incher for a while. If Google had at least come out with some kind of official statement as to what the deal was, I might have waited, if there was some hope. But amid all these rumors, nothing official from Google. Well, they lost a customer here.

A friend of mine went with that one after getting tired of waiting for the next Nexus 10. It's a great tablet.

What are they handling badly?

Your first mistake was listening to anything IBT had to say.

I gave up waiting for the nexus 10 2 and got the Samsung note 10.1 2014 edition and it's excellent ...In my mind the very best tablet on the market for 10 inch

I was really hoping the Nexus 10 2 would come out before Christmas and today was the last day I was going to wait. No dice so I decided to go with the Samsung Galaxy Tab instead.

black friday came and went and so did cyber monday I'm sick and tired of the rumours and sick and tired of waiting..obviously google don't want my money! I'm off to buy an i pad air

lol. Google will release Nexus 11.5 in coming days just in time for Xmas shopping season. CPU is Snap dragon's 2.5 GHz and 3 gig RAM with kit kat 4.4.1 Android. Thickness only 7.2 mm, weight 397 g. Cheer.

Thinking of doing the same, I was surprised to see the ipad air 16gb wifi model is actually at an affordable price

Something official would be nice. Customers expected something by now so either confirm it or confirm it's not coming. Either way.

Wow such facts, thank you stranger

I refuse. Just for selling the ipad 2...$400 and three year old specs?

Amazon Kindle HDX 8.9 seems to be a nice option too.
Asus Memo Pad FHD 10 (Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor, PowerVR SGX 544, Micro SDHC Card Reader, 580g) is a decent and cheaper device.

Sadly I think Google are losing the plot a bit. As a long standing customer a disliker of Apple I have spent the last 6 weeks waiting forthe Nexus 10 (new) sadly I have read every article and every rumor. All Google had to do was to provide a clear statement on their road map of the N10 (new) I would have accepted it either way. But to say nothing and remain quiet has really got me upset. So sadly I have admitted defeat and now feel Google does not care about me. :-(. Been out today and spent my money on the iPad mini retina instead.

another lost sale here. If only some hint of a release of 8/9/10 inch.

A new leak!!!! lol

How is Google doing ANYTHING different to Apple? They don't announce that they will be making an announcement. I can't believe how many people are complaining about Google when the only people generating froth about potential new products is the only media sites, who clearly are making something from absolutely nothing.

So how is Google treating their customers badly exactly?

If you want one of their existing products, buy it. If not, then don't. Whichever, quit whining.

And exactly how many times have you heard a company announce "it's not coming"???

The amount of chaff spouted by this and other sites, it'd be a full time job for several people...

I'm not waiting any longer. I don't think the New Nexus 10 will come any time soon. I'll probably go for the Samsung Note 10.1 2014 edition. iPad Air would be a nice alternative, but I don't want to go into the closed Apple architecture which I got out of a couple of months ago.

I got tired of waiting and got the ipad air. Might get another one.

I own a nexus 10 and I have been very happy with it , but one big mistake from google was to not offer the 16gb nexus 10 in the stores but only online and charging shipping for it
At 499.00 the 32gb wan't the best option for people when they visited the stores

One more time...

Again, I've said this before but I'll add my two cents here. I have a couple of theories about the release of the Nexus 10 2013. Each of these are ideas as to what Google is doing as well as why they are remaining mum on the subject. NOT BASED ON ANYTHING I HAVE HEARD!

1) If it is actually being released by Samsung as Sundar Pichai alluded to earlier in the year (because I don't believe the "rumors" of it being produced by other manufacturers), Samsung and Google came to an agreement that Google would wait to release it so as to not cannibalize the Galaxy Note 10.1 during the peak shopping season. This could be the case as Google doesn't really produce the Nexus line to be a huge revenue stream. It is more of a vehicle to showcase their untainted OS. Google can't say anything because if people (like those following this story) found out why Google is waiting, they wouldn't rush out and buy a Samsung tablet which is what Samsung doesn't want and Google doesn't care. Android is on both devices so it is a win-win for Google.

2) Google is waiting until the kinks with Android 4.4 are worked out and a stable and workable version of KitKat can be put on the Nexus 10. Why release the new hardware if there are known issues with KitKat and the current Nexus 10? Google can't say anything because what company wants to divulge the negative reasons for not doing something?

3) Google pulled back after Sundar Pichai's statement realizing that they didn't have a real advantage with the Nexus 10 line when compared to tablets by Samsung and Apple other than the pure Android OS experience (which is always going to be a limited market). They may have made a late game decision to finally take the plunge of melding the ChromeOS environment (which is showing growth) with Android into a single device. This is going to take some time which means we would see the Nexus 10 update closer to the next major update to KitKat.

Again...just some theories.

Getting around...

Dito! I bought one and also a new iPad Air for comparison because I didn't know which one I would prefer. I'm an Mac guy. Always have been since my 1st computer but when it comes to 'Tablets" ...the iPad is living off the laurels of their legendary reputation! I was shocked to discover that the Galaxy Android OS is far more navigation friendly ...not to mention all the extra benefits you get with the Galaxy. Has a Micro SD card capability to boost the memory, just being one of many extra benefits. Played a Netflix movie on the two tabs side-by-side and the Galaxy had better picture quality. That coming from a professional photographer. The Air will be returned! The one drawback I had with the Galaxy was I couldn't find a really decent Keyboard/Case combo for the New 2014 edition Galaxy Note but that problem was easily resolved for me when I decided to see if it would fit in the Belkin Slim Style Keyboard case I had purchased for the iPad Air. IT was a virtually perfect fit with the exception that the camera 'hole' wasn't correct on the back & the speakers were partially 'covered' by the leatherette sides. Neither are an issue for me since I didn't intend on using the tablet for photography (I have far better cameras for that purpose) & the "covered" speakers don't seem to muffle the volume in any discernible way to my ears.

IB Times releases a new article every day except they change the dates...

Danny Gleeson - Same here... been looking to buy my first tablet, decided for what I need I'll get a 10"... but reading months worth of articles talking about delays in the new Nexus 10 is making me think that waiting is a waste of time. Their marketing stunt is making me lose interest and likely will buy something else.

Just get a Toshiba Excite Pro instead. Same screen resolution as the nexus 10 but much faster. When the nexus 10 version 2 eventually appears it will be more expensive and there will probably not be much difference in speed. In the UK the excite pro is sometimes available for less than £200. I have it and it's blazingly fast. Very impressive tablet.

Frustrated with waiting, I caved in an bought an iPad Air, and to be honest, I'm glad I did.

I forgot how good Apple tablets are and how good the tablet experience is on an Apple device. Makes the Nexus 7 just feel like a large phone with phone apps. I've already put the N7 on ebay. It doesn't even get a decent return when selling 2nd hand.

Shame the Nexus 10-2 didn't come out. But I think it was a blessing in disguise.

Calm down there skippy, no need to get your panties in a bunch... Google doesn't owe you anything, they'll bloody well announce it when they're damn well ready, no amount of pissing and moaning is going to change that... Have you read your own comments to see just how ridiculous they sound? You all sound like a bunch of spoiled, entitled 7 year old brats throwing a hissy fit because mommy told you that you couldn't have that new toy... Grow up.

Why does an article with two month old comments have a date of 13:43, 17 Jan 2014?

Google store has now completely removed the Nexis10 from their site. A couple days ago it was there, but said out of stock, to check back soon for availability.
Hopefully soon.

As stated, the Nexus 10 is out of inventory.
Will there be a restocking of it or a new one?
Considering a few things, it would seem it will be restocked or replaced.
Why do I say this?
If they are not restocking or replacing why even have it on the play store at all, and why does it say after out of inventory, "check back soon."
Let's hope we know soon.

I can't see how you think that is a nexus 5. It is not. That photo has speakers on the front sides where they are now. And I have not seen any other tablets with speakers there.

He wasn't talking about the tablet, he was talking about the UI wallpaper. It is a zoomed & cropped Nexus 5 wallpaper, the line & curve are part of a number "5", just like the Nexus 7 2013 wallpaper has a wallpaper that looks like it is a play on the digit "7".

Why would the new nexus 10 have a lower res screen than the old one? Full Hd would be a downgrade!

just fuck you nothing more

I'm cheering for HTC. They won MWC's best phone of 2013, it would be stupid of Google not to ride along with this kind of press. Once people start buying HTC One, HTC M8, they'll pick up a HTC Babel(Tablet- rumored to be Nexus 10 v2) as well.

I think you are wrong. Use some logic.

If Nexus 10 isn't happening then there would be no Nexus 10 device listed at all in the play store. And it definitely would not say check back soon if something wasn't happening with it. And the fact that the old one has been out of inventory so long indicates a new Nexus 10 2. And there may be an 8 coming but at this point it is all just made up speculation.

(Just to be a smart as) HTC did the Nexus One so it is not the first time.
