Specs for the tablet have cropped up online in a series of tweets by @upleaks, and if true, spec-fiends will have plenty to be excited about come launch day.
Android L is of course on the cards, and it should run smoother than a greased up cheetah thanks to 4GB of RAM and a 64-bit processor, while an 8MP camera should provide decent snaps. Not that you should ever resort ot using your tablet as a camera, mind.
Notably, the leaker also states that the Nexus 8 will land sans HTC’s Sense Android skin, further supporting its Nexus DNA.
Past rumours have also suggested dual front-facing speakers, which would comfortably place the Nexus 8 above its tablet rivals in the audio department.
We expect Google to officially reveal the Nexus 8 in October, so stay tuned for more info, as and when we get it.
