Google Nexus 8 powered by Intel Atom processor rumored for 2014

Google Nexus 7 (2013) is an affordable tablet, but it definitely isn’t the most affordable one right now and that is shifting the buyers to more budget friendly options. Google Nexus 7 (2013) is nearly 6 months old and we are hearing rumors that Google is already working on the next generation Nexus tablets. The rumored Google Nexus 8 will have a 8inch display and is likely to be powered by Intel’s Bay Trail processor.


The next generation Google Nexus 8 will also be produced by Asus just like the first two Google Nexus 7 tablets. Since the demand for the Google Nexus 7 is dropping, Google has decided to turn its eyes towards a 8inch market that is gaining immense popularity because of the flurry of Windows 8 tablets.

According to sources, Qualcomm is also a major competitor for the chipset that will power the Google Nexus 8. Since Google and Asus have already worked together on a couple of Google Nexus tablets, it is highly unlikely that any other manufacturer like LG, Samsung or HTC will be getting the chance to come up with a Nexus tablet.

This is just a rumor and speculation of DigiTimes who have been right on a few occasions, so take this information with a pinch of salt.
