LG V510 Tipped To Be Nexus Tablet Yet Again

LG to launch the G Pad 8.3 in 20 additional markets

LG is having a pretty great run this year. Not only has it brought the LG G2, G Pad 8.3, and G Flex to the table this year, all of which are great products, it also brought the world the Nexus 5 this past Halloween. Well, it may not be done just yet, as the LG V510 could be an upcoming Nexus tablet.

The LG G Pad 8.3 (LG-V500) is a solid tablet that both offers a nice spec sheet and comes in at a great price of $349. Now an unnamed device with a very similar model number to that of the G Pad 8.3 has popped up again, and has been tipped off that it will be an upcoming Nexus tablet– yet again.


The LG V510 looks to share a majority of the same specifications found on the G Pad 8.3 (Check out our review here), including 8.3 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200, 16GB storage, 2GB RAM, 5 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and more. The processor running the show has yet to be divulged, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the device shipped with the same Snapdragon 600 or even the Snapdragon 800. The addition of the micro SD  card slot was also not mentioned, which is something that has largely been missing from the Nexus family since the Nexus S.

Since the model number popped up before, it was also rumored that the LG V510 could also be the G Pad 8.3 with LTE connectivity, but a service manual for the device mentions a stock Android experience.

We’ll just have to wait and see what exactly this device turns out to be, but we certainly won’t be complaining about an 8 inch Nexus tablet. That’s for sure.

    Nope, It’s not a Nexus, it’s being sold on Google Play as a Google Play Edition.
