The device in the picture is smaller in size than the Nexus 10, with speculations rife that it has an 8-inch screen. The image shows that the bezels around the screen in this tablet are much smaller than in the new Nexus 7, which was launched in July this year.
LG, which manufactures the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones, submitted an 8-inch tablet called V510 for Bluetooth certification last week.
There is no word on the specifications, features or launch of the tablet, currently being called Nexus 8.
In July, a few technology websites published images of an 8-inch Nexus tablet, but they were carried as renders instead of leaked photos. However, the new image on Google's website looks exactly the same as the device in the earlier pictures.
Google has 'accidentally leaked' several products in the past. Chairman Eric Schmidt was photographed carrying the Moto X smartphone before it was launched and Nexus 5 was listed on the Google Play website with price before it became official. The Nexus 5 was also captured on video on the company's campus when it announced that the next version of Android will be called KitKat.
Apple's iPad mini with Retina display has a 7.9-inch screen, while Samsung has two models with 8-inch displays. LG recently launched its own tablet with an 8.3-inch screen size.
Google is also expected to soon launch the next version of its Nexus 10 tablet. Now it is being said that the company may launch the next-generation Nexus 10 and the all-new Nexus 8 at the same time.
