A Nexus 8? Mysterious tablet pictured in KitKat promotional material

Google logoGoogle's Android.com promotional site was revamped with the launch of the Nexus 5, and it seems that Google is already using it to drop hints about its next device. If you head to the Apps & Entertainment section of the new site and scroll down to the second large image, you'll see a picture of a woman holding a tablet that we've never seen before.

First spotted by Britoid on The Verge Forums, the image shows a tablet that looks to have a screen that's about 8 inches. It's running KitKat (you can tell from the status bar icons), and it has on-screen navigation buttons. Unlike the current Nexus tablet, the Nexus 7, the bezels look to be very compact. The Nexus 10 is a year old now, and many expected Google to have announced a replacement for it by now, but a smaller 8 inch tablet would be a surprise.

Google Nexus 8

While this is a generic page for Android, Google has never used "fake" or generic devices in promotional material before. In fact, just above this picture is a girl holding a Nexus 7. We have seen Google leak their own devices like this before: the Nexus 5 was first spotted in an official video from Google, where an employee was casually filming the KitKat statue with it. If you thought the Nexus news grind was over, think again! We'll keep our eyes peeled for more on this one.
