Mysterious LG-V510 is indeed a Nexus device: Evleaks

Remember the LG-V510 which came in news last month. The device was first spotted on Bluetooth Certification in October, and then the device was believed to be the oft-rumoured Nexus 8. Few days after, LG-V510 was tipped to be the refreshed version of Nexus 10 tablet, which was a false claim. Now, serial leaker evleaks has revealed that a tip had confirmed the LG V510 is, a Nexus device. 


According to evleaks tweet, the LG-V510 is indeed a Nexus device. Evleaks has also posted a photo, along the tweet, of the listing using the V510 model number along with buyer details as "USG/GOOGLE_OPEN_16G (UNITED STATES)".

To remind you all, recently a leaked LG Service manual for the LG-V510 has revealed that the device would come with a 8.3-inch 1200x1920p resolution TFT LCD display, 2GB RAM, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front facing camera and 4,600 mAh battery.

The device was measured to be 8.3mm thin (216.8x126.5mm), weighting around 349.38 grams. Unfortunately, the word Nexus is not seen in the Service Manual at all and it does not appear on photographs of the device in the manual (below).

But, given, Google's relationship with LG, with the last two Nexus smartphones, it is possible to see Google choose LG again for making the so-called rumoured Nexus 8.

More information to follow soon. So, stay tuned.
