Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 may have been recently seen in the leak of a Chromium source code, but Artem Russakvoskii of Android Police said such a leak may likely not mean anything.

According to Russakvoskii, what has been seen was just basically a reference to Nexus 6 and Nexus 8, which was inside the code. There was no information about the processor, resolution and display size, which can at times be seen in source codes. Thus, the leak from the Chromium source code is not detailed, though it somehow confirms that the rumored Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 are really coming.

While tech fanatics are always delighted to see new devices emerging from OEMs and tech firms, they also have some spec details on their wish lists of what they want to see in the next device; and most often, they take it from the new devices launched by other manufacturers. For Nexus devices, some would love to see it with better rendering, high resolution such as 2k or ultra high definition and new colors.

With regard to its release date, Sundar Pichai, Google's senior vice-president, said, the Nexus phone will not come out in the first half of 2014. Looking back, Google released the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 in the latter half of years 2012 and 2013 respectively. The Nexus 6 may follow the same trend, coming out in late 2014.

As for the Nexus 8 tablet, it may come earlier than Nexus 6, just like Nexus 7 2013 which came out in July. Google's I/O 2014 June 25 to 26 is getting nearer, and the tech world may hear Google announce its next tablet.

For the manufacturers, it will likely be LG for Nexus 6 and HTC for Nexus 8. Nexus 6 is said to have some details of LG G3.
