A well-known leaker says that the LG V510 is “indeed” a Nexus tablet, although Google is yet to officially announce it.
This isn’t the first time we hear the LG V510 will be a Nexus device, with past rumors saying that the device is either a future Nexus 8 tablet or a new Nexus 10 model.

Without going into further details about the product, @evleaks has tweeted the message above. As you can see, it’s not clear what kind of Nexus tablet we’re looking at.
Comparatively, the LG V500 is the company’s recently launched LG G Pad 8.3, and the similarity between model numbers seems to indicate that the LG V510 is also an 8-inch device. We’ve seen some reports detailing specs for an LG V510 Nexus 10 tablet, although when it came to size, the device didn’t exactly look like a 10-inch tablet.
We’ll remind you that this is still a rumor at this point, and there’s no way to confirm it just yet. At the same time, we’ll also add that @evleaks has been very accurate with past leaks, so the fact that he’s throwing his weight behind the LG Nexus rumor must mean something.
Interestingly though, if the LG V510 is indeed a Nexus tablet, it looks like Google may have missed out on lots of potential Christmas sales by not launching it sooner. For what it’s worth, only the 32GB Google Nexus 10 is available from the Play Store at this time, with the 16GB model having been listed as out of stock for a few weeks now.
We’ll be back with more details about the LG V510 once we have them.
