Start64!We were wondering what's up with the Nexus 8, or the rumored premium Google tablet, made by HTC, and today a barrage of leaks might be hinting at an encroaching announcement. First we have a source claiming that the tablet, which has been referred to as Volantis or Flounder so far, is codenamed T1, and will feature an 8 MP rear camera, alongside 1.6 MP front-facer.

A little digging in the tablet's firmware has also returned the unsurprising fact that it will ship with Android L out of the box, without any HTC Sense overlay shenanigans.

Meanwhile, the Nexus 8 tablet might have already be doing the certification rounds in South Korea, as from the local FCC came this gem of an entry below, that depicts a device coded "0P8210000" to have passed certification. The back of this gear was shown about a month ago by @evleaks, marked Flounder. It carried the same letter and number sequence, and was claimed to be of the real Nexus 8.
