Ok so we don’t really know what’s happening with the Nexus line with Android Silver just around the corner in 2015. There’s been no mention of a new Nexus handset and nothing official as far as a Nexus tablet. We do know that Android Police has just leaked out an image and specs of what’s being called the Nexus 9 Tablet, manufactured by HTC.
The tab, codenamed Volantis, is coming from a strong enough source that AP feels pretty confident in this one. The leaked specs call for a 8.9 inch 2048 x 1440 display at only .31 inches thick in an aluminum zero-gap construction. Tucked inside that tiny frame is 2GB of RAM, 16 to 32GB of storage, a NVIDIA Logan64-bit processor (Tegra K1), 8 megapixel back side camera with OIS, 3 megapixel front facing camera, Wi-Fi support and the possibility for LTE in an upgraded model.
Pricing allegedly puts the base 16GB model at $399 with the 32GB version going for $499. The LTE model is rumored to be a $600+ premium set up but with all info anything can change. The Nexus 9 a.k.a. Volantis is expected to ship alongside Android L in Q4 2014. Don’t look for this bad boy anytime soon.
Well geeks, have you been looking for another HTC made Nexus device? Were you expecting a Nexus Handset instead? Personally I have yet to grab onto a Nexus device, I’ve been a Samsung guy since my first Captivate. I almost bought a Nexus 5 before I got my Galaxy S4, almost. What are you guys rocking in the device region?
