Whoops. Google hasn’t announced plans for its next Nexus tablet yet, and neither has HTC… but the companies are widely expected to be working together on a 9 inch tablet sporting an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.
And you know what? Those expectations appear to be right on the money. A legal filing from NVIDA related to a lawsuit against Qualcomm and and Samsung has this little tidbit:
“The HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014, is also expected to use the Tegra K1.”
If there’s anyone HTC and Google who would probably know that an HTC Nexus 9 is on the way, it’d be the company making the chip that powers the tablet.
It’ll probably be a little while before we see an official announcement, but word on the street is that the tablet will features an 8.9 inch, 2048 x 1440 pixel display, NVIDIA’s 64-bit processor, stereo front-facing speakers, and more.
