Hmmm, it does look as though the HTC Nexus 9 (which is also known as the Volantis in other circles) tablet has gone through the rumor mill block more than once in recent times. Additional details of the Nexus 9 did make their way to the Internet earlier this month, and was even speculation that October 8th would be the reveal date for the upcoming device. However, very little else is known about this device, and new information (or should we say, rumor) has pointed to the direction of an October 16th release date of the Nexus 9, at least according to MoDaCo founder Paul O’Brien.
So far, speculation concerning the hardware specifications of the HTC Nexus 9 do point to the likes of a 9” high resolution display, alongside the vaunted NVIDIA Tegra K1 system chip which has been marketed as a ‘192-core chip’. The 9” size can be quite a novelty where Google is concerned, and as for the ‘192-core’ chip, do bear in mind that this figure points to the graphics ‘shader’ cores, which are far smaller processing units compared to the standard CPU cores.
Apart from that, it ought to run on Android L, making it the first tablet with the Android L operating system on board.
