Its been rumoured for quite sometime that HTC is the next contracted partner by Google to manufacture a Nexus tablet, and honestly after getting my hands on the 90% made of aluminium HTC One M8, I’m glad they did, because it will be a hell of a Nexus tablet, if the following rumours are to be believed.
According to Android Police’s source, the next Nexus tablet is internally called the Nexus 9 and it will be sporting a housing made out of metal. The source also give up the key specs of the Nexus 9. It will feature a 8.9-inch (2048 x 1440) display with 281 ppi, the tab will be powered by Nvidia’s 64-bit processor – Tegra K1 (kind of make sense as Nvidia and Google announced recently their newest partnership) and backed up by 2GB of RAM. Additionally there will be 16/32GB of built-in storage, an 8MP OIS camera on the back, 3MP camera up front, stereo front facing speakers (assuming above and below the screen like the HTC Boomsound, but probably not with that technology).
