HTC has been focusing on their One and Desire series for far too long. The One series has always been shined under a premium light, with the HTC One M7, and it’s successor the One M8, whereas the Desire series was more fitted for the budget to mid-range segment.
With now new-found plans for their next “big thing”, all fingers seem to point towards a Google direction. Yes, HTC will be making the upcoming Nexus 9 tablet (Codenamed Volantis), and we hope it will not disappoint. The next Nexus tablet will be expected to run on an updated Nvidia’s Tegra K1 processor, named “Project Denver”.
It claimed to be the “first 64-bit ARM processor for Android”, clocked at 2.5GHz strong, as the first K1 was 32-bit with similar specs. It might also be paired with a whopping 4GB of RAM, which would set the new standard for RAM, where the current highest is 3GB. More rumours suggest the device to pack an 8.9” Quad HD screen, with a resolution of 2560×1440 just like the LG G3 and Oppo Find 7.
The Nexus 9 will be the first among few to be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra K1, other than Nvidia’s own SHIELD 2014 edition and the Xiaomi Mi Pad. With no further specs or details are confirmed just yet, there’s still a strong possibility that the device will ship out with Android L out of the box. It would make perfect sense to carry on the Nexus tradition of device releases with their latest software.
