The upcoming Nexus 9 tablet has been confirmed by the Wall Street Journal, citing sources withing Google’s Mountain View lair.
The HTC Volantis tablet has been rumoured for months and it is supposed to ship with a powerful Nvidia processor, a high resolution screen and HTC’s trademark build quality.
WSJ says the tablet is a 9-incher. Details remain sketchy, but we know it is supposed to launch with 64-bit Android L and an appropriate 64-bit capable chip in tow. The silicon comes from Nvidia and chances are the Nexus 9 will be the launch device for the Denver-based Tegra K1 64-bit.
Although WSJ did not talk about specs, previous leaks point to a 2048x1536 display, aluminium zero-gap construction, 2GB of RAM and 16GB to 32GB of internal storage.
