October is going to be an exciting month, if the rumours turn out to be true. Those rumours allege that two Nexus devices will be announced sometime this month, one a smartphone and the other a tablet device. That tablet is rumoured to be called the Nexus 9, named predictably thanks to its 8.9-inch display, and today it appears we have our first glimpse of the device in the flesh. Obviously we won’t know if this is the real deal until Google officially announces the device, but we do see the tiny HTC logo at the base of the device with a Nexus logo adorning the middle of it. A matte black finish rounds out basically the only other thing we can determine from this picture of the device.
If anything, the device doesn’t appear like a HTC device at all, taking more cues, perhaps, from the Nexus 5’s matte finish. On the inside, the Nexus 9 is expected to house a NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor powering a Quad HD display with 2560×1600 resolution. Wi-Fi and LTE models are rumoured in 16GB and 32GB variants, but hopefully we’ll be hearing more about this from Google officially in the not too distant future.
