A Google Nexus 9 tablet by HTC has been something that was speculated on for months, especially the last 3-months most notably. However, there hasn’t been any confirmation or verification until recently.

Now, it would appear that the Nexus 9 by HTC is a foregone conclusion. According to the latest leak from the FCC, it would appear as though renderings of the device have been leaked and show the same model number as earlier leaks this year, something that could go a long way to verifying the legitimacy of the leak right now.

According to the leak, the device will feature Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, something many Android devices have made their greatest progress around. It would appear though that the particular device will be a Wi-Fi only device saving a launch into a cellular driven device for later in the year, or at least a later launch.


The Google Nexus 9 by HTC will feature an NVIDIA K1 processor, and 2GB of RAM, as well as front-facing speakers. Interestingly, the device will feature an aluminum design that might spark some debate about what type of device they’re going for.

Right now, it wouldn’t seem that launch is either imminent, or something that users should expect in the coming months, or even before 2015. Right now there are no plans to release such a device, and the device has only passed through one approval process, and the truth is that HTC, working alongside Google would want to wait, and possibly wait for the launch of the Nexus 6 for this particular tablet.

HTC Nexus 9 release date tipped for October 16

However, there are still just a lot of unknown factors when it comes to the HTC-made Nexus 9. The biggest concern for users and Android fans alike moving forward, and still with so many things just being released by leak – it would appear as though really everything we know about the device currently is speculation.

A solid tablet device put together by HTC would be a huge step in the direction that the company is looking for, especially as Samsung continues to struggle releasing very poor Q3 2014 results.
