Google finally shows the expected new Nexus tablet. The HTC Nexus 9 is now official and is presented as the best Android tablet to date. Much has been said about her, since we knew her code name (Volantis) for the first time and until NVIDIA herself confirmed her arrival. The truth is that we are facing a tablet that is a renewal of the seven-inch Nexus, but thanks to its screen width we can also consider it as the new Nexus 10.
HTC remanufactured a Nexus four years later and does it in the form of a tablet. Let's take a look at all the details, but we already anticipate that we want one. We love Nexus and this tablet has all the ballots to continue reaping the usual successes of the most famous range of Android. High resolution screen, a beast inside like Tegra K1 and a very thin body.
HTC Nexus 9, features and technical specifications
The new Nexus 9 incorporates a 8.9 ″ screen with resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and 4: 3 format. Inside we have a 64-bit processor with Tegra K1 and of course, Android 5.0 Lollipop. In fact the new Nexus 9 is presented as the first Nexus that will come with the new version.
Here you have the complete list of the features of the new HTC Nexus 9:
- 8.9 ″ IPS LCD display with resolution 2048 × 1536 pixels, double touch to wake up (281ppi)
- Gorilla Glass 3
- NVIDIA Logan 64-bits (Tegra K1)
- 2GB RAM
- 6700mAh battery with fast charging (not wireless)
- 16 / 32GB storage
- 8MP OIS f / 2.4 rear camera
- 1.6MP front camera
- Front speakers
- 228.3 × 153.7 × 7.95mm and 425 grams of weight
- LTE option
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
Many details to comment on the specifications of the Nexus 9. It stands out above all Tegra K1, the same SoC that we have in the NVIDIA Shield tablet or the MiPad. And this implies several things, but the most direct is the official arrival of the 64 bits to Android. With official support directly from the Nexus range.
The Nexus 9 will also incorporate BT 4.0, NFC, Wifi ac and HTC Boomsound speakers. Of course, we miss the inclusion of microSD card.
It can be booked from the day October 17 on Google Play, while it will be available on November 3. The wait we think it's worth it. We simply hope that the new Android, Material Design and this new Nexus 9 will put all the lights back on Android apps for tablets.
