HTC working on a High performance 8.9-inch Google Nexus 9 Tablet

30 March, 2014 HTC

Nexus 9

We alaready heard rumors about the 8.9" Nexus 9 tablet that Google is working on before, But now more and more Speculation about the Nexus 9 are spreading around the web. The 8.9" Nexus tab is going to be produced by HTC, which is also rumored to be preparing to release a New tablet this year after the One M8, may be its the Nexus 9. Rhoda Alexander, director of tablet and monitor research at IHS Technology, revealed some information about the tablet.

First off, the Google Nexus 9 is likely to be a high-performance device, with volume production expected to start in July or August. She also adds that this tablet will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications, and would not be surprised if its price is higher than $299.



Another report, by Digitimes Research, which reiterates that the Nexus 9 will start production in July. It also confirms the top-shelf specs and price tag, saying that the tablet will feature a screen resolution of more than 2K and a price tag higher than $299.


Nexus 10

Given that the tablet with the highest pixel density so far, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, has 2560x1600 pixels display, and previous Nexus tablet, the Nexus 10 had the same resolution, Google might go as high as that for the Nexus 8.9. Samsung's darling retails for $399, and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is $379.


Thus, if Google prices the larger Nexus slate a tad above the $300 mark, those two might have a veritable competition, given how popular the Nexus line of devices is. Also, if HTC is indeed the one building this slate, we can reasonably expect a premium design, in addition to the premium specs.
