It’s just a matter of couple of weeks when we get to hear the first official word from Google regarding its upcoming tablet Nexus 9 made by HTC probably along with its much rumored and much awaited flagship Nexus 6. But we all know that it’s a tradition in the tech industry that before a device goes official, it has to pass through FCC. Well, the Nexus 9 has now passed through process and we are still waiting for the Nexus 6 to get its approval from FCC.
However, the FCC listing does not give us a strong indication that this is Nexus 9, but it does state that it is an HTC tablet and as per the current status, HTC is certainly not working indigenously for a tablet of its own! This probably means that it would be non-other, but Nexus 9. FCC has also shed out some information on the specs of the device that shows it to be having a 8.9inch display with 2560×1440 pixel resolution, a 64-bit Tegra K1 SoC chipset, 3GB of RAM, 16MP of camera and the Google’s recently announced Android L on-board. The connectivity options for the device include NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
Earlier rumrs quote the tablet to be arriving sometime in mid-October but recent rumors have claimed to be arriving as soon as this Wednesday i.e. October 8. It might happen that Google might announce the tablet on 8th and later release it after a weeks time.
