The much-hyped Google Nexus 9 tablet has been rumored over the last few months. According to latest buzz, the HTC-manufactured Nexus 9 is expected to go on sale in Taiwan by the end of this year, FocusTaiwan reports.
The new premium made Nexus tablet, which reportedly will be unveiled Oct. 16, is likely to hit Taiwanese stores in the fourth quarter, Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia, told a press briefing in New York.
Well looks like HTC has finally accepted that they will indeed inter the much crowded tablet marker with the Nexus 9. Not too long ago, the Nexus 9 received official nod for sale in Taiwan. Last month, a report suggested that the Android L powered Nexus 9 would debut on October 16.
Google has been long associated with different vendors to build Nexus range of devices. The first and second generation Nexus 7 tablet was built by Asus. The 10-inch version, meanwhile, was manufactured by Samsung.
HTC Nexus 9 - What to expect?
Reportedly the Nexus 9 tablet would come with an 8.9-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1660 pixels, 64-bit Tegra K1 processor, 5GB of RAM, 64GB of native storage, 8MP rear-facing camera, and HTC Boom Sound speakers.
As always, it's better to take this rumor as a pinch of salt. If the specs are true, the Google Nexus 9 is going to give rather tough competition to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S and the upcoming Apple iPad Air 2.
HTC is holding an event on October 8, where it is expected to unveil a new range of devices, including the HTC One M8 Eye and a rugged Action camera.
