Tablets aren't dying: they're getting better and better. In the midst of a major turmoil, HTC management believes that a new tablet device could help the brand in its turnaround face.
It looks like HTC, best known for its high-end Android phones, is likely to announce a brand new tablet. The news comes from a Chinese tech website which reported that HTC will soon launch an 8.9-inch tablet.
The report said that the tablet (dubbed, "HTC T1H") will apparently launch with China Mobile, or it could rebranded as a China Mobile device.
The upcoming tablet device from HTC will flaunt an 8.9 inch screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. Moreover, the device will be powered by an octa core Allwinner H8 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage space.
The rumored slate is believed to come with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, alongside a 1.6-megapixel front-facing shooter. The tablet will come with the latest version Lollipop with HTC's Sense UI on top.
It's being reported that the HTC T1H will get a 6,700mAh battery fitted inside. It will also offer 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity.
HTC To Launch Re-branded Nexus 9?
Back in 2014, HTC re-entered the tablet market with the Google Nexus 9. It wasn't exactly a great success for the company, however, as it was plagued by marketing issues.
Despite that HTC has been rumoured to come with yet another tablet, this time around with its own branding.
Earlier this year, Upleaks announced on Twitter, "The 1st HTC branded Tablet will be based on the Nexus 9，dimension is almost same。but spec...And you won't see it in Q1 2015."
We don't know much about the tablet, however, if we go by the latest published report, then we should expect the device to be more-or-less similar to that of the Google Nexus 9.
The Google Nexus 9 (Rs. 27,000 onwards), comes with 8.9-inch QHD display, a 64-bit version of the Nvidia Tegra K1, 2GB of RAM and is available in 16GB and 32 GB variants. It also has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.6 megapixel front camera. The makers have added a 6700 mAh battery which could last for over 9 hours. It also has Android 5.0 Lollipop, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G LTE connectivity.
We'll find more about the so-called HTC T1H tablet on April 8, when the company will unveil the HTC One M9 Plus and the HTC One E9. The high-profile press event is scheduled to happen in Beijing, China.
