HTC Volantis tablet details leaked

We’ve seen lots of Nexus rumors in the last few months, both smartphone and tablet line. On one hand reports have been saying that the Nexus line is coming to an end in favor of Android Silver, on the other hands however we’ve seen leaks of Nexus 6 and Nexus 8. Nexus line may or may not be coming to an end, but even if that happens it doesn’t mean it will happen this year.

Be that as it may, newest report shows us a render of Nexus 8 tablet made by HTC and its specs, although they refer to it as Nexus 9. The device’s name is HTC Volantis (earlier mentioned as “Flounder”). This report is coming from Android Police and they seem rather certain that the device is coming.

Talking about specs, according to the report the device will feature an 8.9″ display 2048×1440 in resolution (281ppi). It will be powered by Tegra K1 64-bit processor (Nvidia Logan) along with 2GB of RAM. The device will sport an 8MP OIS rear shooter while the one on the front will be 3MP. The device will come with either 16 or 32GB of internal storage and will have stereo front-facing speakers as well as an Aluminum zero-gap construction and should weight 418 grams. There will also be a LTE version of the device and its measurements will be 22.63×15.19×0.79cm or in inches 8.91×5.98×0.31.

Note that the renders doesn’t seem to be final, although the device looks rather Nexusy as it is. 16GB version of the device should cost 399$ while the 32-gig model will be a 100$ more expensive, which brings it to $499. LTE version will raise the price for an additional $100+. The report also says we won’t see this device at Google I/O, it should be release in Q4.

These are some detailed information and they seem quite legit. What do you think of all this?

    Besides the chip set, I’d take a current Nexus. That’s too much money for a 250ppi and 2gb tablet for 2014.
