HTC Volantis (Nexus 9 aka Flounder) tablet could pack 5GB of RAM, leak says

htc volantis macro shot

We’ve seen HTC Volantis/Flounder/Nexus 9 (whatever you want to call it) leak on several occasions. First we’ve seen the render of the device plus a revealing list of specifications, after which a document leaked containing the codename “Flounder”. New rumors are in, this time courtesy of a trusted leaker, @evleaks (as was the mentioned document).

This time around we get an alleged macro shot of the device along with a list of its specifications, though they’re somewhat different from the ones leaked before. According to @evleaks earlier concepts/renders were fake and this is the real deal. So, the leaker says that the device will sport a silver aluminum unibody construction. As for specifications, the device will feature a 64-bit Tegra K-1 processor, 5GB of DDR3 RAM (OMG, although he says this is not final), an 8.9″ 2560×1600 display and a 64GB of internal storage. The leaker is not sure whether the device will sport a 5MP or 8MP camera. He claims BoomSound speakers will also be a part of the package.

This is a lot to take in. 5GB of RAM? Damn. The leak says that’s not final, but still, that would be weird and extremely nice at the same time. We like what we see, how about you?
