HTC Volantis (Nexus 9) to rock Tegra K1 processor, 5GB of RAM?

More specifications have leaked for the purported HTC Volantis, which will allegedly launch as the next Nexus tablet later this year.

Previously referred to as the Nexus 8, later as the Nexus 9, this HTC Volantis tablet will apparently come with some premium specifications on board.

While nothing is confirmed at this point, well-known tipster @evleaks has now revealed some of the specifications of the purported HTC Volantis, along with a blurry image showing the rear panel of the tablet in a macro shot. The tipster further notes that previous renders and concepts of this tablet were "fake."

According to this leak, the HTC Volantis will sport an 8.9-inch WQXGA display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and pack a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor under the hood, paired with a hefty 5GB of DDR3 RAM. Other purported specs include 64GB of internal storage capacity, a 5- or 8-megapixel rear camera with full HD 1080p recording capabilities, as well as HTC's popular BoomSound audio tech found in the company's latest flagship devices.

In terms of design, HTC has received high praise for its choice of premium materials and form factors for its latest flagships, and the HTC Nexus tablet is expected to look and feel premium as well.

Evleaks gives no information regarding the device's launch or pricing, but earlier reports claimed that the HTC Volantis might make its debut in the fourth quarter of this year, sporting a $399 price tag for a 16GB model and $499 for a 32GB version. On the other hand, no pricing was mentioned for the 64GB model @evleaks details, so it remains to be seen which leak is accurate.

Neither Google nor HTC have made any comments regarding plans to launch a new Nexus tablet together, so it is best to take everything with a grain of salt for now. Evleaks may have a good track record when it comes to leaking upcoming devices, but that's no guarantee for the accuracy of this information.

Google is nonetheless expected to release at least one new Nexus device this year, and an 8.9-inch HTC Nexus tablet would allow it to better compete in the large-screen tablet segment. We'll make sure to keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.
