8.9-inch HTC Volantis rumored to have 5GB of RAM, might be an Android Silver tablet

8.9-inch HTC Volantis rumored to have 5GB of RAM, might be an Android Silver tablet
HTC is expected to re-enter the tablet market this year with a slate that’s currently called HTC Volantis (aka Flounder). We first heard about it last month, and now new and intriguing details have been revealed.

According to @evleaks, the early renders of the HTC Volantis were fake. Reportedly, the tablet might feature a whopping 5GB of RAM, although this isn’t “final.” Other features that the Volantis should offer at launch include an 8.9 inch display with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, BoomSound speakers, 5MP / 8MP rear camera, silver aluminum unibody, 64GB of storage space, and a 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 processor (a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 version may also be tested - however, Snapdragon 810-based devices aren't expected to be commercialized before 2015).

@evleaks posted an “HTC Volantis macro shot” which shows the codename Flounder, while mentioning “Android Silver OS Alpha 1.4.” So the tablet might be one of the first to be included in Google’s yet to be announced Android Silver program.

Previous rumors had it that the Volantis would be launched as a new Nexus tablet. While we can’t confirm this, we’d say that Android Silver and the Nexus line are probably not excluding each other. Of course, it remains to be seen if we’re right on this one.

The new HTC tablet could be available starting the fourth quarter of the year.
