Leaked image shows HTC Nexus 9 with matte plastic back, no metal in sight
Google is rumored to be making a new large-sized Nexus tablet, and it’s said to have recruited HTC for the task of creating a Nexus 9. Now, the first image allegedly showing the back of the upcoming device has surfaced, and it reveals a device with a matte plastic back and no trace of the earlier rumored metal build. The image comes courtesy of Upleaks, and we can't vouch for its authenticity, so do take it with a grain of salt.
In fact, this leaked image shows a Nexus 9 very reminiscent of the current Nexus 5 in terms of design, down to the large camera eye and edged vertical Nexus logo on the back.
You can’t tell much more by this image, but with the Nexus 9 already having cleared FCC certification, we’re definitely expecting to see more of Google’s next tablet soon.
To freshen up your mind, the HTC Nexus 9 aka Volantis is expected to arrive with a sharp, 9-inch display with a QHD resolution (2560x1600). The most prominent feature of the Nexus 9, however, might be its Android L software guts combined with the power of Nvidia’s Tegra K1 chip with Kepler graphics with 192 shader cores, one of the most powerful SoCs on the market when it comes to gaming.
