Rumor: HTC purportedly working on two more tablets apart from the Nexus 9
posted by Peter K. / Jul 22, 2014, 2:37 AM
HTC's rumored slates are apparently codenamed T7 and T12, so we can assume that we are talking about 7- and 12-inch tablets. There are, however, no leaked specs about the slates that HTC is reportedly working on. If we take into account the countless rumors that regard the Nexus 9, it is safe to assume that if HTC is indeed working on such a duet of slates, then its ones might not stray away far from the rumored Volantis, at least spec-wise.
Speaking of it, the HTC-made Nexus is said to come with a 2K display (2048 x 1440 pixels), 8MP OIS-enabled rear snapper, and a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, operating in concert with 2GB of RAM. The alleged storage options will allow potential buyers to choose between a 16 and a 32GB version of the tablet. It is speculated that Google will put a $399 price tag for the 16GB version, while the 32GB one will retail at $499.
As usual, bring a relatively large bucket of refined salt and take this piece of news along with a large pinch of it. A possible announcement of Google's HTC-made Nexus tablet is due alongside the official release Android L. Should the speculations about HTC's T7 and T12 hold water, we can assume that HTC will either unveil them along Google's announcement of its next Nexus or shortly after.

Why would Google charge $100 extra for a steps up in storage? Only Apple rips people off like that...

Probably because no OEM wants to lose money on selling nexus ?

The flash soldered onboard is different from the flash chips used in microSD cards but yes the price shouldn't be that much higher unless they are going with a faster module with error correction as found in SSDs.

Who told you that HTC will make next Nexus??? LOL HTC have contract with Apple. So they could use the Apple's tricks , for free. Let them make iPads for Apple instead, not to use only the apple's propadanda and media. Right?

It's probably all fake. HTC is working hard on their replacement to the One M8, i.e something with a non-fvcked camera. If HTC is making a Nexus tablet, I highly doubt HTC is working on another tablet so they can compete with themselves. On the other hand, spending time on tablets with the tablet market beginning to flatten out and rampant self-sabotage does seem like the typical bad management that HTC is known for.

I'd be disappointed it has a 4:3 screen, kind of a waste of the K1 4:3 is terrible for gaming compared to widescreens (16:9 or 16:10)

Not sure, the rumors claim its 4:3, hopefully they are wrong If they are right then there's the Nvidia Shield tablet (16:10) Design looks kind of ugly and big (IMO) But has the 32-bit K1, shouldn't be much slower 64-bit, but should be less efficient (unfortunately, kind of funny the Nvidia tablet doesnt have their best chip, they might be saving the 64-bit K1 for the Shield 2 handheld) And has stock Android (probably with quite fast updates)

Been waiting for the nexus 8 to come out and glad they teamed with HTC again. However, if the T12 is a 12' inch tablet, I might have to wait for that one! Glad their will soon be another tablet worth getting, as I don't want an Ipad and all the other offerings are subpar.
