Leaks and rumors about the Nexus 9, which is also believed to be HTC Volantis, have started doing rounds. According to the serial tipster @evleaks, the HTC Volantis will have a silver aluminium unibody and BoomSound speakers. If we believe the rumors, this could be a seriously good looking tablet. The tipster also mentions that previous renders and concepts of the device were ‘fake’, so it remains to be seen what it will look like.
It is important to note the serial leaker also shared an image of the tablet. The image is an extreme close-up, which does not reveal much about the look of the slate. It has highlighted two watermarks. One of which reads ‘Flounder’, which is a code-name that’s previously been associated with the Nexus 8, and the other references Android Silver, which further suggests that this is a stock Android device.
Interestingly, the device includes a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor and 5GB of RAM, which @evleaks describes as ‘non-final’. The leaker also claims the slate will have an 8.9 inch display and that currently it is equipped with a 1680 x 1050 screen. According to the leak, the device will apparently ship with a 2560 x 1600 display.
The tablet is said to be packed with 64GB of storage, with a 5MP camera which can shoot in 1080p, though @evleaks has hinted that it may ship with an 8MP snapper. [@evleaks]
