After months of leaks, Google has finally unveiled its latest Nexus tablet, dubbed as the Nexus 9, manufactured in collaboration with their long-time partner HTC.
The Nexus 9 comes with a 8.9-inch display sporting a resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels resolution, and comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed out of the box.
The tablet features brushed metal sides, and Google says its size is “small enough to easily carry around in one hand, yet big enough to work on.” HTC Nexus 9 also features a keyboard folio case that magnetically attaches itself to the tablet, allowing users with multiple angles to help you work on it like a laptop.
HTC Nexus 9 is powered by a Tegra K1 processor, Kepler GPU, 16/32GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera for photos and videos, a 1.6MP front-facing camera, and a 6,700 mAh battery to make sure there’s enough juice for the tablet.
HTC Nexus 9 will be up for pre-orders from October 17th, and will hit retail on November 3rd. As far as the pricing is concerned, the 16GB version comes with a $399 price tag, while the 32GB variant costs $499. There’s an LTE-enabled version as well, and is priced at a higher $599. The Nexus 9 will go on sale in three color options: Indigo Black, Lunar White, Sand.
