With all the talk about the Motorola-manufactured Nexus 6 lately, this gem nearly slipped by. The other notable Nexus device release that is expected this year is a tablet manufactured by HTC. The so-called ‘HTC Nexus‘ has been referred to byÂ many names – Flounder, Volantis, Nexus 8, Nexus 9 – but it seems an almost inevitable fact that such a device is going to be released very soon. A new tidbit of information regarding the HTC Nexus has been unveiled today, with the device appearing to go for Wi-Fi certification at the Wi-Fi Alliance.
It’s relatively easy to spot why the device shown here is most likely the HTC Nexus; the company cited is of course HTC, and the operating system of the device is “Android, version: L”. There appear to be a few variants of the device, possibly a LTE-enabled version, but the information here definitely suggests that the HTC Nexus is nearing its release date. The HTC Nexus is expected to be a 8.9-inch device carrying NVIDIA’s new Tegra K1 processor and will be available starting at $399, as per previous rumours.
