Most of us expected the upcoming HTC Nexus 9 to carry some top tier specs and a design that matches the HTC One M8 , although we can expect the mindblowing top- tier 64bit Tegra K1 processor and a gorgeous 2K resolution display in the HTC made tablet ,the same cant be said about the design as a photo leak from our source at UpLeaks shows us that the Nexus 9 will grow up to be just like the Nexii before it and have a matte plastic backplate instead of the expected metal background . A quick recap of the specs shows us that the upcoming Nexus 9 is probably the "One" tablet to replace the 10 inch and 7 inch Nexus tablets in Google's arsenal . The tablet is rumored to pack the dual core version of the Tegra K1 processor ,which has already beaten all mainstream mobile cpu's out of the water thanks to its 64bit architecture . The tablet is rumored to pack atleast 2-3 GB of ram , a 8.9" 2K display with a 4.3 aspect ratio and a 8mp rear camera with LED flash as well as NFC and Wifi 802.11 ac. The 16 and 32GB variants have passed its regulatory standards at FCC and Taiwan's NCC under the model 0P82100 and both models will ship with the next version of Android onboard .Reasons to use plastic over metal was probably a decision on Google's part as all Nexus devices are supposed to maintain easy repairability and durability as well as cost effectiveness when Nexus devices go into manufacturing en-mass . The tablet is rumored to launch sometime this month (Oct 16 , 31) or sometime next Month (November) , The tablet is estimated to cost well over $300 when it launches , but considering the specs , and HTC's reputation as being a top handset maker , the tablet will sell quite well , so if you are interested in getting one first , its advisable that you break a few piggybanks and wait for the upcoming device .
