[LEAKED] Volantis a 9-inch Nexus Tablet by HTC

 

According to a new report from Android Police, however, hope could be on its way. A new leak is revealing specs and early mock-ups of a new nine-inch tablet from HTC, codenamed “Volantis”.

Here’s a spec list for you:
  • 8.9″ Display at 2048×1440 (281ppi)
  • NVIDIA Logan 64-bit processor (Tegra K1)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • 8MP OIS main camera, 3MP front facing camera
  • Aluminum zero-gap construction
  • Stereo front-facing speakers
  • 8.91″x5.98″x0.31″ body (that’s 22.63×15.19×0.79cm)
  • 418g (or 427g with LTE) (that’s 14.74/15.1 ounces)
According to the info from Android Police the device isn't expected to be released any time before Q4 2014 and certainly won't be a part of Google I/O but they've also scored some possible price points. If the info is correct, we could see the tablet start at $399 for the 16GB version, 32GB going for $499 and LTE connectivity would push it into the $600 plus range. In any case, even though the rumors have been rampant for a while now it seems we'll still be waiting a while yet before anything official happens.

What are your thoughts on Volantis? Would you be satisfied if HTC made the next Nexus tablet?
