Nexus 9 speculated to be announced tomorrow; official launch in November

Nexus 9 is about to be officially announced tomorrow, and its official launch may be sometime in November. The new Nexus tablet from Google will have an 8.9” screen and it will run on the newest Android OS version, of course. At the moment it is codenamed Volantis (Game of Thrones, anyone?) and according to the latest Forbes reports, it will be seen tomorrow at Nexus 6’s launch.

According to Forbes, a new blog post from tomorrow will show the Nexus 9 along with the new Android L OS. It is supposed to be the first device ever to run on Android L, which makes us even more curious in regards to its specs.

The new Nexus 9 tablet is made by HTC which means it will have some HTC-esque features such as the Boomsound front-facing speakers. The device may have an origami-style stand case similar to those found on Kindle Fire tablets.


There were no disclosed bits of information regarding the hardware specs of the Nexus 9, but Forbes sources say it will go on sale as soon as November 3rd.

Rumors say that the new Nexus tablet will have the following specs:

  • 8.9” IPS LCD with 1920x1200p
  • NVIDIA Tegra K1 Denver 64-bit processor
  • 32 GB storage on board with a microSD slot
  • 8 MP primary camera with a 1.6 MP front sensor.

Nexus 9 16 GB version is speculated to sell for $399, whereas the 32 GB version will have the $499 price tag on.

Motorola’s next Nexus leaked again – Shamu gets new Google kernel; could it be the next Nexus?

Shamu may be Motorola’s next Nexus phone as it transpires in a new leaked photo. The device is said to be a large handset with an impressive hardware construction similar to another new device from Motorola codenamed Quark. The device is said to release sometime in November.

No details are disclosed yet and all we can see is the blurred screen with some general settings. The device seems constant to other leaks and it presents the corner curves Moto X has and the distinct navigation buttons.

The device seems to run on Android L OS and even if the baseband remains unknown, we can see it is running on Google-made kernel built in Mountain View ([email protected]), which is two months newer than the previous leaked version of Shamu. The kernel is pretty important because we can see it is a direct update coming from Google, which means it is possibly a Google product.
