Expected to be launched later this month.
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has reportedly approved the upcoming Google Nexus 9 tablet, scheduled for official unveiling later this month.
Anticipated to be rolled out on 16 October, the new device is likely to have a new aspect ratio giving it a square shape.
The new tablet would feature an 8.9in Quad HD display, NVIDIA’s latest Tegra K1 processor, about 4GB RAM, and an 8mp rear-facing camera.
With reports on cellular connectivity yet to be revealed, the new 0P82100 model of Nexus 9 would be a WiFi-only variant, while a 4G model would be launched separately.
With the first and the second generation of Nexus tablet’s hardware being built by Asus, Google has now teamed with HTC for the next generation Nexus 9 tablet.
During this month’s launch event, Google is also expected to roll out Motorola-built Nexus 6 smartphone with 5.7in Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, and front-facing stereo speakers.
