It has been a while since I heard of a tablet from HTC. This time, a 8.9-inch tablet codename Volantis appears as leaked information with indication that it is from HTC and might be the next Nexus tablet. I think the device in the picture is just a reference and might not be the actual device.
As you might know, Nexus devices are usually out to bring the best of Google OS and apps. They are without any UI from the manufacturers. So, do not expect Sense UI to be anywhere near this device. Here is a list of specs of the Volantis (usually I think this is just a codename while in development) from HTC.
- Aluminum zero-gap construction with tapered side
- 8.9-inch Display at 2048×1440 (281ppi), 4:3 ratio
- 8.91″x5.98″x0.31″ body (22.63 x 15.19 x 0.79cm)
- 418g (or 427g with LTE)
- NVIDIA Logan 64-bit processor (Tegra K1)
- 2GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage
- Stereo front-facing speakers
- 8MP OIS main camera, 3MP front facing camera
Hopefully, we can hear more news about it at Google I/O which is happening on the 25th and 26th of June 2014.
