‘HTC Nexus 9′ revealed in NVIDIA legal documents, expected in Q3 2014

The “Volantis” tablet from HTC has been tossed through the Rumor Mill more than a few times, with the first sightings dating back to mid-June. Now, a new set of legal documents from NVIDIA is lending even more credence to the upcoming tablet.

NVIDIA has published a long list of legal documentation [PDF] on its website, a result of its ongoing legal battles between Qualcomm and Samsung. While there is quite a bit of text to sift through, the documents reveal on the 41st page that HTC is indeed working on a Nexus-branded tablet. Actually, the documents reveal that NVIDIA’s upcoming Tegra K1 processor will be powering quite a few devices, including Lenovo’s Terminator S9 Smart TV, and Google’s Project Tango development kit. The “HTC Nexus 9″ is listed there for everyone to see.

Moreover, NVIDIA says the Nexus 9 from HTC is expected to launch sometime in the third quarter of 2014, but unfortunately no specific dates are provided. The document lacks any additional information, like specifications, but if the tablet’s launch is indeed set for sometime in the third quarter of this year, further details should be revealed soon enough.

      Also would be cool if was it was the newer nvidia’s denver x64 CPU current cortex CPU actually bottlenecks the K1

      The Htc Nexus 9 would be a tablet (9 signifying it will be in the 9 inch range). You might have got confused since the article used a Htc smartphone pic to talk about a tablet.

        lol yea i read briefly and look at pic

    They better hurry because Q3 ends this month. I would prefer with a Tegra K1 running, that Google would unveil it running Adroid L(ion) along with their Nexus 5 (2014) phone. Which would put the launch at end of October or early November.

      Google’s next event is October 8, I would think that they would release the next phone/tablet at an event and not just put out in the market.

        Oct 8th is HTC event not Google. All nexus launches have been Google events, so unlikely it will be shown at that event.

          D’oh, got the events backward.
