The Nexus 9 is being manufacturers by HTC and features an aluminum body

The Google I/O conference is kicking off this week, and Google is set to announce a new 8.9” Android-powered tablet at the conference. The so-called Nexus 9 tablet was reportedly designed by HTC, and like its flagship One (M8) smartphone will be constructed of aluminum.
At the heart of the 0.31” thick, 418-gram device is a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor (with 2GB RAM). The aforementioned 8.9” display features a resolution of 2048x1440 (281 ppi), and 16GB/32GB storage options will be offered to consumers along with Wi-Fi/Wi-Fi + LTE versions. Other features include an 8MP rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 3MP front-facing camera, and front-facing stereo speakers.

For comparison’s sake, Samsung’s new 8.4” Galaxy Tab S comes with either a Exynos 5 Octa processor (1.9 GHz quad-core + 1.3 GHz quad-core) for Wi-Fi models or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (2.3GHz quad-core) for LTE models — each paired with 3GB of RAM. The 8.9” display features a screen resolution of 2560x1600, and like the Nexus 9, it will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage capacities and include LTE connectivity on the options sheet.
The new 8.4” Galaxy Tab S doesn’t come with a swanky aluminum body, which allows it to top the scales at just 294 grams.
According to Android Police, the Nexus 9 will be priced at $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 32GB model, which mirrors pricing for the 8.4” Galaxy Tab S.
