New leak points to 8.9-inch Nexus tablet – HTC Volantis

According to a new leak about an imminent Nexus device in the works, a new Nexus tablet is being developed by HTC. The tablet will be an 8.9-inch Nexus device and will be called the HTC Volantis.

Going by the leaked details about the new Nexus tablet in the pipeline, the HTC Volantis tablet will boast quite a few 'firsts' for a Nexus device. Most significantly, the 8.9-inch screen size of the tablet will marks a notable deviation for the usual 7- or 10.1-inch screen size of Android tablets. Moreover, the tablet will have a somewhat weird screen resolution of 2048x1440.

The new leak also suggest that one of the interesting specifications of the HTC Volantis tablet will be the processor --- probably a 64-bit NVIDIA Logan, which is the new codename for NVIDIA's slightly new Tegra K1 chip.

The image which accompanies the leaked specifications of the HTC Volantis tablet appears to be more of imaginative rendering of an artist rather than the design of an actual device. The leaked image shows that the tablet will not have any of HTC's characteristic markings and designs, including front-facing speakers. Rather, the tablet will be a mix of Nexus aesthetics, LG history, Samsung plasticity, and an Apple device-like front appearance.

Though the HTC Volantis is not likely to be unveiled anytime in the near future, it is speculated that the cost of the tablet will be higher than that of the current Nexus 7 tablet.
