Nexus 9 allegedly confirmed to be packing a Tegra K1 chipset

NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC

There has been plenty of talk about the upcoming Nexus 9 tablet from HTC. And some of these reports have mentioned that the tablet will be packing NVIDIA’s top of the line Tegra K1 SoC. And a new benchmark listing coming from CPU-Z has reaffirmed these reports with the tablet shown to be running the said chipset with a clock speed of 2.5 GHz.

The Tegra K1 is believed to be a lot powerful compared to the current crop of mobile SoCs, particularly in the graphics department. So it’s clear that Google is looking for the best on its upcoming tablet. Considering that HTC is making the device, we can expect a premium design as well.

Apart from the Tegra K1 chipset, the Nexus 9 is also expected to be featuring an 8.9 inch 1440 x 2048 resolution display, 4GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera and a more polished version of Android L. There is still no clarity on when the Nexus 9 will be announced, but reports have indicated that it could be sooner than expected. Considering that the Nexus 7 was announced in July last year, we should see an announcement of the Nexus 9 anytime soon now.
