Chip maker NVIDIA has posted a lengthy legal document on its website regarding the patent infringement suit it has filed against Qualcomm and Samsung. While it appears to be quite a regular piece of document, the mention of the Tegra K1 powered HTC Nexus 9 has grabbed our attention.
Considering the hype around the next Nexus tablet, it’s likely that this is a slip up from NVIDIA which wasn’t meant to happen. Either way, this comes as confirmation that the upcoming Nexus tablet is indeed made by HTC and will be powered by the powerful Tegra K1 SoC.
The document also mentions that the tablet will be announced sometime in Q3, although no specific date was provided. Considering that we’re in the last few weeks of Q3, the launch should, at least in theory, take place before the end of September. But since launches are usually postponed, so we won’t be surprised if the announcement was pushed to early October as initially rumored. Either way, the fact that confirmation is coming directly from NVIDIA is very reassuring for us fans.
What do you make of this new revelation?
