There have been rumors on the web regarding HTC Nexus 9 for quite some time now and what journalists have uncovered recently could be the first solid proof that the device exists and it packs a powerful Tegra K1. 

The information was found in legal documents filed by Nvidia in its legal battle with Qualcomm and Samsung. In the document, Nvidia perhaps mistakenly wrote that the HTC Nexus 9 will be releasing in the third quarter this year and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra K1. The document was later edited to remove that portion, but screenshot was already taken.

So far, the information we have regarding HTC Nexus 9 came mostly from leaks and no original source. This too is a leak, but it’s a credible one. It shines light on what the device packs in terms of processor and when we can expect to see it.

Earlier rumors suggest that HTC Nexus 9 will be a 8.9-inch device with a display resolution of 2048 x 1440 pixels. It will have Nvidia Tegra K1 64-bit processor, which is now confirmed, and 2 GB of RAM. It will also feature a 8 MP OIS camera on the rear and 3 MP camera on the front. It will also have front-facing stereo speakers. The leaked price of the WiFi-only 16 GB version of HTC Nexus 9 is $399. It is supposed to be released along with the next major version of Android, Android L.

We’ll know more in the coming months. Until then, we just have to keep our eyes out for more information for this high-end and somewhat pricey Nexus device.
