September 15, 2014

While HTCand Google have yet to officially announce their plans for the Nexus 9, at this point we pretty much know for certain that the device is more than just a rumor. In fact, Nvidia even named the device in its court paperwork for a lawsuit against Qualcomm recently.

While nothing is 100% certain, the Nexus 9 is believed to have a premium design and will be powered by a Tegra K1 with perhaps as much as 4GB of RAM. We also will get the final version of Android L and some pretty cool accessories including a keyboard case that we first heard about earlier this month.


While we’ve yet to see any leaks regarding the HTCNexus 9’s final design, we now have what appears to be the actual Nexus 9 keyboard case. The images were first spotted in China’s National Communications Commission database and seem to fall in line with what we believe the official case may look like, though the button layout appears to be slightly different.

Of course, we still can’t confirm that this really is a case destined for the Nexus 9, but we would not be surprised if the keyboard pictured above is in fact the real deal. It’s also unclear if this is the final hardware, or just a prototype design.

What do you think of the keyboard accessory, and of the Nexus 9 in general? Let us know in the comments below.
