The supposed HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet has been rumored relatively often over the last few months, with renders of the device leaking and the a supposed keyboard accessory for it passing through the NCC. Now, the alleged Nexus 9 itself has passed through FCC testing. The documents, first noticed by Blogofmobile, show the device as carrying the model number 0P82100, which matches what appeared in leaks earlier this year.
The documents show that the device will feature both BlueTooth and NFC connectivity. Although this specific FCC filing makes no specific mention of cellular connectivity, it is believed that the 0P82100 model of the Nexus 9 will be the WiFi-only variant, with a 4G model launching separately. Other alleged features of the device include an NVIDIA K1 processor, an aluminum design, 2GB of RAM, and front-facing speakers.
While the FCC certification of the device still leaves a lot of answers unknown, it does mean that we are nearing a launch of the Nexus 9. Perhaps we’ll even see it launch alongside the Nexus 6.
