The Nvidia legal document was posted on the company's site (it has since been removed), and was spotted by a blog called the Bright Side of News. The document reportedly states, "the HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014, is also expected to use the Tegra K1."
While the third quarter release for HTC Nexus 9 seems unlikely, HTC on Wednesday has sent out invites for an October 8 event in New York. Although the invite doesn't reveal anything, it suggests a smartphone and shows two women seemingly capturing a selfie, along with the tag line 'double Exposure'.
The alleged HTC Nexus 9 is anticipated to come with Android L - which has been rumoured to be named Android Lemon Meringue Pie (LMP). The purpoted specifications were recently leaked in an AnTuTu benchmark listing pointing towards an LTE variant alongside the expected Wi-Fi only variants.The alleged listing with name 'Google Nexus 9' showed the tablet running on an Nvidia Tegra K1 Denver processor, which is a 64-bit chip - ideal for the upcoming Android L release. The display resolution was listed as Quad-HD (1440x2560 pixels), for the rumoured screen size of 8.9-inch or 9-inch, as learnt from the previous leaks. The AnTuTu benchmark results also revealed a score 45,923, which as per the test's rating system is 'Amazing' performance for a tablet device.
