It also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 2.7GHz processor. The camera is a modest 13 megapixels and uses a 3220hAh battery. The handset will be made available in both 32GB and 64GB memory variants, and will hit the shelves in November after pre-orders in late October.
The Nexus 9 tablet, manufactured by HTC, has an 8.9 inch Gorilla Glass 3 screen, 2048 x 1536 resolution giving it a 287ppi count. All this is supported by a 2.3 GHz 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, 2GB RAM and a 6700mAh battery. Both 16GB and 32GB storage options are available as there is no SD slot. The tablet is available to pre-order on 17th October and hits the shops on 3rd November.
