We've got plenty of rumours surrounding the Nexus 6, Nexus 8 and a new Nexus 10 but a new tablet is on the cards. According to Android Police, HTC is working on a Nexus 9 device which could be the last Nexus tablet from Google.

Google is launching a new product tonight and Google I/O kicks off this week so we could be able to clear things up on the subject soon. For now, the information on the Nexus 9 is rather thorough. It could be the last Nexus tablet because Google is supposedly going to launch Android Silver.

Nexus 9: Release date, price and specs

The Nexus 9, known as Volantis, will feature an 8.9in display with a 2048 x 1440 resolution (that's 281ppi). It will be powered by an nVidia Logan Tegra K1 64-bit processor along with 2GB of RAM. Storage will be either 16- or 32GB and like other Nexus devices, there's no word on a microSD card slot.

Cameras are reported to be 8Mp at the rear with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and 3Mp at the front. Remains specs are design related and show that the Nexus 9 is thinner than the Nexus 7 at 7.87mm and will weigh 418g. It will use a 'zero-gap' aluminium construction and have front facing stereo speakers. You can see the sites own render based on the source information.

In terms of price, the Nexus 9 is expected to fetch $399 for the cheapest model. The 32GB edition will be $499 and LTE connectivity is a possibility, too.

Although we could hear something on the subject this week, Android Police pegs the Nexus 9 for a Q4 2014 release. It also says that it will be the launch device for Android Lollipop, whether that's 4.5 or 5.0.
