So here we are on the cusp of September – and you good folks know what the so-called “’Ber months” signify – the year-end retail season is nearly upon us. It should come as little surprise, therefore, that the tech manufacturers are revving up to introduce their new products for this most crucial of seasons. Google is just one of them – we’ve just heard that an alleged AnTuTu benchmark listing for the rumored Nexus 9 tablet, pointing to an LTE version, has just appeared. Read on to uncover this latest rumor!
This thing could be super speedy
If you’re not in the know, AnTuTu is one of the most popular benchmark tools – an app that users can run to test their devices’ CPUs, GPUs and other key hardware components. (It’s considered one of the better tools because it allows users to customize the tests that can be run.)
According to our source, the purported Nexus 9 excelled at the AnTuTu benchmark, its tester having posted a score of 45,923 – according to AnTuTu’s rating system, this level of performance ranks as “Amazing”.
Further, this supposed Nexus 9 is supposedly packing heat. Our source also says that the tablet is running on an Nvidia Tegra K1 Denver processor, a 64-bit chip (and thus optimized for the next generation of Android, “Android L”, which will feature 64-bit support). The screen will most probably have a display resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (“Quad HD”).
Other interesting stuff – the benchmark results also include an IMEI (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity) number, which accompanies devices that connect to cellular networks. Also, the device is speculated to have LTE – not a surprise there given that its existing Nexus tablets have LTE connectivity.
When does it drop?
Rumor has it that the Google Nexus 9 will be available for purchase on October 31. If so, this could make for a quite a cool Halloween for those of you interested in picking up a new tablet for the holiday season. We can’t offer you folks any details about pricing just yet, but we’re sure that we’ll get updates in that department soon enough – it’s nearly September, after all.
