Alleged HTC Nexus 9 Makes An Appearance At FCC

A rather ominous sounding 0P82100 tablet from HTC has made its way to the FCC, further fueling rumors about a Nexus 9 coming from this Chinese manufacturer. Unfortunately, since this is the FCC we're talking about and not China's TENAA, details on the device are quite slim.

The FCC, after all, is mostly concerned about the wireless communication side of things, and here we're getting quite a few bits for WiFi, Bluetooth, and, of course NFC. WiFi is said to cover 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac but might also support 5 GHz bands in addition to 2.4 GHz. The RFID tests also hint that this will come with an NFC chip, which isn't exactly that surprising for an Android device, much less a reference Nexus tablet.

That said, where other FCC entries would at least have some hint of the device's shape, especially when it comes to label locations, this one doesn't. Aside from the model number, there isn't much to tie this sighting with the rumored Nexus 9 itself, so take its existence with a pinch of salt if you must.

It is quite understandable that the rumored HTC Nexus 9 would spark some interest, and perhaps passionate ones at that. Google's Nexus tablet lineup is long due a refresh and the specs for this next generation is shaping up to be quite formidable. This includes the fastest NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile chip, a 9-inch screen with a high 1920x1200 resolution, and, of course, the latest Android version, L, Lollipop, or Lemon Meringue Pie, if you will.
