After rumours of an 8-inch Nexus tablet, Digitimes is now reporting that Google will also introduce a bigger 8.9-inch tablet alongside the 8-inch Nexus. The website also suggests that the tablet will pack display resolution more than 2K, which isn’t surprising given the last large-screen slate from Google – “Nexus 10” came with 2560x1600p resolution, which is more than 2K.
“Digitimes Research has learned that Google is set to release at least two Nexus tablets in 2014 with an 8.9-inch model already under development and set to enter mass production in July,” Digitimes noted in its report.
Given the July production rumours, it is more likely that Google will unveil this tablet after Google I/O 2014 like last year, when it introduced Nexus 7 2013 after Google I/O.
There is no word on the specifications right now but if this tablet is indeed coming, it will be most likely be packing Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, latest version of Android, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and the usual connectivity options.
Digitimes is pegging the price to be around $299, which seems plausible as it will decide the fate of this slate.
