New HTC Nexus tablet hardware rumors emerge, as regulatory evidence builds

Early last month, rumors suggested that this HTC-made Nexus tablet we keep hearing about was going to be a hardware powerhouse, boasting specs like an unheard-of 5GB of RAM and 64-bit NVIDIA K1 SoC. Only problem was, that source was quickly identified as a phony. Since then we’ve talked a little more about HTC’s plans for multiple tablets, but today we’re swinging back around to the idea of this Nexus model, with new reports of high-end specs and a possible citing at a regulatory agency.

While we’re not talking anything so crazy as 5GB of RAM anymore, this new account still suggests that the tablet could end up with a beefy 4GB, and mentions an NVIDIA SoC once again. There’s word of the tablet shipping with Android L, which might explain why we haven’t seen it launch just yet, and a few new details about components arrive, like the presence of an 8MP main camera a 1.6MP front-facer.

Then we have a listing from South Korea’s RRA – one of those national FCC-type organizations – certifying HTC model 0P82100. That’s a number that’s previously been tied to this tablet’s codename Flounder, and suggests that we could be moving closer towards seeing this model launch. As for when that might be, we’ve heard the suggestion that a September announcement could be in the cards, possibly in the weeks following IFA.
