Google Nexus 9 to make the 64-bit jump with a Tegra K1?

There have been a ton of rumors surrounding a Google Nexus 9 made by HTC. Sadly, aside from a couple of model numbers here and there, the amount of detail regarding what will power this HTC-made tablet have been quite scarce. We’ve speculated a lot on what we should expect from this design given HTC’s track record, but today we finally get details on some internals.

Reports claim that the Google Nexus 9 will be powered by a 2.5GHz dual-core NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 Denver processor. What makes this processor famous, in addition to its 64-bit ARMv8 architecture, is the fact that it’s fully pin compatible with the 32-bit Tegra K1 for ease of implementation and faster time to market. At a time when we have yet to see 64-bit processors on Android, it seems that the Google Nexus 9 will resemble the time of the Motorola Xoom, being the first tablet with a dual-core processor back in the day.

We still don’t have any dates for this launch, but we do expect this to happen along side of Android L later this year.
