Has Google just leaked the Nexus 9?

A mysterious tablet has popped up in an official Google document, suggested the company has accidentally given an early glimpse at the upcoming Nexus 9.

A device which has been shrouded in much rumour and speculation in recent weeks, the Nexus 9 is expected to land later this year, with the newly teased image suggesting it will come running the new Android L software as standard.

Spotted in a document highlighting the features of the newly confirmed Android OS, the mooted Nexus 9 is shown alongside a Nexus 5 and Chromebook device.

Given that Google could have used either of the existing Nexus 10 or Nexus 7 models in the demo image, the inclusion of a previously unseen product suggests that the company’s next tablet offering might just have made a premature appearance and could be on its way sooner rather than later.

With the rumoured Nexus 9 widely believed to being manufactured by HTC, the leaked image has shown a device featuring a sizeable forward facing camera – a feature associated with HTC’s leading smartphones.

Although no specs have accompanied the latest leak, recent rumours have suggested the Nexus 9 will benefit from an 8.9-inch display with a 2048 x 1440 p resolution.

Further highlights of the claimed Nexus 9 specs sheet will reportedly see a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor line up alongside 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a pair of camera – 8-megapixel on the rear, 3-megapixel up front.

With Android L set to officially launch later this year, it is not out of the question that the Nexus 9 could act as the launch device for the new OS.
