First impressions of Google’s HTC Nexus 9
Today we bring you some first impressions of Google’s HTC Nexus 9, plus a video unboxing.
HTC is making a new tablet again, after a long time and is doing it for Google . Let’s see what it offers in a few first impressions, plus a video of its unboxing, join us.
HTC returns to the world of tablets, after a long time withdrawn from this market and brings us the Nexus 9, in a very sober packaging, accompanied by a microUSB cable and charging adapter, without any documentation. Although this may not be the final packaging that reaches the consumer.
The device has a very good and elegant design, with a metal structure and plastic back . HTC has always taken great care in the quality of its products and in this case it has not been an exception.
It is curious the measure for the screen they have chosen, a ratio of 4:3, which lately is not seen very often . The screen is 8.9 inches long, larger than the previous Google model and has very bright and vivid tones.
It has a resolution of 2014×1536 and LCD IPS technology, with a pixel density of 281 ppi , sufficient, but low compared to other devices on the market, and even the Nexus 6 itself, which has 493 ppi. Although its price is also higher.
Camera and speakers
The Nexus 9 has an 8 Mp camera on its back, with LED flash, which in theory could be one of the best cameras on the market mounted on a tablet , but will have to be tested to get all its performance and features.
The speakers feature the usual HTC BoomSound technology and have a very high sound quality, at very high volumes as well. They sound deep, clear and sharp. They also come mounted on the front of the device.
The highlight of the device is that will be the first tablet to feature Android Lollipop on the market . This new version of the Android operating system comes with many changes, both aesthetic, which even makes the simple implementation looks different, and internal, with many adjustments and new features. It will even allow us to remove pre-installed applications.
We can restore settings, applications and data from other Android devices. There have also been changes to the notification bar and the lock screen. We already detailed all the news of the new operating system.
