Following our previous posts about the Nexus 6 and the Nexus Player, Google have announced the latest refresh to its tablet line, the Nexus 9.

The 8.9-inch Google Nexus 9 s the first Nexus 64-bit processor courtesy of Nvidia and its Tegra K1 system on a chip.

The tablet-focused processor runs at 2.3GHz and is coupled with a Kepler DX1 graphics chip and 2GB of RAM.

A 2048 x 1536 resolution gives it a dense 287ppi count and a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Memory will be standard with 16GB and 32GB with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2MP front camera.

The larger sized tablet has allowed Google to fit in a much larger batter at 6700 mAh compared to last year’s 3,950 mAh. Oddly wireless charging is not included.

As with the Nexus 6, the new tablet will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

No word on UK pricing but US pricing starts at $399 for the base 16GB WiFi model; $479 for the 32GB WiFi; and $599 for a 32GB LTE

Pre-orders begin October 17 with a November 3 launch
