October 16, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Yesterday’s Google Nexus 9 announcement wasn’t by any means a shock, as we all suspected it was coming. Google’s unveiling of the next Nexus tablet, this time around manufactured by HTC was met with a fair amount of excitement over what are literally the best specs and hardware build of any Nexus tablet. At long last people will have a premium Nexus tablet to hold. Not only is it the most beautiful looking Nexus tablet to date, it should have some killer performance with the Nvidia Tegra K1 64-bit processor that is housed inside. While many are still likely waiting for tomorrow to come around to place their pre-orders, lots of images, close ups at that, of the Google Nexus 9 have surfaced on the web early this morning, along with a hands on video from Schannel, so there’s no need to wait until you get your own in hand to see this thing in great detail.

The images below show just about every angle, with and without case accessories, so make sure you give the images a thorough viewing if you’re curious to see the architecture of this device. In the hands-on video it seems nearly everything one might want to know about the tablet is covered, from the quality of the audio and the speakers to how well the camera takes a picture, and even including the build make-up, screen quality, bezels etc.

Some things of note, are that the BoomSound speakers seem to put out slightly less noticeable audio performance compared to the HTC One M8 according to Schannel. The lightweight, slim body is mentioned a few times in the video, so we’re getting the impression that the Nexus 9 really does give off a very sleek feel, something that most people will probably realize after they hold and use it for the first time. The metal edge and metal buttons are also mentioned a few times here, which is obviously a strong point when it comes to the overall design and helps to bolster the premium quality feel that the Nexus 9 has. Watch the video if you want a nice little walk-through. Who has their money already set aside for this tablet once tomorrow hits?
