The much rumoured HTC Nexus tablet – codenamed ‘Volantis’ or ‘Flounder’ – is very much anticipated after Google let the 1-year release window for their Nexus 7 line slide without any new announcements. The tablet has apparently quietly slipped through the WiFi Alliance – the certification body for WiFi capable devices – earlier this month.


It’s an AOSP, Android L device, which is a great sign that this is indeed a Nexus device, with Google traditionally releasing a reference device for each new software platform. The listing, as you can see, also uses the fishy ‘Flounder’ code-name which Google traditionally has given to their Nexus devices.

There’s three model numbers listed – 0P8210000, 0P8220000 and 0P8230000 – with the 0P8210000 model number being sighted in the recent certification of what was believed to be the Volantis/Flounder by the Radio Research Agency (RRA) in Korea. It was also the model # listed for the Volantis/Flounder given by @evleaks

With three model #s listed, it’s most likely that 16/32GB Wifi and 32GB WiFi/LTE models will be released as has previously been the case, with the Nexus 7 (2013). We certainly can’t wait to check it out when it is released.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Yeah 16/32gb is so outdated. Go the 32/64gb options… should be standard nowdays, despite Google’s “connected” theme.


If this is going to be a premiumly priced device, that will have to be 32/64GB and 64GB WiFi/LTE.

And if it’s an ‘L’ device, that means launch with the Nexus 6, most likely, in Oct/Nov.

A 64GB Nexus Tablet with LTE would be pretty sweet, especially if it has 2300MHz and a decent size screen (9″<)
