As part of its lawsuit filed against Samsung and Qualcomm, NVIDIA was forced to reveal that the oft-rumored HTC's Nexus 9, which relies on the company's Tegra K1 processor, may be launched soon in the third quarter of the year.
"The HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014, is also expected to use the Tegra K1," NVIDIA revealed in its filing.
Neither NVIDIA nor HTC had revealed specifics surrounding the launch date for the much anticipated tablet in Google's lineup. The slate, which was seen leaked a number of times recently, is believed to be launching out of the box with Android L, so the launch timing may be dependent upon Google.
This would fall in line with what we've been hearing, mainly that the Nexus 9 is expected to debut sometime in October.
Curiously, HTC has scheduled a Double Exposure event in October, though it's unclear if that will be the venue for unveiling the Nexus 9 as typically Google takes lead on product announcements in the Nexus family.
