HTC is set to give the tablet game another shot, with the Taiwanese manufacturer reportedly working on three new slates, including the eagerly awaited Google Nexus 9.
According to serial tipster @evleaks, HTC will take another run at eating into Apple’s dominant share of the tablet market with a family of new products. The HTC One M8 maker has not rivalled the likes of the iPad mini or Samsung Galaxy Tab S for a number of years.
With the manufacturer widely expected to be responsible for designing and piecing together the Google branded Nexus 9 – the HTC T1 – latest reports have suggested that the company will also introduce the HTC T7 and HTC T12 tablets in 2014.
Taking to Twitter, @evleaks stated: “Besides the T1 Volantis/Flounder/Nexus 9, HTC is developing two other tablets: the T7 and T12.”
Although no further specs or details have been offered on the mooted HTC tablets, given their production names, we would expect the T7 and T12 devices to be 7-inch and 12-inch offerings respectively.
Again, an exact timescale of when we can expect these new HTC tablets is currently unclear. However, in order to keep track with the competition, we would anticipate HTC throwing its hat into the tablet ring during late Q3.
As well as a new push into the tablet space, recent leaks have hinted that HTC could also be plotting an assault on the smartwatch space.
