Here we’re tentatively tying two rumour threads into one knot. I say “tentatively” because I’m not entirely convinced with the result, but we’ll give the hybrid story an airing regardless and let you make your own minds up.
Starting with Double Exposure, no one’s quite sure what to expect, with suggestions ranging from a simple software update, to a camera-related smartphone add-on, to a spanking new phone (HTC Eye, anyone?).
Meanwhile, there’s the Google Nexus 9, which we’re accepting is built by HTC and probably powered by a Tegra K1 processor – NVIDIA having confirmed as much last week.
This latest story, supposedly emanating from a factory in Brazil, says that the Google Nexus 9 will arrive at Double Exposure alongside “a new ‘tube-shaped’ waterproof camera”, with a 16MP sensor and the ability to be controlled with an accompanying smartphone app.
The problem we have here is that HTC's Nexus 9 will almost certainly debut at Google’s Android L event, whenever that might be (probably October). Why the heck would it show up first at an HTC launch that’s focused on camera stuff - including an emphatically niche product like a waterproof camera add-on?
Nah, we’ll be dousing our dinner in salt tonight, but we’re more than happy to be proved wrong; we’re quite eager to meet the Google Nexus 9 when rumoured specs include a 64-bit processor, 3GB of RAM, high-resolution display, and the latest version of Android.
