Taiwan FCC shows HTC and Nexus 9 in one database entry

ncc_taiwan_htc_nexus_9_entry

Although there have been plenty of rumors and leaks surrounding the upcoming Google Nexus 9 device, including pretty heavy speculation that HTC is the manufacturer, nothing official has been announced. Even in an FCC filing for the device in the U.S., the alleged device only shows up as a tablet produced by HTC. A new entry from the Taiwan version of the FCC lists the model name for the HTC device as “Nexus 9″ which is probably the closest to confirmation that HTC is producing the device that we will get before any official announcements are made.

The new Nexus 9 announcement could come this week during an HTC press event unless Google wants to make the announcement themselves later this month.

HTC-One_Eye1

HTC is hosting a little event this Wednesday in New York City, and we expect to see either the HTC Desire Eye or the One (M8 Eye) along with the RECamera. My money is on the Desire Eye.

Thanks to Zauba, which tracks shipment records, we have an idea of much both devices will cost. The Desire Eye (pictured above) is valued at 21,490 INR, which translates to about $350. The One (M8 Eye) comes in at 27,035 INR or about $440.

Nexus_9_Back_Leak_01

I am sure you woke up this fine Monday morning saying to yourself, “Wouldn’t it be nice to see the back of the Nexus 9?” Well you wish has come true, and guess what? It says “Nexus” on the back!! :-) Now there is a little bit of a letdown here. You are probably aware that HTC is making the device, which could mean a lot of metal. If that was your wish, I am sad to report that one won’t come true.

Images and specs of the HTC Desire Eye leak

HTC_Desire_Eye_Leak_01AWe saw leaked images of the HTC One (M8 Eye) earlier in the week, and now we have the HTC Desire Eye. The question is which one will we see next Wednesday in New York City?

While the HTC One (M8 Eye) appears to be more of a replica of the HTC One (M8), the Desire Eye appears to be the cheaper version of the two Eye phones. It sports plastic, but the specs appear to be about the same. You will also notice that the rear camera lens isn’t centered like on the One (M8 Eye) or even the One (M8). However the front-facer is centered, but the One (M8 Eye) isn’t.

HTC REcamera goes through the FCC, confirming Bluetooth LE and WiFi

HTC recamera patentWe know that HTC is planning on launching some type of GoPro camera competitor in the near future, and it looks like it’ll be called the REcamera. The device will be some kind of smartphone accessory and will likely be fairly rugged and waterproof for capture action shots and the like.

Thanks to an FCC filing, we can confirm that it’ll definitely be able to connect to a smartphone (although that doesn’t rule out the possibility that it can be used on its own). The filing shows that the device features WiFi radios as well as Bluetooth LE, both of which are extremely common ways to connect peripherals to smartphones. The filing didn’t reveal anything about the rest of the hardware, so we’re still not sure what kind of megapixel count or anything HTC will go with.
