New information about Google's upcoming Nexus 9 tablet have leaked online. These latest leaks concern the tablet's release date as well as some of the accessories thought to accompany the device when it launches this fall. Details on the tablet are still scant, but we are pretty sure it's being made by HTC, and it's codenames are rumored to be the HTC Volantis, Flounder, or T1.

These latest leaks come from twitter user @upleaks, who has leaked details on the device previously. According to @upleaks, the Nexus 9 is indeed made by HTC and will have both LTE and WiFi models. The leaker claims that the LTE variant will be available a lot of markets, including Russia, India, Europe, Vietnam, Japan, Austrailia, Koria, Hong Kong, and others.

Some of the Nexus 9's accessories will include a "Magic Cover" case that will be available in multiple covers and also in leather. A keyboard folio is thought to also be part of the devices many accessories that will be available after launch. And while an official release date has not been announced by HTC or Google, @upleaks says that the Nexus 9 will launch on or around October 9th.

The Nexus 9 is also thought to be more of a high-end device than its predecessor, the Nexus 7. If reports are to be believed, the new tablet could sport some very impressive specs, including a 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB storage options, an 8-megapixel camera and front-facing stereo speakers a-la the Nexus 10. The screen is expected to measure 8.9 inches and have a resolution of 2048 x 1440 resolution (that's 281 pixels per inch). The Nexus 9 is reportedly 7.9 mm thin and weighs 418 grams (WiFi version) or 427 grams (LTE version.

The build quality is also thought to be high-end and features a "aluminum zero-gap construction with tapered sides." While we're not sure what that means, it sounds as if Google might be making its next tablet more like Apple's aluminum constructed iPads. Rumors suggest that the Nexus 9 will cost $399 or $499 depending on storage size, with LTE variants costing even more. If this is true, it would put the Nexus 9 on par with the iPad Mini's pricing model.
