Nexus 9 hardware specs: 64-bit, 4:3 aspect, and more

If nothing else, this year’s launch of Google’s latest Nexus models has taken steps to seriously differentiate these devices from previous Nexus family members. We’ve probably harped so much on the Nexus 6′s price and size by this point that you’re getting sick of hearing about it, but the Nexus 9 makes a few departures of its own. The most notable is arguably its very un-Android-like 4:3 screen aspect ratio, more in common with an Apple tablet than what we’d expect from a Google model. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, and from its 64-bit Tegra K1 SoC to the keyboard case accessory, this tablet marks a number of firsts from Google. Read on to get the full picture of what the Nexus 9 has to offer:
