Next generation HTC-made Nexus tablet official keyboard case details leakd
Rumours are pouring in regarding the next generation Nexus tablet that is believed to be made by HTC. While the tablet codenamed Flounder or Volantis has surfaced in a plethora of leaks, this time it is in the headlines as Google is believed to provide a different accessory called Keyboard Folio case with this long awaited device, claims an Android Police report.
The keyboard folio case will be one of the accessories meant for the 9-inch HTC Nexus tablet and will come with a Magic Cover in TPU or leather options.
Coming back to the keyboard folio case, a leaked image provides some details regarding the device tipping that it could be something like Apple’s smart cover that can be folded into a triangle using magnets to support the tablet when the keyboard is needed. Otherwise, the tablet will be nested into the case with the segmented flap of the case lying over the screen. The incorporation of magnets will play the role of waking or locking the screen automatically.
It is expected that the keyboard will use Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and the embedded NFC chip to pair itself with the tablet. The keyboard is likely to house a 450 mAh battery that will be used to power itself and not the tablet. It is also claimed to feature a microUSB charging port and an LED indicator on its exterior.
On the whole, the report suggests that the keyboard will carry a dimension of 228 x 320 x 5 mm that makes it super thin, as the keys of the keyboard are just 3mm high..
If the report turns out to be true, the keyboard folio case will become a must-have accessory for the forthcoming Nexus tablet.
