Motorola may have put most of its efforts into its new Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360 in recent months, but the company hasn’t forgotten about its Droid partnership with Verizon.

HTC will launch the much-anticipated Nexus 9 on October 16, according to an “anonymous tipster” familiar with the company’s plans. The device is expected to boast an 8.9-inch Quad HD display and NVIDIA’s latest Tegra K1 processor, and it could be available to purchase by the end of next month.
