Now it looks like a new NVIDIA Shield tablet is on the way. Maybe this time NVIDIA will put a new chip in the tablet.
An unannounced NVIDIA tablet showed up at the FCC website this week.
While the FCC documents are light on specs, here’s what we do know:
- It supports 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz 802.11ac WiFi.
- The tablet has a micro USB port.
- There’s Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy support.
- The tablet measures 8.6″ x 4.8″ x 0.3″ and weighs 12.3 ounces.
The tablet’s model number if P2290W.
Last year’s Shield K1 Tablet had an 8 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It was also a tiny bit bulkier, measuring 8.7″ x 5″ x 0.4″ and weighing 12.6 ounces.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the new model had a Tegra X1 chip and more memory… but those are just guesses.
