The next NVIDIA Shield could be a gaming tablet


Last month a NVIDIA-made gadget passed through the FCC. Originally believed to be a follow up to the Android-powered Shield, this may not be the case. A recent filing by the Global Certification Forum has outed a device referred to as the “Shield Tablet” with NVIDIA listed as its manufacturer. While the GCF listing doesn’t reveal much else, rumor has it that the tablet will feature a 7.9 -inch 2,048 x 1,536 display, a Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

As for that device that recently hit the FCC, perhaps it’s a gamepad for this unannounced tablet, or maybe even a completely different product altogether. The current Shield model features a 5-inch display, a Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM all housed in a game controller structure. So if these alleged specs pan out, we’re looking at a sizable upgrade.
