Borrowing its name from the Shield handheld game console that was released in 2013, the new tablet will likely use Nvidia’s new and powerful Tegra K1 chipset. Looks-wise, the Shield Tablet follows the design language set by the Nvidia Tegra Note 7 slate from last year, having stereo speakers on each side of the display. It’s said that the display measures 7.9 inches, and may offer a 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution - but we can’t confirm this yet. Android 4.4 KitKat is expected to be on board, while the rest of the tablet’s features remain a mystery for now.
Since the Tegra Note 7 was launched in various markets around the world (under different names), we’re expecting the Shield Tablet to be widely available as well. But we’ll just have to wait for Nvidia to announce the device before knowing anything for sure.
