NVIDIA may launch new, more powerful SHIELD Android TV box soon
Apparently, NVIDIA have been trying to refresh its Android TV box lineup for a couple of years now, but most of the company's projects failed. Fortunately, one of the many projects that NVIDIA has been working on all these years has been given the green light, according to XDA Developers.
The codename of an upgraded NVIDIA SHIELD unit has been recently spotted in the Google Play Developer Console Device Catalog, which confirms we might get a new Android TV box pretty soon.
The main differences between the 2017 SHIELD TV and the upcoming model are the operating system and chipset. The new Android TV box will ship with Android 9.0 Pie on board, as opposed to the current generation that runs Android 8.0 Oreo.
Still, we can safely assume that the next SHIELD TV will be more powerful and power efficient if NVIDIA decides to bring a new one to the market, it's the logical choice when launching a new product.
