Back in 2013, NVIDIA introduced its first ever 7-inch tablet in select global markets. Although the tablet wasn't the fastest device, it certainly managed to draw crowds for its gaming performance.
Now, NVIDIA is expected to produce its second-generation Android tablet. Dubbed the Shield tablet, the 7.9-inch slate will be centered on high-end gaming. Today, Twitter sensation @evleaks has posted what may be the first leaked picture showing consumers what the NVIDIA Shield tablet will look like.
An alleged press shot of the NVIDIA Shield tablet has surfaced after the tablet made several appearances in the past weeks. The press shot of the Shield tablet confirms the slate's exterior. The tablet device has dual-frontal speakers and a front-facing camera. One can also clearly see NVIDIA's Tegra Zone app optimized for NVIDIA's mobile processor.
The rest of the NVIDIA's shield tablet specs sheet remains a mystery, at least, for the time being. Believe it or not, the forthcoming tablet will come with a more powerful Tegra K1 chipset. The Shield tablet seems to have a 7.9-inch display having a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution.
The high-end tablet is also expected to run on Android 4.4 Kitkat out of-the-box. Other specs are as follows: 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, 7MP rear-facing camera, 4.8MP front-facing camera, amongst more features. Being a premium tablet, it supports 4G LTE connectivity.
There's no solid information on retail pricing or the actual ship date, but it would not be surprised if we get to see the tablet at the earliest. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
