With rumors of NVIDIA working on a second Shield console, Shield tablet and even a Steam Machine competitor it seems one of those might be coming soon. A leaked image of what is said to be the Shield tablet has surface on the internet this week.
The leak comes from twitter user evleaks, who has usually been spot on with product leaks. The leaked image shows that the tablet looks much like the NVIDIA Tegra Note that was launched in the second half of 2013. From the photo it looks like that tablet will have an aluminum chassis with front-facing speakers, front-facing camera, and a newer version of the Tegra Zone App. As you can see there is a tab for “My PC Games” which suggests that you will be able to stream your PC games to the device, much like the original Shield device.
There is no information on what hardware this tablet might be running, but rumors suggest a 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 display, Tegra K1 GPU, 2GB of memory, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 4.4 KitKat. It is likely that NVIDIA will provide accessories to compliment this device like a wireless controller or even a docking controller.
