Nvidia’s Shield Tablet has made another appearance online where it was recently spotted getting certified at the Global Certification Forum (GCF) website. The device was previously mentioned on the TegraZone page as well, and it’s being developed under the Mocha codename.
Ubergizmo points out that the certification website has listed the Nvidia Shield Tablet under different models with cellular support on 3G and 4G networks. Apart from this, there’s nothing new to share about the device. However, there are reports doing the rounds stating the possibility of the chip maker offering its GameStream technology with the slate which would allow users to play PC titles remotely.
The first time we heard about Nvidia’s upcoming Shield device was when the slate was spotted on GFX Bench under the Mocha name. A lot about the tablet has been leaked thanks to the benchmark listing and we know that the company plans to implement its latest Tegra K1 chipset which is also being used by Google’s Porject Tango and Xiaomi’s MiPad amongst others.
The SOC comes with quad Cortex A15 cores clocked at 2.1GHz and a 192 core Kepler GPU. Unlike the Tegra Note, the slate in question will be a high-end one offering a high resolution QXGA 2048 x 1536p display. The screen size is estimated to be around 7.9 inches.
Here are the leaked specs:
– 2.1GHz quad core Tegra K1 SOC
– 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536p display
– 2GB RAM, 16GB storage
– 7MP rear camera, 4.8MP front snapper
– Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, 4G LTE
The Nvidia Shield Tablet has also made it through the FCC which means that it could go official soon. The company is even working on a successor to its first Android handheld console.
