A successor to the NVIDIA Shield could soon find its way into the hands of gamers and multimedia entertainment lovers, according to new findings. A filing from the FCC for a very Shield-like device known as the P2570 has been spotted, leading many to assume the second-gen portable console is looming on the horizon. Considering the newly discovered drawings and that first device bears a P2450 model number we’re totally on board with the rumors.
It’s likely that the next model keeps the design language and form factor of the original; the refresh could come in a bigger, higher resolution display and/or faster Tegra K1 chipset. Whatever it is, we’re interested.
The NVIDIA Shield is one of our favorite Android devices of the last year and gets better with each software update. One area where we’d like to see some changes is the price tag. Debut at the $300-$350 again and it could be a slow adoption. We’re in love with the $200 sticker we’ve seen lately and think it’s about what consumers expect in a portable device.
