Nvidia Shield TV is definitely the best Android TV-based console, and its powerful Tegra X1 chipset double up as a gaming console. It can also playback 4K HDR content on compatible TVs. Now, the company is looking to extend its leadership in the market by releasing a successor to the Shield TV.
Nvidia has passed a new Android TV console through FCC yesterday, and the company is calling it the ‘SHIELD Android TV Game Console’. The console comes with a revamped Shield Remote with a battery compartment, Wi-Fi ac/a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, and a 19V/2.1A power source.
Nothing is known about the hardware configuration of the new Nvidia Shield TV, but it would be amazing if the GPU leader comes up with a Pascal-based GPU and a new SoC with the new console. The company recently worked with Plex to make it compatible with Plex Media Server, allowing it to live process 4K videos and stream them to other devices.
