The NVIDIA Shield handheld gaming console has been a great success for the company since its launch. Although people are yet to be completely open to the idea of a Android based portable gaming console, NVIDIA has made decent inroads in this segment. And now we’re coming across the successor to this gaming console thanks to a listing on the FCC.
The device is revealed to have the model number P2570 although there’s barely any info on the specs at the moment. But considering what the original Shield packed, it’s likely that we’ll see some upgrades here. The Shield was somewhat criticized for featuring a 720p panel in place of a 1080p display, so we can expect that to be changed with the Shield 2.
The Shield 2 should also be packing the NVIDIA Tegra K1 chipset, which boasts of a very capable GPU. The design here looks relatively unchanged, which is good to know as the first gen Shield struck the perfect balance with its size and the variety of hardware buttons.
