It was only yesterday we got what could have been our first look at the upcoming NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet thanks to a “leaked” press render. Today, it seems the cat has fully escaped from its bag as the tablet — and official controller — have now been made public.
Leaked in a variety of product slides, the images show everything from specs, to performance benchmarks, even the retail box it will likely come inside. While none of this is official just yet, here’s what we can most likely expect from the Android tab when it hits stores later this month.
NVIDIA Shield Tablet specs
- 8-inch 1080p IPS display w/ support for NVIDIA Direct Stylus 2
- NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor (A15 quad-core CPU w/ 192 core Kepler GPU)
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB (WiFi) / 32GB internal storage (LTE)
- 5MP front facing MPIX camera
The tablet — which is scheduled to be announced on July 22nd — is said to go on sale on July 29th in the US and Canada. This will be followed shortly after by a European release on August 14th (additional regions later this fall). The 16GB model (WiFi) will run $300, while the 32GB version with LTE support will be available for $400. The official NVIDIA Shield controller will be sold for a cool $60 (no word if it’ll work with other platforms).
