The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is due an update soon. The most likely candidate to fit this bill has gone through registration with the FCC, and has also just secured Bluetooth SIG approval. Therefore, there may still be time for it to be released this year

A product with a model name (P3430) seen in a recent Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filing has just appeared on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's (SIG) approved list. It had been submitted by NVIDIA in both cases, and is described as part of the SHIELD series. Therefore, this new device may be the rumored new TV box with the refreshed Tegra X1 processor also seen in the new Nintendo Switch.

The P3430's FCC certification led to speculation that this product will be more like a Chromecast than a discrete box, thanks to a footprint outline contained in this filing. However, the Bluetooth SIG certificate describes it as an "NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Game Console". Of course, this is no guarantee of its actual form factor, but it is a potentially strong indicator of the varied use-cases that its maker may intend for it.

This new leak cannot tell us much more about the upcoming new SHIELD TV device, besides that it is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0. However, it is projected to have features such as 4K (perhaps with added HDR); Wi-Fi 6; USB type C inputs and smart assistant support. These various up-to-date niceties could help it compete with the all-in-one big-screened Android TVs available today.
