The upcoming slate is similar to the existing Shield Tablet K1 in terms of design, but most of its specs still have to be confirmed.

Android tablets designed specifically for gamers are not as popular as some might think, but Nvidia has apparently decided not to drop this niche yet. A recently spotted FCC filing reveals the schematic of what looks like a new Shield tablet, also mentioning a few specs - but most important ones remain a mystery for now.

The schematic pictured at FCC shows a device that has 8.6X4.8X0.3 inches and weighs 12.3 ounces while the Nvidia Shield Tablet K1 is just a bit heavier - 12.6 ounces. The layout of this slate includes speaker grilles on the edges and a cutout in the front that serves to accommodate the camera.

While the processor or the amount of memory and storage space are unknown for now, the FCC database entry mentions WiFi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth LE connectivity, as well as a 5100 mAh battery. Although USB Type-C slowly becomes mainstream, it appears that the next-gen Shield tablet will only have a micro USB port for charging and data transfer.

The slate is expected to show up at Computex or one of the gaming shows scheduled to take place this summer, so stay tuned for more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
