We were bound to see a follow-up to the Nvidia Shield Android console and here it is, in the very first solid leak. This one involves famous benchmark AnTuTu, showing us the first details related to the device.


We’re dealing with a product that integrates a Tegra K1 SoC and an impressive 4 GB of RAM. That sounds like a future-proof setup, a device meant to run Android games for at least the following 3 years, if you ask me. The original Nvidia Shield hit the market quite a while ago, so a follow up was needed. This new model was required because the first seemed greeted with a moderate success, which is a good thing in a world where consoles are being replaced by high end phones.

Rumors about a Shield 2 appeared back in Q4 2013, but without a proof. Today we get to see some specs and the product appeared with Android 4.4.2, a strange 1440 x 810 pixel resolution and a 0.3 MP camera. Of course, those specs are probably not 100% right, since the resolution may be a bit bigger. Do you own an Nvidia Shield? Would you buy one? How about the new one?
