New NVIDIA gaming device passes through the FCC


An unidentified NVIDIA gadget (P5270) passed through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) earlier today. Information and sketches included in the filing documentation shows that we could possibly be looking at an updated model of the chipmaker’s Tegra 4-powered Shield handheld gaming device.

Unfortunately, the paperwork doesn’t reveal any information with regards to the internals of the said device, but the computer generated image provided by NVIDIA, pictured above, clearly shows that P5270 will feature a slightly curvier design than its predecessor. It is also set to pack a variety of different connectivity options including LTE (bands 4,7 and 13), Bluetooth Class 1 (Version 4.0, LE+EDR), 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS.

We do not have any additional information sadly, but it’s not hard to presume that the P5270 will ship with the latest Tegra K1 processor, 3GB of RAM, a full HD (1080p) display, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD) and a full set of both hardware and onscreen buttons for both gaming and browsing the internet.
