NVIDIA is apparently working on a successor to its Shield portable console with such a device being caught at AnTuTu benchmarks. From what we can tell, the Shield 2 will build on top of the original device, adding a faster Tegra K1 chip clocked at 2.5GHz and 4GB of RAM to the mix. To make for an even better gaming experience, NVIDIA is also bundling its powerful Kepler graphics chip with 192 cores.
The screen resolution is set at 1440 x 810, with those extra 90 pixels in height likely reserved for Android’s on-screen navigation bar. In comparison, the current Shield features a display with resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
The Shield 2 runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, has 16GB of internal storage and a VGA front-facing camera. No word when NVIDIA will officially announce the Shield 2 but we’ll make sure you get that information as soon as we know it.
