If a new FCC filing is any indication, NVIDIA may have a new Shield tablet on the way. Though there's little to go off of, the filing (via Liliputing) shows off a tablet with similar dimensions to NVIDIA's current gaming tablet offering.

NVIDIA Shield tablet refresh may have been outed by the FCC

Measurements come in at 215mm by 120mm, which compares to the current Shield tablet's 221mm by 126mm frame. And aside from the fact that the tablet sports a micro USB port and supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi, along with Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE, spec details are nonexistent.

In any case, the timing makes sense as it seems like the Shield tablet is due for a refresh. The original launched in 2014 before being recalled due to a battery issue. NVIDIA then relaunched the tablet as the NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1 in 2015 with similar specs.

Hopefully we'll get a full look at what NVIDIA has up its sleeve relatively soon. In the meantime, what would you like to see out of a refreshed NVIDIA Shield tablet? Let us know in the comments!
