A new Nvidia Shield TV box may arrive soon

The first version of the Nvidia Shield box running Android TV was unveiled in March 2015. It appears that a second generation box may arrive soon as it has passed through the FCC.

Last week, a new Nvidia game controller passed through the FCC, USA’s radio and TV regulation agency. Shortly after, a new Nvidia TV remote appeared and now a new Nvidia Shield box has surfaced. The documents were first noticed by AFTVnews.

Based on this, it appears that the launch of a new Nvidia Shield TV box could happen soon.

The documents refer to the box as "SHIELD Android TV Game Console" suggesting that Nvidia will stick to its current story, positioning Shield as a game console first, then a media streaming box.

Not much else can be deciphered in the documents but we assume that the new box will come with upgraded hardware and support for both 4K and HDR (high dynamic range). The documents confirm that it is equipped with "ac" WiFi plus MIMO (multiple-in, multiple-out). It carries model number P2897.

The current Nvidia Shield TV box is available for $200 but over recent weeks retailers in the US and Europe have started listing it as “out of stock”. There is no firm indication as to when Nvidia is planning to officially announce it.
