Typically when a consumer electronic is a hit, it’s eventually rewarded with a follow up. While we probably wouldn’t label NVIDIA’s Shield a runaway success, it managed to make a few waves in world of gaming. So we’re not too surprised to see what looks like a sequel to the chip maker’s Android-powered gaming device passing through the FCC. Listed as the “P2570” (the originally Shield was the P2450) this device bears a strong resemblance to its possible predecessor.

If in fact this is the next iteration of the Shield, the FCC docs don’t share a lot of details, but we’d this revamped expect this controller-based gaming platform to ship with NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 processor and possibly an improved display panel, at least 720p in resolution. All speculation aside, the P2570 is ready for certification, which hopefully means that we’ll hear something from NVIDIA in the not so distant future. Maybe even next week during E3 in Los Angeles.
