Back in May, a device made by NVIDIA that looked like a game controller hit the FCC and sparked rumors of a follow up to the company’s Shield system. Shortly after this filing surfaced, word broke that the chip maker was instead developing a gaming tablet utilizing its new Tegra K1 processor. Today, the often reliable @evleaks has shared what appears to be a press or concept render of NVIDIA’s unannounced slate, with a caption referring to it as the “NVIDIA Shield Tablet.”

In terms of design, the device is somewhat reminiscent of a large HTC One and appears to be made out of metal. In addition to an image and a name, the device’s posting referenced 2014, so it’s possible that we might see this new gadget sometime this year.

As a refresher, the Shield tablet’s rumored specs are a 7.9 -inch 2,048 x 1,536 display, a Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
