Nvidia has not yet announced its next gaming tablet, but this Android device has reciewed approval from several regulatory bodies so some of its details have come to light early.
Back in March, the Bluetooth SIG signed off on the Nvidia P2523, which was described as a “portable gaming console”. That same month, the Wi-Fi Alliance certified the P2523 as a “Gaming Device – Portable” and indicated that it will run Android 5.x Lollipop.
Yesterday, the FCC became the latest agency to give its approval to this device. Documents filed by Nvidia to get this approval say that the tablet will be 8.6 x 4.8 x 0.3 inches, indicating that it will be a mid-size model.
Other details revealed so far include WiFi a/b/g/n/ac and both 2.4 and 5GHz. Bluetooth 4.1 will also be supported.
There’s speculation that this gaming tablet will be built around the Tegra X1, a processor designed with gaming in mind. It sports 256 GPU cores, and quad-core 64-bit CPUs, and is capable of powered a a 4K or 2K display at 60 Hz, or a 1080p at 120 Hz.
No other details about the P2523 are available at this time, but it’s expected to be available before the holiday shopping season.
