Since this summer, there has been speculation about a potential new Nvidia Shield dongle device hitting the market. Now, the mystery device has received Bluetooth certification and we have some more information about what to expect.
The new device is rumored to be a dongle, unlike previous devices from the company that are set-top boxes.
The certification listing shows that the new device will have an Android Pie-based version of Nvidia’s Shield TV interface and will be using “Wi-Fi 5” rather than the new Wi-Fi 6.
The Bluetooth certification also provides a model number that is linked to an FCC listing for an Nvidia device. In that FCC listing, there is a short-term confidentiality agreement for the product. That confidentiality expires on January 7, 2020, so we’ll likely be getting a look at Nvidia’s new device by the beginning of next year. There’s a strong possibility that Nvidia will feature the streaming device at CES 2020.
