From the looks of it, if you are a fan of the Nvidia Shield, you may not have to wait long for the new streaming players.
Here is what we already know about the new Nvidia Shields from the Best Buy listings:
The $149.99 version comes with 8 GB of storage, Android TV, a micro SD card slot, and an Nvidia Tegra X1+ processor. Sadly though, this does not seem to be a stick like a Roku or Fire TV stick as it has a standard HDMI port on the device, and it is over 6″ long.
The $199.99 version comes with 3GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage along with a new Tegra X1 processor, two USB 3.0 ports, and 4K Dolby Vision HDR along with Dolby Atmos sound. The new remote comes with a motion-activated backlit button, lost-remote locator, IR for TV control, and Nvidia is switching from a built-in rechargeable, and the watch-like batteries to now use 2 AAA batteries to power the remote. You will also find a newly added Netflix quick launch button on the remote.
Here is what the new $149.99 Nvidia Shield looks like:
For now, there seems very little we don’t already know about the new Nvidia Shields. Now we just need to wait for them to be officially for sale and in stores.
