NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV 2019 revealed in Amazon leak

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV 2019 revealed in Amazon leak

Amazon made a mistake in listing the NVIDIA SHIELD reboot for the year 2019 today. Apparently the Android TV device was not yet meant for this world, as it's been once-again de-listed as quickly as it appeared. The TV set was shown available on pre-order for approximately $199.99 USD with free shipping. This device was listed with a new NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor that's "25% faster than the previous generation" with "enhanced HD video in real-time to 4K for clearer, crisper visuals using next-generation AI upscaling."

NVIDIA SHIELD TV will have two successors

After NVIDIA bowed out of the mobile rat race, it didn't completely step out of the Android market. In fact, by removing smartphones and tablets from its attention, it was able to pour all its focus on the NVIDIA SHIELD, an Android TV device that just keeps on giving nearly five years later. That said, the device is showing its age and there have been signs of a new NVIDIA SHIELD but, apparently, it won't just be one but will have two models coming hopefully really soon.

NVIDIA Shield update says you WIN at choosing gadgets

The original NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device was released in the year 2015. In the year 2019, NVIDIA is still releasing significant software updates. Our modern hardware/software world makes most people expect that any non-laptop or desktop PC device they purchase will work fine for a couple years, then will probably slow a significant amount.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV is getting a slight but overdue refresh

When you hear "Android TV", you might think smart TVs first and foremost or at least smart set-top boxes. The platform's real hero device, however, is actually a years old gaming console. Despite its age, the NVIDIA SHIELD continues to make wonders in the market. However, it seems that NVIDIA itself has decided it's time for an update but don't get your hopes too high for a generational jump to an NVIDIA SHIELD 2.

NVIDIA SHIELD has a hidden split screen mode

NVIDIA SHIELD has a hidden split screen mode

NVIDIA is the company that just keeps giving, at least as far as Android gamers and users are concerned. Long past the usual two-year support period, NVIDIA continues to push updates to its SHIELD Android TV box with new games, apps, and features. Granted, this latest one isn't exactly something that NVIDIA has directly given SHIELD owners but if this split screen mode is really a feature rather than a bug, the users will probably consider it as one anyway.

Nintendo Switch emulator released for Android

There's a Nintendo Switch emulator in testing for Android right this minute, and it goes by the name MonoNX. This might be a surprise to some Nintendo Switch users, the lot of which already own the system and can't likely imagine wanting to use an Android device to play the games they've already got on their Switch.

NVIDIA SHIELD keeps the features coming in Experience 7.2 upgrade

Fortunately, that isn’t the case and the latest SHIELD Experience 7.2 upgrade not only fixes or updates existing apps, it even brings new experiences, including Amazon Music.

NVIDIA SHIELD update brings free GeForce NOW beta and more

Say what you want about NVIDIA but its commitment to its SHIELD Android TV devices is perhaps unprecedented in the Android world. Sure, it has already abandoned its SHIELD Portable handheld and its SHIELD Tablets saw their last updates in March, but even those were delivered long after most OEMs would have stopped providing updates. Its real SHIELD baby, however, is the SHIELD Android TV consoles and those are now getting an update that does more than just add new features or apps. It also prolongs their use by letting them “play” PC games on TVs.
