NVIDIA seven-inch Android tablet pictured in regulatory filing

NVIDIA’s SoCs have powered many a tablet over the years, but the company itself has yet to release such a device under its own name; certainly, with products like Shield, it’s clear that NVIDIA is reconsidering the greater role it wants to play in the hardware market. This summer, rumors have suggested that NVIDIA might be working on a pair of Android tablets. While one may run a next-gen Tegra 5 chip and still be quite a way’s off, we’ve already started seeing leaks of a seven-inch NVIDIA tablet. Today we get some new imagery to look over,

While much lower resolution than the leaked pics we already got to see, this find is interesting due to its provenance: these are official images included as part of the tablet’s certification paperwork for Taiwan’s NCC – the nation’s equivalent of the FCC. From what we can make out, the hardware appears consistent with that earlier leak, including a prominent groove in which to store a stylus.

There’s been growing expectation that we may get to see this tablet at the IFA this year, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for it. Surely, if it’s getting regulatory approval, it must be nearly ready to launch, so an IFA appearance could make a lot of sense.
