Back in August some new details and trademark filings revealed that NVIDIA was planning to enter the Android tablet market. With official press images and trademark details revealing a new Tegra 4 quad-core powered “Tegra Tab” coming in at 7-inches and rocking some impressive specs. Well, today we’ve got further confirmation as the device has just cleared the NCC, which is similar to our FCC, only for Taiwan.
The NVIDIA Tegra Tab will be their second own-branded device, following the somewhat popular (but awesome) NVIDIA SHIELD game-console. Today’s NCC filing shows a model number listed as P1640, and instead of a mock-up press photo there’s a real image of the actual tablet hardware. So that’s a plus.
They are certainly blurry photos, but at least the device is real and out in the wild. According to the NCC filing the specs are all just as previously rumored. Coming in with a 7-inch 1280 x768 HD display, and NVIDIA’s powerful 1.8 GHz quad-core Tegra 4 processor and 2GB of RAM under the hood.
The filing further details a 5 megapixel rear camera, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and plenty of ports to make it quite the gaming tablet. With micro-SD for expanded storage (to fit huge games like Asphalt 8) micro-USB, and even micro-HDMI to stream games to the bigscreen. Another important aspect is the inclusion of a SIM slot, which means this 7-inch gaming tablet could have 4G LTE when it hits the market later this year.
The report also details stylus support, which we’ve seen in the past being built into the Tegra 4 software wise, so the screen probably won’t be any Note-like Wacom display tech. Hopefully we learn more about this device soon, and with it clearing some NCC tests surely more details are coming sooner than later.
