We have been hearing about the rumors of Nvidia wanting to build its own tablet for months now. A Chinese website has leaked the renders of a tablet carrying Tegra Tab engraving. The Tegra-4 powered Nvidia Tegra Tab is a 7 inch tablet which is leaked to be manufactured by the Chinese company Shenzhen Homecare Technology.
The renders leaked by MyDrivers show the back of a 7 inch tablet with design inspired by Nvidia’s recently launched gaming console Shield. The back shows the rumored 5 MP camera sensor on the back with headphone jack, MicroUSB and microHDMI ports on the left side. A stylus slot is also visible on the right side. The display resolution is rumored to be 1280×736 for the 7 inch screen.
A report from The Verge also noted that Nvidia has registered for the Tegra Tab trademark at US Patents and Trademark Office (USPTO) in April 2013 and thus the tablet is more or less destined to come. Other rumored specifications include the obvious Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
In a recent leak, the AnTuTu benchmark of the tablet has also been leaked. The device is nicknamed to be “TegraTab7-Premium” and will sport an 1820 MHz processor. The processor is expected to be Tegra 4 System-on-Chip as the device scored a decent 27643 on the benchmark. The score is less than what Shield scored in the same test so it is suggested that this should be taken with a grain of salt.
As per the benchmark, the tablet will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. The tablet is supposed to come out of the disappointment of Nvidia that no other device than its own Shield console preferred to go with Tegra 4. Even major Android OEMs gave it a miss which could have forced Nvidia to come out with a Tegra 4 powered tablet of its own making. We will keep an eye out for more information and will keep you posted.
