Nvidia is gearing up to release a 7-inch tablet and, although it has yet to be confirmed or announced, its recent FCC appearance gives us a sneak peek at what's to come.

The P1640 -- or the Tegra Tab, as it's rumored to be named -- is expected to boast some home-field advantage, featuring an as-of-yet unreleased version of Nvidia's Tegra 4 chip. Aside from the speedy SoC, the tablet appears to house some midrange specs: a 1,280x800-pixel resolution IPS display and an almost-stock version of Android Jelly Bean.

The front of the tablet is all black and traditionally simple, with a purported front-facing HD camera and speakers on the left and right edges. The back of the tablet -- which appears to have a grippy texture similar to 2012's Google Nexus 7 -- features an alleged 5-megapixel rear camera on the top-left corner and stylus holder on the bottom-left edge.

The Tegra Tab's stylus integration and capabilities will inevitably be compared with other stylus-toting tablets, like the Samsung Galaxy Note series , but we'll have to wait and see if the Nvidia slate's performance stacks up to its competition.

Check back to CNET for any future updates or announcements on Nvidia's anticipated Tegra Tab.
