Android TV Rumors

The 2019 Nvidia Shield TV and Nvidia Shield TV Pro Android streaming devices have leaked in listings on Newegg and Amazon, according to reports from 9to5Google on Thursday. While both online listings have since been taken down, Android TV Rumors posted screenshots on Twitter.

The first Nvidia Shield TV was launched in 2015, with an updated version coming in 2017. It comes with most apps, as well as 4K HDR. It has voice search and Google Assistant.

According to 9to5Google, most of the improvements to the 2019 version have been made to the remote control. It reportedly has a larger, triangular form factor, more buttons, a dedicated Google Assistant microphone button and a new Netflix button. There's also volume control, power and play/pause buttons, the report said.

The standard Nvidia Shield TV then comes as a tube spanning 6.5 inches, 9to5Google said, and has HDMI and a microSD slots. According to the report, Nvidia's description of the device says it's "compact, stealth, and designed to disappear behind your entertainment center."

The lower-end version also comes with an Nvidia Tegra X1+ processor, 4K HDR, 8GB of storage, Dolby Vision and Atmos support, the report said, adding it will cost $150.

Nvidia didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
