According to some code found in the latest version of the Nvidia Shield Experience software – as seen for the first time XDA Developers – It is possible that Nvidia works on a new 2-in-1 tablet. Since the 2015, the company has not released a tablet product Nvidia Shield K1.
XDA says findings show that the latest version of Shield Experience – what powers its streaming boxes and its tablets – refer to "a code name" Mysticism. " This Mystic product can quickly switch between three modes: desktop, tablet and a third mode called "dynamic".
Although there is no concrete detail about a new piece of hardware in that small amount of information, it seems strong that Nvidia Skield Experience optimizes to work with a new product that can switch between tablet and desktop modes. It indicates a 2-in-1 hybrid laptop, similar to the Google Pixel Slate or the Microsoft surface.
Since this development happens within Shield Experience, it is safe to assume that this product is based on Android, not Chrome OS or Windows.
This rumor is already a bit shaky, but the alleged device specifications are even more shocking. XDA suggests that the 2-in-1 can have a 13.5-inch screen with a resolution of 3000 x 2000. However, these specifications may be outdated or just placeholders within the code.
All characters point to the Google Pixel Slate Don't go too well with the audiences, offering a ripe opportunity for a company like Nvidia to step in. As the tablet came from Nvidia, there was a high probability that it would have a game focus.
