On Saturday Amazon accidentally revealed a pro model of the upcoming Nvidia Shield Android TV set-top box by listing the new products page, but they were just as quick to remove it again. But the internet doesn’t forget and users are fast to grab information like this. Once it’s out there, it’s out there.
So it looks like Nvidia is planning to release a Pro model of their Shield Android TV box next to the normal version. The difference between the two models will be limited to a single item and that is the storage capacity. Where the Nvidia Shield will come with just 16GB flash storage and an SD-card slot for those who need more, the Nvidia Shield Pro on the other hand looks to come with 500GB internal storage instead.
The pricing wasn’t listed for either model and neither was the release date, but it should be soon. Earlier it has said to be scheduled for a May or June sale date, so it could be any day now. With Amazon, and probably other resellers too, starting to list the products with both product and packaging photos could also point towards an imminent release.
Customers of the new Shield Android TV set-top box will get both an HDMI and USB cable, shield controller and either the 16GB standard or 500GB Pro Shield Android TV packed with the powerful Tegra X1 processor, 3GB RAM, and 4K capabilities.
