Nvidia's updated streaming box is called the Shield TV Pro

The Shield TV Pro had a ship date of October 28, so it stands to reason we'll see both of these devices (and possibly more) officially announced very soon.

Images of the new Shield TV has already been taken down from the online retailer's site, but sadly, not before 9to5Google managed to save the relevant images.

The Shield TV 2019 is expected to retails around US$150 (~RM627). We understand embargo. That publish button must not be hit.

Along with this new Shield TV dongle, a new Shield TV Pro was also leaked today.

Unlike the Nvidia Shield TV Pro, the new Nvidia Shield streaming stick (yeah, it's simply dubbed Nvidia Shield) is meant for entry-level users, but offers up to 4K streaming with Dolby Vision, HDR 10 and Dolby Atmos support. It must be mentioned that there is no USB port of any kind present here, but on the positive side this device has the microSD slot that its Pro brother lacks. A lot of things will seem familiar to Shield enthusiasts, since it has the same design as the current model as well as the same 16GB storage and 3GB of RAM.

The listing - which first appeared on the Canadian version of Newegg (since removed), as spotted by 9to5Google - shows a device with a similar remote as the Nvidia Shield TV Pro. Other key tech specs, and a new remote design, are shared with the Pro model, bullet pointed below. There is also a special Netflix button and in addition to the usual media control buttons. Further, this Shield TV comes with a remote with backlit buttons.

The refreshed streaming box now supports Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound - a complete package to provide the best-in-class Android experience.
