We've been seeing a lot of smartphones and tablets released out in the market, especially Android-powered ones. Games are becoming better and better on Android platform, and you can find tons of gaming titles in the Google Play Store today. Many of us like to dabble in gaming on our mobile devices from time to time, but in case you really like to dig in deep, Nvidia has released a device meant to do that, the Nvidia Shield (Portable). Nvidia's gaming console has been around for quite some time now, and its competition has been announced by a relatively unknown company, read on.
JXD, a Hong Kong-based company, has unveiled their very own Android-powered gaming console / tablet, JXD Singularity S192. Its name is somewhat cumbersome, but this gaming tablet looks really nice in terms of the design, and it also packs in a solid set of specs. The device features a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 display along with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM. This tablet is powered by Nvidia's Tegra K1 quad-core SoC which ship with a 192-core Kepler GPU for graphics rendering. The tablet features a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Interesting enough, there's a 10,000mAh battery packed in here, which should be enough to withstand your heavy gaming habits (up to 6 hours of gameplay per charge). The tablet also packs in a set of stereo speakers, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 on the inside. The JXD Singularity S192 measures 274.1 x 143.6 x 53.3mm, and it comes in Black and White color options.
The listing does not mention which version of Android is this tablet / gaming console running. How much does it cost? Well, this device is priced at $299, but it's still not available. The company did not reveal the release date of this tablet, but we'll let you know as soon as they do. The JXD is basically a more affordable alternative to the Nvidia Shield, and it remains to be seen how many people are interested in it. Nvidia didn't exactly plenty of Nvidia Shields, so who knows if there's a demand for such gaming tablets out there, we'll see.
