Back in January NVIDIA described a unique plan, the chip maker said that it would design and develop Tegra devices itself which would then be sold through regional companies under their respective brands. Meaning that NVIDIA would not sell those tablets and smartphones under its own name, but it would be involved in all aspects of design and manufacturing. Since then we haven’t heard anything about such a device, but now a new NVIDIA device has been spotted in benchmarks, hinting that the chip maker might currently be testing its very own Android tablet.

The device is called NVIDIA TegraNote Premium, it is apparently powered by a 1.8GHz Tegra 3 processor, has a 1,280×800 touchscreen display and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The display resolution hints that this device may possibly be a tablet. Now we must consider two scenarios. Either the company has deviated from its original plans and will now not only design and make devices, it will also sell them under its own name. Or it is sticking to the original plans and is now internally testing one such device before regional companies slap their branding on it. Nothing can be said for sure, hopefully we’ll get to see more of this TegraNote Premium tablet in the near future. [Image via GSMInsider]
