You know what time it is? It’s speculation time. The above benchmark popped up today over at HDblog.it and suggestsÂ the existence of a device called the ‘ASUS Nexus Player‘. The only clues we have as to the nature of the device are the fact it runs a quadcore 1.8GHz processor with 1 GB RAM, likely 8GB of storage and runs Android L. There is one fact, however, that might suggest what this device truly is, and that is the display properties. While the 1080p resolution isn’t anything special, it’s the fact that it is on a 31.9-inch display. It would be easy to assume thatÂ this is a new All-In-One solution from ASUS, the lack of a touchscreen seems to allude to this ASUS Nexus Player being a Smart TV with Android TV capabilities.
We really haven’t heard all that much about Android TV since it was announced at Google I/O earlier this year, however we are now in the Fall window when Google claims Android TV is going to release. This new benchmark could suggest the ASUS Nexus Player might just be one of the first devices to be launched with Android TV, or even the first device given that it carries the ‘Nexus’ label. Of course, we’ll take this information with a grain of salt, but it is definitely compelling nonetheless.
