GFX Bench known for its graphics benchmark platform has made a surprising disclosure this week. According to an interesting listing on its website an Asus Nexus Player could possibly come by the end of this year as the first Android TV that a lot of peeps are waiting for.

The site gives away a lot of information on this Asus Nexus Player, which will come in two variants: one with a 24-inch display, the other with a 32-inch display, both sporting Full HD resolution, however these screens don’t have touch screen technology. Going further with the specs it appears that these Asus Nexus Players will be powered by an Intel Genuine 4000 SoC (x86 quad-core CPU clocked at 1.8GHz), PowerVR Rogue G6430, 1GB of RAM, 6GB built-in storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, compatible OpenGL ES 3.1 and runs on Android L build.

Google might lunch the new Nexus TV’s (if they are for real) in the same press event that will mark the launch of Android 5.0 LMP (Lemon Meringue Pie) and possibly other Nexus devices (Nexus X aka Nexus 6 or Nexus 5 2014, Nexus 9 tablet).
