This update was expected, but it’s great to have the Nvidia Shield Tablet Android 7.0 update officially confirmed. As of yet, it is only the update itself that is confirmed, so what week the update will roll out, will be announced later.
So that brings the official number of Android 7.0 tablets up to 4 in total, with the 3 others being the out of production HTC 9, the was out of production but is occasionally in production anyway Google Pixel C, and the soon to be Android 7.0 tablet Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet that was believed to get the update in late December, so the update should be here any week now.
These are the officially announced Android 7.0 tablets, but the rumor that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will get the “Android N update” should also be mentioned, even though this isn’t 100% official yet. But Samsung’s Android 7.0 update have been reported to be in development by Samsung since November.
