Back in September, Google has promised that Android 7.0 will hit the Nexus 6 and LTE Nexus 9 in a few weeks. The owners of the Nexus 6 already received the update at the beginning of this week and now the tablet manufactured by HTC is enjoying the same pampering. The update for the Nexus 9 LTE carries the build number NRD90R and it includes the Android security patch for September.
Users who enrolled in the Android N Beta Program had received the update on their Nexus 9 LTE a month ago and it seems that those who didn’t want to take part in the program are getting the same build number (NRD90R) as the beta testers. The update contains the Android security patch with a date of September 6, although the Nexus 6 Nougat update includes a security patch with a date of October 5. Also, Google hasn’t provided the Factory and OTA images yet.
Android 7.0 Nougat started rolling out on August 22 to Google’s Nexuses and soon, it will come to other flagships released by OEMs. The new operating system has brought visual improvements to notifications and many new features such as split-screen, Quick reply, Doze Mode on the Go, new Settings menu. Users have access to WiFi, Bluetooth and other standard features from the new notifications panel, and see intermittent suggestions in the Suggestions area from the top of the Settings menu.
As for the Nexus 9 LTE, the tablet has been released in October 2014, with an 8.9-inch IPS LCD display that supports a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels, it’s powered by an Nvidia Tegra K1 dual-core 2.3 GHz Denver processor that’s coupled with 2GB of RAM and Kepler DX1 graphics. It doesn’t offer a card slot, and its internal memory supports a capacity of 32GB (the WiFi version has 16GB of storage). On its back it has an 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash and the primary camera is 1.6MP.
