Nvidia updates the Tegra Note 7 to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, no word on KiKat


Nvidia today announced that the Tegra Note 7 tablet is receiving its first major software upgrade. The device is getting Android 4.3 as of now, in the form of an OTA update that also contains an enhanced stylus experience, a new camera capability and the regular bug fixes.

With the new update, the Note 7’s 5MP camera now supports AOHDR (always-on high-dynamic range) for "more lifelike images across a range of lighting conditions", and also gains video stabilization. As for the stylus-related novelties, these include: overall response improvements, support for left-handed users, and a DirectStylus help option under the settings menu.

While Android 4.3 is nice, it’s certainly not as good as the newer Android 4.4 KitKat (which already runs on some tablets and smartphones). Sadly, Nvdia didn’t even mention KitKat in the blog post announcing the Android 4.3 update. But let’s hope it will do it soon.

The Note 7 is manufactured by various companies around the world, including Evga, Advent, Gigabyte, Zotac and India’s Xolo. Its official price is $199, while its features include a 7-inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels, quad-core 1.8GHz Tegra 4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory (expandable thanks to a MicroSD card slot), and a 4,100 mAh battery.
