Google Nexus 9 now being updated to Android 5.1

Just recently, Google updated the HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet to Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop). Soon after, the search giant announced that it is now rolling out the Android 5.1 (Lollipop) update for the tablet.


Google announced on Twitter:


It isn’t clear whether the update is for the Wi-Fi only or the LTE version, but it’s likely that the update is for both versions of the Nexus 9.

A few days back, the Nexus 9 was still stuck with Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop), which was strange since older tablet such as the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10 were already running Android 5.1. Recently, the Nexus 9 was updated to Android 5.0.2, still an outdated version of Android. Apparently, the Android 5.0.2 update was to prepare the tablet for Android 5.1.

To recap, the Nexus 9 sports an 8.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels (pixel density of 288 ppi), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB to 32 GB of internal storage, NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 “Denver” 64-bit dual-core processor with each core clocked at 2.3 GHz, a Kepler DX1 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and a 6,700 mAh battery. The tablet is available in a Wi-Fi only version and a  Wi-Fi + 4G LTE variant.
