So, on Nvidias twitter about an hour ago, they replied that Android 6.0 Marshmallow was "possiby" coming to the Nvidia Shield Tablet.

I wouldn't say we should get our hopes up, but again this is a "possibly" straight from Nvidia's official Twitter page, so who knows!

Original post (About Android TV Shield)


Nvidia Shield Tablet info (Found in replies to above tweet)

So yeah, @NvidiaShield directly replied that we could "possibly " (note the smiley face haha) get 6.0. But who knows, after the recall and all I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia stopped caring about our Tablet.

I think it's a platform they're looking to grow, and the only thing stopping them from furthering the advancement would be a shield tablet 2. But if they know anything about gamers, we like a company that cares about our old hardware so it would be in their best interest to keep our hardware up to date. The same way that HTC is releasing Marshmallow for the m8. They don't have to do that and it would be understandable if they didn't.

Agreed, the portable was updated recently as well. I think as you said this is a long term play for Nvidia and as much as the battery issue was a really pain they will continue to support the tablet.

I am not sure if we will ever see it officially go back on sale, or if a version 2 will be released first...but either way we will see 6.0 sooner than later.

Androidpolice are stating " It's currently running Android 5.1.1, but NVIDIA already plans to push Marshmallow to it (along with existing SHIELD Tablet units) by the end of the year. " regarding the new version of the shield..

Nice christmas present if they hit that deadline

And for once, a UK price that isn't a straight pound for dollar swap. £149 v $199

Have any details appeared since? It seems to all be attributed down to a single tweet.

Marshmallow was guaranteed for the Shield Tablet 2. I believe before Christmas. The Shield Tablet 2 has identical hardware to our tablet aside from the stylus which means the software is more or less interchangeable so expect the upgrade to come roughly the same time for both tablets.

If it has identical hardware, does that mean 4K@60hz will be possible on our older shield tablets?

as that was something they said they would add to the newer tablet...
