Did any of you notice that the latest OTA update to MOB30X is identifying our tablets as the older Nexus (2012) with only 720p resolution!?

Check on your Google activation devices as well as go within YouTube and try to play a 1080p or 1080p60 video. The highest option it will give you is 720p. It didn't do this on previous updates.

I'm seriously considering downgrading.

First of all, wow, black is nearly impossible to read with xda's dark theme.

But no, everything in our build.prop/getprop is still identifying our tablet correctly on MOB30X, and I still have 1080p in YouTube. Here's one that worked fine for me: https://youtu.be/c7OO3qCfH9Y

It started out 720p (I didn't have Auto on) but I tapped the ... overflow menu and switched it to 1080p no problem.

Okay, the YouTube thing might be the same issue I was facing with my OnePlus 3. I had to log out of YouTube, "Force Stop" the app, delete all updates and "Cache" and reinstall the YouTube app before the other 1080p options started showing up.

I noticed another post saying the same thing and when I saw Google notified me of signing into my account, it specified that the device was an ASUS Nexus 7 (2012) which it never said before.

I posted to another earlier thread about the same kind of problem, someone who's most recent update id'd his 2013 as the 2012. Like I said there, I don't have that issue on my 2013 and no wrong info is seen by my system monitor,, but I noticed the same thing you did. My Google Dashboard reports me as being online with my Nexus 7 2012, which I don't own. I just checked and it's reporting my accurately right now tho.
Odd yah?

Another oddity is it'll only list 720p for 1080p or 4K 60fps videos instead offering a standard 30fps 1080p encode which it does for non 60fps 4K videos.
Adreno 320 probably has enough juice for 1440p 30fps.
