Nvidia Shield tablet getting Lollipop update a day earlier than expected

Nvidia’s original plan regarding the Android 5.0 Lollipop rollout for the Shield tablet was for tomorrow, but reports are coming in that the OTA seeding has commenced today. That’s a day earlier than initially promised but we doubt owners of the slate will be unhappy about it.

The OTA update weighs 705MB and adds enhanced console mode with 4K output, USB Y-cable support and DirectStylus launcher. The Nvidia-made drawing app Dabbler is now redesigned to fit the new Lollipop look and it will also get full support for layers and sharing sessions over Twitch.

Nvidia also states charger compatibility and performance are improved as well as the GPS functionality should be better. Lastly, Valve’s Half-Life 2: Episode One has been optimized for the mobile Tegra K1 chip and can be found on the TegraZone store.
