Nvidia Shield Tablet v5.2 update fixes bugs and installs April security patch

The Nvidia Shield Tablet is a powerful piece of hardware that was launched way back in 2014 with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Nvidia has done an excellent job ever since, of keeping it up to date, with the tablet even receiving Nougat a couple of months back. Now, the company is rolling out the April security patch to the device as version 5.2.

The issue with GPS crashing has now been patched. The update also bundles in various bug fixes and performance improvements over the previous update, version 5.1. The latest update also lets you use more third-party chargers.

The tablet actually holds strong when it comes to specifications when compared to devices of today. It is powered by the Nvidia’s own Tegra K1 chipset with 2GB RAM and an 8-inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display.

It’s hard to see this level of commitment go into one device, but then again Nvidia has a limited portfolio of devices, so we can’t really blame other OEMs here (though, we should). The company doesn’t produce tablets anymore but has put more focus into gaming related products, as this is their area of expertise.
