T-Mobile starts rolling out Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Nexus 9 tablet

It’s been less than a week since Google released Android 7.1.1 Nougat to a limited number of Nexus and Pixel devices. Android 7.1.1 Nougat update brings in several changes and features as well as performance improvements. Accordingly, with Android 7.1.1 update, Google has added updated support for image keyboard, allowing users to easily find their pictures or GIFs. Besides, Android 7.1.1 update also brings in a new set of emoji depicting professional women along with a variety of skin tones for emoji customization.


Android 7.1.1 Nougat officially hits unlocked devices, but a good number of carrier-branded devices are expected to make the cut. However, if you are now using a Nexus 9 locked to T-Mobile in the US, you now can download the new update for your device. T-Mobile today rolls out Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for its Nexus 9 tablets a week following the release of factory images for Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the tablet.

According to T-Mobile, Nexus 9 tablets will get a security patch that includes bug fixes. Previously, the security patch officially hits Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in Australia. The release of Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Nexus 9 comes as a surprise, as Nexus 9 is now two years old and it appears that the tablet will not get any further software updates, but the device will continue to receive maintenance updates.

Nexus 9 tablet was first announced on 15 October 2014 in a partnership between Google and HTC. Nexus 9 was one of the most noticeable tablets two years ago thanks to its affordable costs and high-end specs. Nexus 9 features an 8.9-inch IPS LCD display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution. Under the hood, there is Nvidia Tegra K1 chipset along with 2GB of RAM.

If you are now using a Nexus 9 tablet, make sure that you check out the latest update Android 7.1.1 Nougat by heading to Settings > About Device > Software Update.
