The information came courtesy of someone who's part of the software QA team at the company.
We will be providing an update soon for the SHIELD Tablet K1 based on Android N. Android O is not coming to the ST/ST K1.— Manuel Guzman (@ManuelGuzman) October 12, 2017
So you can see they revealed the company is working on a new Android Nougat-based update for the K1, but users should not expect the Oreo update for these devices, which are now three and two years old, respectively.
I have to wonder if this guy actually knows what he's talking about. The shield K1's had Nougat for months, but he makes it sound like it's getting it soon.
Much better than any non Google flagship these days...
they should prepare the successor with stronger chipset like nvidia Tegra X1, display with better color reproduction like s-amoled, bigger battery, bigger memory
