Nvidia’s highly affordable Tegra Note 7 tablet which has gone on sale globally through multiple partners such as EVGA, Advent, Gigabyte, Zotac and Xolo, has finally been treated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Along with a bump in the OS version, the tablet has also been treated to various enhancements which improve imaging, digitizer input and a lot more, as well as security and bug fixes.

One of the main improvements introduced is that the stylus input has been augmented where support for left-handed users has been incorporated apart from better touch response and a DirectStylus help option within the settings menu. Also, every time the stylus is removed or inserted, an alert will be display in the notification bar. User will also be able to use the full-screen capture to take a screen grab of the notification bar.

For the camera, always-on high-dynamic range or AOHDR capability has been implemented where users can expect better and brighter images in different lighting conditions. Then there’s video stabilization which should reduce shakes while recording footage. Nvidia has also improved the overall camera performance. Lastly, apps can now be transferred from the internal storage to a microSD card.

Nvidia notes that the latest Android 4.3 firmware will be available through its partners globally, over the air.
