NVIDIA plans to update its newest tablet, the SHIELD Tablet K1, to Android 6.0 Marshmallow this month. To celebrate that bit of news, they posted a “sneak peek” video today of the update running on that very tablet, which we have posted above.

In the update, along with all of the goodies Google added to Marshmallow (like Doze, Now on Tap, app permission controls, SD card as internal storage, etc.), NVIDIA is updating the camera app to better take advantage of the tablet’s processing power and loading up the latest Google Now Launcher. 

As a recap, the Tablet K1 is the exact same tablet as the original SHIELD Tablet, only NVIDIA has dropped the price point to $199 by cutting out all accessories, including the charger and stylus.

We’ll let you know when the update begins rolling out.
