Android 7.0 Nougat Update Coming to Google Nexus 6 on September 12th

Google released Android 7.0 Nougat a few weeks ago, but not all device are already receiving the update.

The Google Nexus 6P, however, has been all over the headlines thanks to the fact that the company has availed the OTA files as well as Factory Images with respect to the new OS.


While this is happening, the other eligible device, Google Nexus 6, is also receiving the update, but only for those who were already part of the beta program and those using the unlocked versions. Still, you can sign up for the program and get access to the latest version of Android 7.0 Nougat for your Nexus 6. But if you are a Verizon user, you might want to exercise some little patience as the giant American carrier seems to be readying something amazing in two days’ time.

Starting September 12, it is possible that those using the 2014 Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 will start seeing the new Android 7.0 Nougat OS hit their devices. Apparently, the company’s software updates page lists the Google Nexus 6 to have received its last update on this date, which is this coming Monday. This is an interesting development, especially when looking at the company’s past record when it comes to rolling out major software updates.

Still, there is no need to get your hopes too high since the support page doesn’t go into much details. In fact, the only thing the page does is show a date of when the device was last updated. With this in mind, don’t be surprised if you are slammed with a monthly security patch for your Google Nexus 6, perhaps, in readiness for the new Android 7.0 Nougat update.


In short, it is hard to tell at the moment what exactly will transpire with this rumored update. If anything, those using the Google Nexus 6 on Verizon will have to keep an eye on their phones as from Monday in order to really tell what’s cooking. But as noted earlier, the unlocked variants of the phone started receiving the OTA update a few days ago, something that could mean not all devices have already received the OS.
