For everyone who owns a Google Nexus 6P or maybe any other Google product, the latest monthly security update will start rolling out as from next week.
The 2015 flagship might have been replaced by the new Google Pixel XL, but the search engine giant obviously has still got some huge love for the phone. Apparently, this update will start hitting the Nexus 6P as from June 6th, which is next week Tuesday.
If you own not just a Nexus 6P but also a Nexus 5X, Pixel or Pixel XL phone, you must know by now that the search engine company usually releases monthly security updates during the week that has the first Monday of every month. With this in mind, don’t be surprised if the update starts making its way to the mentioned devices as from June 5th.
The latest development comes from Vodafone Australia, where the carrier has taken to its official website to confirm the details of this upcoming update with respect to the Google Nexus 6P. Being a typical monthly update, the firmware weighs a meager 33MB and carries software version N2G47W. Since the device had already been updated to the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat, this security patch is based on this OS version.
As usual with OTA updates, this security patch will be available to Google Nexus 6P users gradually. Some will receive it ahead of others, something that could mean you may have to wait for more than a week before you get the notification. While you have the option to wait, it’s also possible to trigger the update manually via Settings>About phone>System updates.
As for now, the only change we know of is the new security patch, but the tech giant has yet to publish the official changelog regarding this update.
