It’s been months since Google Nexus 6P received the update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat over the air, but as it is, not all regions and units have been updated to the latest version of Nougat.
According to reports coming from Australia, those using the Google Nexus 6P on Optus will start receiving the update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat before the end of this month. As at the time of this writing, the phone is running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but the carrier has just updated the status to show that it’s currently testing the newest version of the OS on the phone, with this testing phase “expected to complete mid to late July.”
When the update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat finally rolls out, Nexus 6P users on Optus will also receive updated security patches. The update will be released over the air, which should also mean that not all units will receive the notification to download the OS at once.
The update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat on Google Nexus 6P comes at a time when other users of the phone are expecting to see the update to Android O, something that could mean Optus users will also have to wait even much longer before they receive this year’s version of Android OS. Still, it’s better late than never.
