Google Pixel and Pixel XL to get Android O OTA by mid-August

Android O

Google has already released three Android O developer preview versions to the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X and is expected to add a fourth and final version very soon.

Once the final developer preview version comes out, the next big thing to come to the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones will be the stable version of Android O via an OTA update. Last year, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X started receiving the stable OTA of Android Nougat on August 22 and if the latest reports are to be believed, the Pixel family could be ready to receive the update to this year’s version by mid-August.

According to Android Police’s David Ruddock, Google might release the official Android O OTA update for the Pixel and Pixel XL in early or mid-August. This was expected given that everything about the new OS has been ahead of time, especially when compared to last year’s version. However, this is not an official word from Google, which also means that changes could happen to these alleged dates.

There’s no word on whether the Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will also be part of the initial rollout, but given that the 2015 pair has been receiving the beta updates at the same time as the Pixels, they could also get the OTA updates at about the same time, if not a week or so later.
