Google has started rolling out the final stable Android 7.1.2 Nougat update for Nexus 5X and 6P. We received the update on Nexus 5X few days back and now according to a new report from Android Police the latest update for Nexus 6P is also out.
The Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 update last week came with build number N2G47F, and it was about 1GB in size, since we didn’t enroll for the program earlier. The Nexus 6P update according to Android Police comes with build number N2G47H, and is nearly 26MB in size (for users already running beta build).
Although report suggests that the new update is targeted at those Nexus 6P users who enrolled under beta program, but given the nature of our Nexus 5X update, it seems that the rollout to all Nexus users but in gradual manner and it is possible that beta users are given priority. To note, the latest Android 7.1.2 update for Nexus 5X and 6P also include the security patch for this month.
While there should not be any feature differences between the beta build and stable build, but what it essentially meas that users on stable build will keep getting security patch OTAs or further OTA updates in future. The latest Android 7.1.2 update was earlier released for Pixel devices. The update fixed the early shutdown issue and some more user reported bugs including pink banding on the camera.
If you have one of the eligible Google devices, then head to phone’s settings and check for the system update under About section.
