Google Nexus 6: the Android 7.1.1 Nougat Coming Soon!
The Android 7.1.1 Nougat update arrives at the beginning of 2017 for the Nexus 6. Google still did not forget about its older users.
After the Google Pixel, the upgrade to Android 7.1 is now available on other devices. The version 7.1.1 was deployed on some of the Nexus smartphones, but we still had no information about the Nexus, which supposed to receive the update since it already has Android 7.0.
-An update in January:
to try to understand the reason why the Nexus didn't get the 7.1.1 update, AndroidPolice contacted Google and got an answer. The company was forced to delay the deployment of this new update due to a bug, but this one has been corrected. Also, we know that the update of Nexus 6 to Android 7.1.1 is now scheduled for the beginning of January 2017.
To recap, Android 7.1.1 is a minor update of Android 7.1 Nougat. Therefore, the Nexus 6 will benefit from the latest features, such as the new emojis, the restart menu, and many others. Some features like the night mode or the gestures on the fingerprint sensor are reserved for the Pixel.
