The Android 7.0 Nougat is the latest OS from Google and it was launched on the 22nd of August 2016. While many believed that the OS was bound to be showcased on two brand new Nexus devices, it turned out that it wasn’t necessary. The OS was instead left to roll out directly as an OTA upgrade for Nexus devices.
Because of this, many users believed that the OS will soon roll out on their Nexus 6 and 6P but that didn’t happen because the OTA update files were not available as soon as it was launched. However, it appears that people who have Nexus 6P will now be receiving the OS.
If you’re a Nexus 6P owner and you still haven’t received the update, you should know that it’s possible to download it manually and upgrade to Android Nougat.
At the same time, you should also know that some of the users who have already updated to Android 7.0 Nougat have reported batteries draining very fast on the Nexus 6P.
This is, in fact, one of the problems that delayed the roll out of the OS. But it can be solved with a patch or too and you can probably afford to wait until Google released those patches with fixes.
However, if you really want to test out Android Nougat and you don’t really care about the battery drainage issue, you’ll have to join the Android Beta program from Google which will offer you access to the latest stable and updated version of the OS.
In case you do not own a Nexus 6P, here is some information about the device that might help you decide if it’s worth buying it.
The Nexus 6P sports a 5.7 – inch AMOLED display, 3 GB of RAM with several options for native storage space. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 810 chipset and a 3,450 mAh battery.
