You’ve most likely heard about the new OS from Google, the Android 7.0 Nougat by now and you’re probably wondering when you’re going to get it, especially if you have a Nexus device like the Nexus 6 or the Nexus 9 LTE.
Well, it appears that Google has hinted that the next devices to be getting the upgrade will be the Nexus 6 along with the Nexus 9 LTE but there was no mention of an exact launch date, according to Android Police. All they said is that the devices will start receiving the OTA notification in the coming weeks.
Some tech analysts believe that the two devices will get the update within two weeks from now or perhaps in late September because Google has laid out the source files for the new OS and has encouraged third party devs to start testing their own Android Nougat platform.
The thing is that non-Nexus devices will not be getting the exact same Android Nougat update as the Nexus one. It will be similar but it will be tailored to certain features that other devices have.
It is also speculated that Google is already working on a 7.1 version of Android Nougat and that it will kill the Nexus name and replace it with ‘Pixel’. It’s also believed that Google is preparing to launch two new Nexus (or Pixel) devices very soon, maybe as early as the beginning of October.
These two devices were supposed to be the ones to showcase Android Nougat at its launch but that never happened and they are now presumed to be named Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL – because of Google’s alleged name changing policy for the Nexus lineup.
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are now expected to be the ones that will showcase the Android 7.1 Nougat platform.
