It appears that a certain group of users are less interested about what the latest operating system from Google – Android 7.0 Nougat – is all about and are more interested in the upcoming upgrade entitled Android 7.1 Nougat. We’re referring to Nexus devices users.
Both the Android operating systems and the Nexus devices (now named Pixel) belong to Google so usually, when Google launches a new and improved Android OS, the Nexus/ Pixel devices are the first ones to get the upgrade. Other Android-based devices from different manufacturers have to wait a while until they upgrade due to some tweaks that have to be made to the operating systems.
So, while manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei or Sony are working around the clock to get the Android 7.0 Nougat to their devices, Google is already preparing to bring Android 7.1 Nougat to its devices. It is scheduled to roll out as a dev preview beta to certain devices like the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C at the end of October and is expected to come as a final build sometime in December 2016. Naturally, it will also roll out to the new Pixel devices: the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL.
As for the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player, they are expected to get the final Android 7.1 Nougat build directly in December. There are no exact dates of when any of this will happen.
The Android 7.1 Nougat is expected to come with many improvements and fixes for the 7.0 version and it will also come with the Daydream VR platform which should end up being pretty fun to test out.
As mentioned before, the upgrade will be available as a developer beta starting with the end of October but anybody that is enlisted in the Android Beta program can download it and check it out.
