It seems that the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update is already set to be released for many Nexus devices sometime soon, but, unfortunately, not all of them will receive it. According to Droid Life, the Nexus 9 and Nexus 6 are two devices that will not receive the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update.
The same website claims that the update will not be released for Nexus 9 and Nexus 6, because they are quite old already. However, the mentioned devices will still receive security patches in 2017.
While the Nexus 9 and Nexus 6 are quite disappointed because they will not receive the Android 7.1.2 Nougat on their devices, there are other Nexus devices that will receive the mentioned update soon.
On the Android Developers blog, Dave Burke, the vice president of engineering, has confirmed that the Nexus Player and Nexus 5X will receive the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update once it will be ready. This update will also be released for Pixel C, Pixel Xl and Pixel, but it is not yet known when exactly this will happen.
The developers are also planning to release an update for the Nexus 6P, but it is not sure yet what it will contain. There are reports which are suggesting that this update will come with bug fixes and performance improvements.
The owners of the devices that are eligible for the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update can join the Android Beta Program and download/install the new operating system manually. However, if you don’t want to participate in the testing phase, you will have to wait for the full version to be released, which should take a couple of months.
Will you install the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update on your device as soon as it will be released or will you wait to read the reports about it?
