With the launch of Pixel phones in October last year, Google brought a host of new features and improvements with Android 7.1, but it was limited to the Pixel phones only. The update was made available for Nexus devices later on and now the company is all set to release the Android Nougat 7.1.2 update and it will be available for both Nexus and Pixel phones.
Android Central reports that the update will be rolled out starting April 3rd to a selected Nexus devices and Pixel phones. It isn’t exactly known which Nexus devices will get the update, but we are expecting the recent phones with Nexus branding will get the update for sure.
The beta version of this update was released for the entire range of Pixel devices and a few Nexus devices in January this year. The update brought several enhancements along with gestures for the fingerprint scanner for Nexus 5X. The Nexus 6P was kept out of the first phase of this rollout and it received the update later on in February sans the gesture feature.
During that time, Google said that the final build of the update will be released by the end of March, which coincides with the new rumoured date. Rogers, the biggest carrier in Canada, has also announced that their Pixel phones will be receiving an update on April 3rd that will enable VoLTE and will also get the latest security update, further confirming the date.
Pixel and Nexus devices come with an assurance from Google for being the first devices to receive the latest Android updates as and when they are released. But, if you have a phone other than from the two series, there are high chances that you are still waiting for the initial Android Nougat 7.0 update to hit your phone, leave aside the Android 7.1.2 update.
