It’s already been 6 weeks since Google released the Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta version to a handful of Pixel and Nexus devices. According to the reports, the tech giant is supposed to rollout the final version soon enough. Naturally, Android users are happy with the news, but reports show that the company will first release it to select devices first.
A report release by WccFtech, Google will start the rollout in the following weeks. As such, we should receive it sometime at the end of March or in the beginning of April. Google declared in fact that the Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta version represents an additional update. Its focus consists in improving performance and fixing the bugs that were reported. Moreover, it will solve some issues related to the carrier.
The expectation of Google releasing the update in the upcoming weeks was made public after the Canadian carrier Rogers has declared an update for the Pixel devices it has. The update will supposedly come together with support for VoLTE, together with the security patch released by Google in March.
Rogers was part of the testing process of the VoLTE for quite a few months. The testing involved the Pixel smartphones and it referred to the Android 7.1.2 beta version. Now, it seems that the carrier is bringing the update to its users on April 3.
No update for Nexus 6 and 9
Sadly, Google confirmed back in February that the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 models will not be receiving any update to the Android 7.1.2 version. Even so, both of them will continue to get the security updates. You will also have to wait for the update if you’re not one of the Nexus or Pixel users, since it will take longer for the rollout to reach you.
