January security patch now available for Google Nexus & Pixel devices

There are many people who would like to know just how many units of the Nexus 6P have been sold compared to other brands, so come on Google tell us.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat is making its way to the Nexus 6.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat might not the last update the Nexus 6 receives this year, but we doubt the smartphone will be getting another major OS update since it's older than two year. This includes new and updated emoji characters, the image keyboard, rounded icons, and app shortcuts. The vulnerabilities are listed on Android security bulletin. It has gotten security updates, but not the latest and greatest version of Android. The smartphone was Google's flagship device until a couple of months ago when Pixel and Pixel XL were launched.

The update (build N6F26Q) is available via full system image and over-the-air update and can be found on Google's Android developer site, though it may be a while before Nexus 6 users see the full roll-out.

Even though the Nexus 6 is nearly three years old at this point, Google's attempts to keep it up to date with all of their other devices are an indication that the company isn't ready to entirely dedicate their time and effort to the Pixel and Pixel XL. Nevertheless, Android 7.1.1 is an update you should be looking forward to. The Nexus 6 might have been an exception, as the phone was launched back in November 2016.
