A recent leak by Australia’s Vodafone put all doubts to rest by confirming that Android 7.1.1 Nougat will start rolling out to Google Nexus 6P beginning December 6th.
According to the platform, the upcoming OTA update will weigh about 650MB and it will also bring along the latest Android security update for the month of December. This is something not strange to keen followers of Android Nougat developments as Google had promised to deliver the update in early December.
While Google Nexus 6P users are still waiting for the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, those using the low-end Android One or General Mobile 4G handsets can already step up their OS version to the new release. General Mobile 4G first appeared in May last year and this year, there is already a new version that comes preinstalled with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Apparently, this device can be updated to the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat via an OTA update.
The new OTA weighs about 240MB and besides carrying the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, you also get the latest Android security patch for the month of December. The update also brings the usual, among them, improved security and stability as well as bug fixes.
This is huge for those using the entry level General Mobile 4G handset, especially since not so many, including those on the latest Google Pixel and Pixel XL, can speak the same language. Nonetheless, the availability of this OS on Android One devices means that those using the aforementioned Pixel phones alongside the likes of Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X as well as Pixel C tablet should expect to start receiving OTA notifications anytime from now.
Even though the new Nougat update has been spotted on General Mobile 4G devices in Turkey, any person using the phone should be able to check for the availability of the OS through the About Phone Settings.
