Android 7.1.1 Update for Nexus Smartphones

Latest Android OS Nougat is going to enter its second iteration dubbed Android 7.1.1 officially very soon. As always Nexus users will be the first to taste all new features of Android Nougat latest iteration. As you might know already, Google had officially released Android 7.1.1 Developer Preview 2 for Nexus smartphones this week. After the testing phase is complete we have some hints about when it can be rolled out officially for various Android devices. Here in this article, we will be looking at possible dates when Google Nexus devices can receive latest Android 7.1.1 update and what all features will it consume under the hood.

As per reports from Vodafone Australia, Google is going to come up with official Android Nougat update on 6th December 2016. This update will be rolled out for most of the Nexus devices including Nexus 6P, Nexus 5Z, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Pixel C. Update for all these Nexus devices will be released at same time and will be fully fledged in terms of versions (no additional patches should be required for next few weeks, if everything works as planned).

It is interesting to note that this update time is going to clash with the awaited security patch for Nexus smartphones that users are waiting since a quite long now. As nothing is confirmed from Google officially so we can’t be fully sure whether Android 7.1.1 Nougat Update for Nexus will be rolled on 6th December or not but in case it is being rolled out at presumed date then Nexus users are going to be busy with installing both the updates/patches. There are very rare chances of any sort of damage happening to Android 7.1.1 with security patch but please be careful while trying both of them (ideally nothing will happen but please be safe from your end).


Like all other updates, it is also going to be rolled out through OTA. Eligible users will get direct notifications to their smartphone informing about latest features and improvements as part of 7.1.1 update. You can download the update through high-speed internet or Wi-Fi even. No manual steps are required, you only need to follow step by step onscreen instructions.
