Google's Nexus 6 is Now Getting Android 7.1.1 Nougat


So, here comes another update. But this time it's little late and its okay to wait if for 2 days if you are getting more stable update.

Elsewhere, the move to Android 7.1.1 Nougat will ensure the camera app has a faster startup, as well as the latest security patches, first rolled out by Google in December 2016.

Google partnered with Huawei back in 2015 and designed Nexus 6P which is considered to be one of the greatest Android powered devices.

Google is making the January security update in two different levels.

If you own a Nexus 6 and you weren't really holding your breath for an update to Android 7.1.1, well we guess this news will make your day.

The new build brings with it bug fixes as well as a January security patch with almost 50 security updates.

Recently Google Pixel owners have reported issues with audio distortion and battery on their phones. This is the notable bug fixes or new features this update.

The most severe of these issues is a Critical security vulnerability that could enable remote code execution on an affected device through multiple methods such as email, web browsing, and MMS when processing media files.

A certified Google employee posted on a Reddit forum saying that this problem isn't software related but it's actually caused by a hardware malfunction and Google isn't able to fix it through an OTA (over the air) update.
