Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Google Nexus 6 to be released in January

Now over 2 years old, the Motorola-made Nexus 6 is the oldest smartphone that's still receiving software updates from Google. The handset got a taste of Android 7.0 Nougat in October, and it's also getting the newer Android 7.1.1 - but not this year. 

According to Android Police, Google wanted to update the Nexus 6 to Android 7.1.1 Nougat this month - at the same time with other Nexus models - but found a "last minute bug." While Google fixed the problem, it's not yet ready to release the 7.1.1 update, instead scheduling it for an over-the-air roll out beginning early January.

We don't really know how many Nexus 6 units are currently being used around the world, but it's certainly nice to see that Google still cares about this device. Most probably, Android 7.1.1 Nougat is the last significant update that the Nexus 6 is receiving.
