Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE should be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in the coming weeks


While it's been several weeks since Google started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat updates, owners of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE still have to make do with Android 6.0 Marshmallow (despite the fact that the two devices are on the official Nougat update list). However, if you're guessing that the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE should get Nougat sometime soon, you are right.

According to Android Police, Google says that both the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE will be updated to Android 7.0 starting the next few weeks. Thus, if you have any of the two devices, you could be getting a taste of Nougat before the end of September (though it might also happen in early October).

Released back in October 2014 with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board, the Nexus 6 (pictured above) and Nexus 9 are now almost 2 years old. This means Android 7.0 Nougat is the last major software update that they're getting, although they'll still receive regular security updates, at least for a while.
