A few days ago, we told you that the Google Nexus 5X has received a notable performance update alongside the March security update.

The new update for the Google Nexus 6P will have your phone running build number MHC19I, up from the current MMB29Q Android build. Aside from containing the March security patch, the OTA update also includes the performance updates that Google has baked into the MHC19J build for the Nexus 5X.

According to Google, the new update for the Nexus 6P contains updates meant to improve the performance and the stability of the Nexus 6P. Aside from 'general device performance', other fixes include a patch for the alarm system, connectivity improvements, as well as carrier-specific bug fixes.

Some owners have been reporting that the performance of the Google Nexus 6P takes a hit when the device is under stress.
