and Pixel XL
devices registered in Android’s Beta Program are beginning to get a stable version of Android 7.1.2. The Nougat update was rolled out to Nexus and Pixel devices at the beginning of the month, with Pixel C being among the first ones to get it. The update became available on Pixel and Pixel XL phones in the past weeks, but some users reported ‘broken’ fingerprint sensors on their units after downloading and installing.
This morning, an allegedly ‘stable’ version of Android 7.1.2 became downloadable in Beta, weighing at 31MB, with build numbers NHG47K for Verizon customers, N2G47J for Deutsche Telekom, and N2G47E for all unlocked units. The 7.1.2 update seeks to fix known Bluetooth issues, early battery shut downs and reported camera problems, as well as audio popping at high volume. It also adds better fingerprint performance and minor bugs fixes, and puts a “Powered by Android” logo in the bottom of the Pixel loading screen.
The latest version update should not change anything notable in how 7.1.2 feels and looks, and we are yet to confirm whether this Beta release will indeed fix once and for all the cracks in Nougat’s second maintenance update. After all, it may be the last one before we see Android O.
