Nexus 6 Will Soon Bid A Fond Farewell

By  | 

Some owners of the Nexus 6 are frightened of reports that have been going around that suggest that the Nexus isn’t going to be getting Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This was down to sources suggesting that the handset has been shelved by Google.

However this isn’t true at all as we have now heard from the Google blog about the Nexus 6 and the fact that it will be getting the update to Nougat, along with the Nexus 9, 5X and the 6P.

Of course there is some bad news as soon we will be bidding the Nexus 6 a fond farewell as it isn’t going to get updates past version 7.0.

The Nexus 6 isn’t going to be dead and gone though as we expect the handset to still be given the monthly security updates. These updates should continue for around one year, which would take us to around November 2017.

So are you the owner of the Google Nexus 6 and have we put your mind at rest about updates for the device, including Nougat?
