Google has been releasing a number of updates for the Android Nougat OS over the past few months. The latest update that has been rolling out to the Google Pixel and Pixel XL as well other high-end Google devices has been that of the Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS. However, this update is now rolling out for the users of the Nexus 6P smartphone as well. Users of the Google Nexus 6P who were testing the beta version of this OS in the past are now getting the final build!
The Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS final build has been rolling out to the beta testers on the Google Nexus 6P smartphones. The users who had been testing various builds of this OS on their Google Nexus 6P are now being rewarded by being among the first few Nexus users to get this update! The update comes out at just 25MB in size, which is understandable because most of what the update carries for other non-Beta users is already with these users.
Basically the update upgrades your Google Nexus smartphone from Android 7.1.2 Beta to Android 7.1.2 Final build – not much of a change here, and users shouldn’t really feel much of a difference. After the update the build number that the users would get for their version of the Android Nougat OS would be N2G47H. This is the same build that comes out for the non-testers.
The one major difference that is between the beta build and the final build is that the beta builds will not be getting any future OTA updates while the final builds will. If you are a Google Nexus 6P users on the Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS Beta, we strongly recommend you to upgrade to the regular final build. If you are too eager to get the final build and can’t wait for your OTA update, you can sideload it using the ZIP file of the update on Google’s server. (Keep in mind this is only for the Nexus 6P users. Other phones should be getting the updates soon).
