Amidst all the buzz about the upcoming Android’s subsequent iteration, the ‘Android O’; interestingly, here comes a new update to the current Android 7.1 Nougat. However, it haven’t come as an unexpected surprise, since its beta versions were already released, earlier. Well, this Android 7.1.2 is apparently the last update to the Nougat, before the next version of the OS.
The first beta build for the 7.1.2 Nougat was released by the Google, in January of this year and successively the second beta was released, very recently in the March. The beta versions of the update, were rolled-out, only to the selected models such as the Pixel, Pixel C, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus Player.
The beta builds clearly, pointed out that it wouldn’t be a bump-up; but just a few minor enhancements in few features, and bug fixes. Moreover, the update is seems to have come-out as per the plans, as it was expected in the Q1, itself.
Currently the new update is primarily pushed to the Nexus Player and Google Pixel C devices, right now. In further, the update is also hopefully expected soon to be made available for the other devices too. On the first glance, we could see that the update has brought-in the fingerprint scanner gesture to the Nexus devices, which was available, only in the Pixel devices.
In addition to that the Pixel Launcher, has been integrated to the Pixel C devices, and an improved option to put-up the live wallpapers, in the selected spaces, are some of the notable features form the 7.1.2.
As we have conferred beforehand, it is also very important to note that the said update wouldn’t be available for the HTC Nexus 9 and the Motorola Nexus 6. This is due to the fact that both the devices have crossed the updates-guaranteed time period; however, they will be receiving all the important security patches, at least a year on.
