Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features. But now, the company has revealed that the latest update, Android 7.1.1, is now being rolled out to other Android powered mobile devices, which means that some of the cool features previously found on Pixel handsets are now made available to other devices as well. Well, which other Android devices exactly?
The Pixel C tablet that Google unveiled last year (together with the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P) is kind of hard to top. But it appears that Huawei might be left with no other choice but to try and live up to that device as it teams up with Google in building a new tablet. That is if the rumors of Huawei’s tablet collaboration with the tech giant is true.
Back in March early this year, Google had rolled out a public beta of Android Nougat, the newest version of its Android mobile operating system. In the past, Google has deployed yearly updates before, but that March announcement was considered early based on previous Android update schedules. Still, it provided Android users with the option of quickly installing the beta version by way of an over the air roll out.
A week ago, Google had stated that it would begin rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow (the latest version of the Android mobile operating system after Android Lollipop) to Google Nexus handsets this week.
Fulfilling the promise it made earlier this month, Google introduced a couple of new Nexus mobile devices -- the Nexus 5X (built by LG) and the Nexus 6P (built by Huawei) -- during the tech giant’s event held in the city of San Francisco in California this Tuesday. Moreover, the company is already making the latest Nexus handsets available for early order, but the devices will not start shipping until October of this year.
