Android 7.1.1 release with December security patch due December 6
According to one of Australia’s largest cellular carriers, the public release of Android 7.1.1 is due out starting December 6. Vodafone Australia has released details of the OTA, scheduled to begin rolling out at 5:00 PM AEST on December 6, which will include the December 5 security patch from Google.
The Android 7.1.1 update will begin rolling out for Nexus devices at that time. According to Vodafone’s release notes, only 10,000 phones will receive the update in the first three days as it is trickled out. Starting from the fourth day, another 10% of “the remaining pool” will be selected per day to receive the update, with all devices being eligible after day 14.
If you want to take a deeper look at what you can expect from the new Android 7.1 features, check out our Nougat review which covers the recent developer previews, the last of which only rolled out last week. As with the first official Marshmallow build, we don’t expect there to be anything really different from what you will have found in the final developer preview.
