nexus 6 first impressions (17 of 21)

Google released the consumer-ready version of Android 7.0 Nougat a few weeks ago, but it’s taken the company a little longer than usual to push it out to current Nexus devices. More than three weeks went by before Nexus 6P factory images showed up on Google’s website, and we’re still waiting for updates to arrive for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE.

Unfortunately, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE owners will have to wait a bit longer.

Nougat will begin rolling out to the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE 'in the coming weeks'

According to a statement given to Android Police, Google says the Android 7.0 Nougat rollout for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE will begin in a few weeks, though at this time there isn’t an exact timetable as to when it will begin. We’re not sure why these two updates are being delayed for so long, but we’re assuming it has something to do with some bugs that need squashing before an official release rolls out.

If you just can’t wait anymore and are getting sick of boring old Android 6.0 Marshmallow, you might want to try enrolling in the Android Beta Program. You’ll receive an OTA update to the most recent Developer Preview, which I can say from experience isn’t too much different from the official version of Android 7.
