android n developer preview

Android N Developer Preview 5 just got posted and is available for the flashing! As of right now, it looks like all supported devices are getting Android build NPD90G. Note that this is the final developer preview before the stable version rolls out “later this summer.”

Again, the supported devices include the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 (WiFi and LTE), Nexus Player, Pixel C, and the General Mobile 4G (Android One) device.

We’re still looking through the changes and will update this post. 

For now, grab the image files here! The OTA zip files are here.

UPDATE:  Google has also published the notes for DP5. In the “New” section, they only mention that this is the final preview, but no other new features or tweaks are included. This is about as final as it gets before stable, folks. In the “Known Issues” section, just know that there are slight stability issues still, along with multi-window, camera, DND, Vulkan, and Android Auto bugs. Hit up this link to check out deeper details.

UPDATE 2:  The Android version has now been changed to Android 7.0 in this build. Also, here is the Easter Egg for preview 5.

UPDATE 3: There is much more to this Easter Egg than we had initially realized. It involves catching cats…yes, similarly to how you might think about catching Pokemon. Details here.
