Google has now posted the factory image files and release notes for the Android 7.1.2 beta that was announced yesterday. As of this moment, Google has posted builds NPG05D and NPG05E.
Currently, we are seeing files for the Pixel C (NPG05D), Nexus Player (NPG05D), Pixel (NPG05E), and Pixel XL (NPG05E). Of course, the Nexus 5X is supposed to be a part of the initial update, while Google has already told us that the Nexus 6P would be a bit later. We aren’t seeing the 5X image yet, but will update this post as things change.
UPDATE: Nexus 5X image now available as build NPG05D.

So what’s new? Google hasn’t exactly said just yet, but did post the following release notes:
- This public beta release may have various stability, battery, or performance issues on supported devices.
- Some apps may not function as expected on this public beta release. This includes Google’s apps as well as other apps.
- This public beta release is Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) approved on supported devices. Apps that depend on CTS approved builds should work normally on these devices (Android Pay, for example).
