Ready for the next Android maintenance release? I know, you just got Android 7.1.1, officially, but we are now ready to start preparing for Android 7.1.2! Google just announced that the first public beta is rolling out as early as today to supported devices.
At this time, we don’t know much about Android 7.1.2, only that it’s an “incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users.” Yep, that’s all we know until that beta shows up.
Devices supported out of the gate for the Beta include the Pixel and Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C. The Nexus 6P will join the party “soon.” The final release won’t be here for a “couple of months.”
NOTE: Google confirmed to us today that the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 will not see the 7.1.2 update.
