It looks like the end has finally come – the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X did not receive the January 2019 Android security patch. That’s not super surprising, since they were no longer guaranteed to pick-up updates past November 2018, but they did manage to (surprisingly) grab December’s, extending their death one final month.

These are the last two Nexus devices, so this does sort of bring an end to a piece of Android history. While Google hasn’t sold a Nexus branded device in years, these two were the last remaining Nexus devices to still see updates. Unless Google is just holding off on releasing update files, it looks like the end has come.

Feel free to share those bootloop memories of your Nexus 5X and also how easily it was to bend your Nexus 6P. RIP.
