The Android 7.1.2 Beta Rollout

The Android 7.0 Nougat come with a large number of features and indeed has been the talk of OS lovers since the new year popped in mainly because the OS rivals Apple’s iOS. Both OS have been on the top of their games with new security features and of course improved performance upgrades along with great user interface.

However, while other mid-range Smartphones are yet to get the Android 7.0 Nougat pushed to their device, the OS has stepped up a notch with the release of the beta update of the OS to select phones.

Part of the select smartphones which has enjoyed the premium advantage of getting the OS early enough in time to get the beta update includes the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player and Pixel C devices.

The Nexus 6P will, however, have to wait a while longer or it to get the update as it is yet to be rolled out to the smartphone as of yet. It is, however, a sure deal that the update will land soon on the device as Google has confirmed it will be rolling the beta update to the device soon.

However, the beta update to the Android 7.0, the 7.1.2 Nougat comes with much disappointment to tech lover who expected significant upgrades on the latest OS build release as it comes sporting only bug fixes.

Google in its description of the beta release noted that the Nougat 7.1.2 OS comes as an “incremental maintenance release” which has been tailored to focus more on bugfixes, optimizations, and small enhancements for carriers and users.

The arrival of the latest beta rollout will, unfortunately, signal an end to the era of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 smartphones as Google further revealed that the smartphones would not be on its list for the Android 7.1.2 update. Google, however, noted that the smartphones’ support would not be discontinued totally as it will receive regular security updates.

The consumer-ready version of the OS will, however, be made available in a few months.
