Android 7.1.2 Nougat To Roll Out On Nexus & Pixel Devices On April 3; Other Devices Advised To Wait
The Android 7.1.2 Nougat will roll out on April 3. According to reports, it will be available weeks after beta build for Nexus and Pixel devices is released.
All Pixel phones will receive the much-awaited Android 7.1.2 Nougat update according to Canada's largest carrier, Rogers. In addition, this update will bring Voice Over LTE, as well as the latest security updates, come April 3. With the Voice Over LTE, users will be empowered to make phone calls using their Internet connection and will no longer depend on the phone's signal.
Voice Over LTE is not a new thing for Rogers because the company has been running similar tests on Pixel phones using the beta of Android 7.1.2 Nougat. It can be recalled that the previous Android update did not enable the Voice Over LTE feature.
The claim that Android 7.1.2 Nougat update will be released sooner is further strengthened by a blog post that was made by Android's Vice President Dave Burke released in January of 2017. He was conveniently quoted saying that Google is gearing a public release for two months.
Google dub the Android 7.1.2 beta for selected Pixel and Nexus devices as a boost maintenance released to focus on enhancement, which includes optimizations and bug fixes. The update also brought several improvements for users as well as carriers as reported by Yuga Tech.
Although Rogers' announcement is not yet official nor confirmed by Google, it coincides with Google's traditional releases in the past. It can be recalled that the search engine giant always releases this kind of updates on the early part of April. In addition, the company release as well OTA images factory images as well as security bulletins.
Android 7.1.2 Nougat update rolling out on April 3 is not yet definite. However, for those owners who are on Rogers, it is indeed a great news.
