Android software updates are highly important, not only because they improve performance and add new features, but also for the better security of your phones. While the Android 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat rollout is still underway for most OEMs, the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat has already arrived.
General Mobile 4G, which is a part of Google's Android One project, and Cherry Mobile One G1 have reportedly received the stable version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat and a screenshot from the phone's users backs the claim, Android Guilder reported. As per the screenshot, the new software update weighs around 240MB, which makes it essential for users to connect to Wi-Fi before downloading the new firmware.
Android 7.1.1 Nougat rollout was dated for December 6 for select devices, including Pixel, Nexus and Android One smartphones. But as per the latest development, it looks like the rollout has begun a few days early.
According to media reports, the new update also includes the December security patch, improvements to security, stability and bug fixes. But the official details on the latest software from Google haven't arrived, but we can expect it soon enough.
The first devices to get the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update include Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, Pixel C, General Mobile 4G (Android One), Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Vodafone Australia has already listed Android 7.1.1 rollout date as December 6 for Nexus 6P, and the update weighs about 650MB, the report added.
