Vodafone is claiming that the update will include December’s Android security patch and will take up to 2 weeks for the update to be fully rolled out. It’s also unknown whether the Pixel, Pixel XL, and Nexus 5X will see the update on the same date or if there will some type of discrepancy.
The site has put out full details of how the update will be rolled out for users. It reads:
The update will be progressively rolled out:
Day 1-3: 10,000 phones are selected at random to be eligible for the update, users are either alerted via FOTA Push Message or must check manually for the update
Day 4-13: an additional 10% of the remaining pool are selected per day and users must check manually for the update
Day 14: All devices are eligible for the update
This means that all Nexus 6P users are expected to receive the Android Nougat 7.1.1 update by December 20. However, Google hasn’t made the information official yet. Google’s new update brings with it new features such as app shortcuts and image keyboard support.
