Google will soon be showing the Nexus 6 the door once the Android Nougat updates are done. The following update slated for the device will be the v7.1.1, which is expected to reach the device on January 6.
After that, it’ll be wise for Nexus 6 users to give up on the Android 8.0 update from Google. At this point, even third-party developers are becoming uncertain.
Seeing that CyanogenMod is now dead, there is really no guarantee that Nexus 6 users will be able to acquire the v8.0 via LineageOS, which took over the company to rebuild the platform for unofficial ROMs in the future.
Some people will have to lower their expectations in terms of the arrival of Android 7.1.1, especially if they are linked to any one of the major US carriers. The January 6 launch date is merely for non-carrier models thus it will take a longer time to see the update if you’re registered with Verizon or T-Mobile.
Well, if you’re a Nexus 6 user, will you be bidding farewell to your beloved device once the updates cease to arrive?
