Android 7.0 Nougat update could hit Nexus devices on August 22

Google already confirmed that it will roll out Android 7.0 Nougat sometime in Q3 2016. Now Canadian mobile provider Telus has updated their software schedule that says that both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones will get the Android Nougat update on August 22nd.

Last year Google released Android 6.0 Marshmallow factory images for Nexus devices on October 5th, as Telus had confirmed earlier, so Android 7.0 will most likely roll out on Monday. Telus says that “all dates are approximate and subject to change.” just in case if there are any last minute bugs that needs to be fixed.

Google released Android 7.0 developer preview 5  for compatible Nexus devices last month. It released developer preview 4 in June that brought final Android N SDK with final APIs (API level 24). Both these updates did not any new features and come only with latest bug fixes and optimizations across the system and in pre-installed apps.

Google is also expected to release HTC-made Nexus devices codenamed Sailfish and Marlin in the next few weeks running the latest Android Nougat.
