Google Pixel and Pixel XL will ditch Android Nougat 7.0

After the unofficial announcement of this year’s Google phones, a new leak is suggesting those devices won’t run the current version of Android but a updated one. So the Google Pixel and Pixel XL will actually run Android Nougat 7.1 which will fix many bugs and issues.

LlabTooFer on Twitter is reporting that both devices will launch with versions Android 7.1 and build NDE63B. These are just numbers right now, but the numbering scheme suggests these are maintenance upgrades to refine the initial launch of Nougat.

Of course, we don’t know what these refinements will be just yet. While Google has used these incremental upgrades in the past to tweak and add new features, they’ve also used them to simply fix underlying bugs and other things users probably wouldn’t notice under the hood. For now, though, we’re expecting at least everything in the current release of Android 7.0 Nougat, and that’s already sweet enough to keep us happy.

Also, This might be the key to mystery of Android One devices not getting official Android Nougat. Like what happened in the time of Android Lollipop update, Google is planning to update the Android One phones with Android 7.1 Nougat straight and introduce the new Google Lineup! 😀 We ain’t confirmed yet so we’ll have to wait for everything to be official!
