Nexus 6 Owners Beware! March Security Patch Brings Unexpected Issue
Google recently started rolling out March’s security patch to its Nexus and Pixel smartphones. This is usually good news but sadly, this time this isn’t case. Recent reports are showing that the Android March security update doesn’t only enhance Nexus 6’s security, it also affects its ability to use the Android Pay feature.
Nexus 6 Owners Beware of March’s Security Patch
The Android parent is seeing these monthly patches as incremental updates and that’s why everyone keeps on downloading them as fast as possible. This time we advise Nexus 6 owners to try and avoid installing the latest security patch on their smartphone because they will be faced with unwanted issue. Google’s Product Forums is filled with threads made by Nexus 6 owners who are complaining about the fact that this update hinders the device’s ability to use Android Pay.
Not being able to use Android Pay is quite important since Nexus owners will be required to carry cash with them all the time. The update arrives under the “N6F26U” build number and it should be avoided as long as possible. Additionally, this problem has yet to spread to other devices such as Pixel, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X but we can’t know for sure if the update is going to affect them in the future.
Although, we can be sure that Google is going to do its best in order to fix this major issue. The Android parent is known for the high price it puts on security and it will definitely roll out another OTA (over the air) update that will fix this highly annoying issue.
Nexus 6: Specs
Back in 2014 Google teamed up with Motorola and designed Nexus 6 together. What’s surprising is that despite its age the smartphone is still being used as a daily driver. The reason behind this is because Motorola has equipped Nexus 6 with a rather impressive set of hardware specs.
Without any further ado let’s take a look under Nexus 6’s hood and see what lies beneath it. The smartphone is fueled by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 805 chipset. The processor has been clocked at 2.7GHz and it is coupled with an Adreno 420 graphics processing unit and 3GB of RAM.
