Nexus 6P Now Comes with Android March Security Bulletin
Google has teamed up with many tech companies along the years and created highly successful Nexus devices. This all came to an end last year when the Android parent decided to leave the Nexus brand behind and venture into the smartphone world with its new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. To Google’s surprise, Nexus smartphones aren’t that easy forgotten especially Nexus 6P.
Nexus 6P Receives March Security Patch
The Android parent saw that customers are still inclined towards acquiring Nexus smartphones and that’s why it recently upgraded their security with the March Android security bulletin. This update first arrived to Google’s Pixel devices and then to Nexus 6P. The said security patch takes care of 60 security issues including one major exploit that allows hackers to remotely execute Android powered smartphones.
Nexus 6P is the result of Google and Huawei’s collaboration and it’s the best Nexus smartphone ever made, at least when it comes to hardware performances. The fact that Google keeps on enhancing its security ensures that Nexus 6P is going to live a long life and that its last days are not even close. This is quite great since the entire Nexus community believed that Google wants to kill off the Nexus brand in favor of the newer Pixel one.
Nexus 6P Hardware Specs
As previously mentioned, this is the most advanced Nexus smartphone when it comes to hardware power. Google’s decision to go with Huawei has been a good one since the Chinese manufacturer equipped Nexus 6P with only the best parts available on the market. With that being said, let’s take a look under Nexus 6P’s hood and see what we can find.
The smartphone is fueled by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 810 chipset. The processor clocks at 2.0 GHz and it is fitted with an Adreno 430 graphics processing unit and 3GB of RAM. These hardware parts make Nexus 6P a viable choice as a daily driver despite the fact that it was launched back in 2015. In the end, we think it’s safe to presume that Google will keep on enhancing Nexus 6P’s security all throughout 2017. Especially since Nexus 6P boasts with one of the largest Android fan-bases.
