Nexus 5X Finally Receives the Latest Android 7.1.2 Update
If you own a Nexus 5X device, then you’ve been waiting for the Android 7.1.2 update, which Google has released this week. We have to mention that this update was released more for the Pixel C in terms of new features, but at the same time the Nexus devices also got some feature improvements and bug fixes.
The Nexus 5X owners should see the Android 7.1.2 OTA update hitting their devices in the following days, since Google has mentioned that it will start rolling out the new update last Monday.
However, if you can’t wait for the OTA update to hit your device, you can always download the factory images from the Google’s factory image website and install it on your device.
Aside from the Pixel C and Nexus 5X, this update has also been released for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus Player and Nexus 6P handsets. We have to mention that the Android 7.1.2 update will be the latest software feature upgrade for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 6. The two mentioned handsets have been released back in 2014 and their two year warranty has expired for quite a while.
As we’ve mentioned above, the Android 7.1.2 comes with many new feature updates for the Pixel devices, especially for the Pixel C, but at the same time the new update comes with some general improvements and bug fixes for the Nexus 5X. The most important changes include improved notification stability, general connectivity improvements, battery usage alerts and a fingerprint swipe feature update. The new “Battery Usage Alerts” feature is found in the battery settings tab and it will alert you about the applications that are “abusing” the battery of your handset.
The Android 7.1.2 Nougat update also comes with the April security update, which fixes some security issues. For a full list of security improvements, you can head to Android security web page.
