Nexus 6P Receives Mobile Data Bug Alongside Android 8.0 Oreo
Google’s highly anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo finally arrived to Nexus 6P. The new operating system brings the smartphone’s Android experience to the next level since it includes a large number of innovative features and performance enhancement tweaks. Although, while one would expect it to be flawless, a rather significant bug still managed to pass by Google’s developer team.
Nexus 6P Mobile Data Bug
Right from the start, we need to mention that Nexus 6P owners are not the only ones affected by this bug since both Pixel and the larger Pixel XL variant are also affected by it. Nonetheless, the bug resides in the mobile data code and it doesn’t allow users to use mobile data after they reached their initial cap.
This bug is quite troublesome since being able to connect to mobile data is what makes smartphones so useful. Fortunately, Google acknowledged this issue and marked it as a top priority. Therefore, we can expect Google’s developmer team to release a quick OTA (over the air) software fix during the upcoming days.
New Data Management System
The reason why Nexus 6P and Pixel’s data connection is bugged is because Android 8.0 Oreo introduced a new data management system. This system automatically blocks data connection once the cap is reached so that the owner doesn’t have to pay extra on his monthly cell plan. While this feature is great in theory, it can be quite annoying for people who don’t care about paying extra for their data plan and just want access to internet wherever they go.
OTA Fix Confirmed
As previously mentioned, we can expect an OTA fix to arrive at any moment now. Google’s developer team confirmed that this will happen but it didn’t release an official date. We should also note that Android 8.0 Oreo presented another mobile data bug in the past but it was quickly squashed.
