Google's Nexus devices are always the first ones to get the new Android update. However, not all of them can get the new Android version all at once. Most of the time, older devices tend to get the updates a lot later. This is the case of the Nexus 9 LTE and Nexus 6. Luckily, though, the Nexus 6 has already started receiving the Nougat update a few days ago. Now, the Nexus 9 LTE follows.

Android Nougat Update For Nexus 9 LTE

The Google Nexus 9 LTE will be getting the Android Nougat update with a build number of NRD90R. This update will also include September's security patch, GSM Arena reported. However, it's worth noting that the Nougat's Factory and OTA images for the Nexus 9 LTE are not yet available from the company's blog. Nexus 9 LTE owners just need to keep an eye out for the Nougat update on their devices.

Android Nougat Update For Nexus 6

Android Police shared a few days ago that Nexus 6 devices from all across the globe already started receiving the Android Nougat update. The said update is around 860 MB in size and it also includes the October security patch for Android. For people who has not been notified of the update, you can check on Google's factory and OTA images instead.

Android Nougat Update For Non-Nexus Devices

Non-Google devices are yet to get their Android Nougat update. Smartphone manufacturers apart from Google tend to get the Android firmware at a later time. This means that they also have to take time in conducting thorough tests before releasing the new update to their own devices.

Luckily, though, it's already been weeks since any news came out about Android Nougat arriving on smartphone developers' doorstep. This means that Android Nougat rollout for devices from Samsung, Motorola, Sony, HTC and more are all coming soon.

Recent reports suggest that a Nougat version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 has already been spotted in a benchmark site. This could mean that the company has already completed its testing process and is now polishing the Android Nougat for Samsung Galaxy S7. Right now, it's safe to assume that all other non-Nexus devices are about to get their Android Nougat update very soon.
