Android Nougat 7.1 October Release: Which Phones Will Get It First?
The Android Nougat 7.1 beta will be unveiled last week of October. As soon as it is out, the first phones that will likely get the update are Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P and 5X smartphones, at least that is what recent reports say.
Android Nougat 7.1 Rolls Out To Select Devices
Aside from the Google-run phones, HTC 10, HTC One A9, HTC M9, LG V20, Sony Xperia XZ, Xperia Z5 Compact and Z5 premium will also get the updates by end of October or December. Android Nougat 7.1 will be available through the beta scheme and it will offer even more features.
Android Nougat 7.1 Features
The most notable feature to come in the Android Nougat 7.1 update is its support for Daydream, Google's latest VR platform and handset. While there are only a few number of handsets the Daydream will work with, it will be one of the first glimpses inside the system, Wired reported.
Also included in the Android Nougat 7.1 Preview is a Shortcut API allowing easier access to phone applications, support for circular app icons that were first seen in Google Pixel phones and live wallpapers. Quirky keyboards that let users send GIF and stickers are also available.
Night mode is another feature that will arrive in the beta program of Nougat. The feature, which will be called Night Light, removes the blue tints from the smartphones screen at night to reduce the harmful risks associated with phone radiation exposure before bedtime. With the 7.1 update, fingerprint sensors will never be the same as swiping up and down the gestures will be opt-in.
Pixel is the Best Phone For Android Nougat 7.1
Since Pixel phones are made by Google, the Android Nougat 7.1 update allows a much tighter hardware and software integration to the device, just like how well iOS is integrated with the iPhone's internals. A Sensor Hub processor in Google Pixel features tightly knit sensors including the accelerometer, gyroscope, cell, GPS, Wi-Fi connectivity and more.
