Google Nexus 6P Gets New Safety And Security Update To Combat Hackers

The Nexus 6P hasn't been a very satisfying smartphone when it comes to having the latest Android Nougat OS update installed. So far, people have seen several issues such as random shutdowns, battery failures, and in-car Bluetooth problems -- which are very strange occurrences, taking into consideration that the Nexus 6P is considered as a "pure" Android device that was commissioned by Google to Huawei for manufacturing.

Android Security Update Hits Nexus 6P

However, in recent reports, the latest Android March Security update has just arrived and it is now available for the Nexus 6P.  This is something that a lot of 6P owners would like to see run without having any problems or glitches after installation. According to The Gospel Herald, Google first introduced the Android March Security Update to its range of Nexus and Pixel smartphones earlier this month.

However, success hasn't been a common theme for the Nexus lineup in terms of updates. While the Nexus 5X did successfully pick up the update, the Nexus 6P is still remained stuck on an older version. But now, every 6P owner can now heave a sigh of relief, since all Nexus 6P devices will now be picking up the Android March Security Update, which is some time later this week.

Other Considerations To Remember

However, according to Android Police, Nexus 6P owners need to take note that the phone's Android March Security Update will be introduced via the OTA, or over the air method, and it ought to arrive in the form of the N4F26T build number. There are more than 60 security problems and several issues that are fixed in this particular patch.

It is also good to know that the entire update weighs only a mere 39MB, which makes it incredibly light and easily downloadable. Even making use of your smartphone's data plan in downloading the update should not cause too much of a harm to the monthly quota.
