As We Told You, Evan Blass Confirms Multiple Nougat Maintenance Releases
Evan Blass, popularly known as @evleaks, is back with some more information on Android Nougat.
In our post titled "How Google Plans To Unwind The Nougat Roll", we told you about Google's plans to have at least two maintenance releases for Nougat. @evleaks just confirmed the same through his Twitter handle. This is what he tweeted:
The next three quarterly maintenance releases of Android Nougat will be Android 7.1 / 7.1.1 / 7.1.2— Evan Blass (@evleaks) August 28, 2016
This information is in line with the information our source shared with us and which we further shared with you. This puts all the doubts regarding the reliability of the source to rest.
We also confirmed to you yesterday that Google will be announcing the 2016 Nexus devices Sailfish & Marlin in October. They will be coming with the next maintenance release of Android, Nougat 7.1.
With Nougat 7.1 due in October, the next quarterly release, Nougat 7.1.1, should make it's way by January. Again, we told you yesterday that Google plans to release the next maintenance release by Christmas or early next year. Following 7.1.1, Android 7.1.2 will be made available only in April 2017. We also told you yesterday that Google plans to undertake a similar course of action for Android O as it took for Nougat. Following Nougat's footsteps, the first preview builds for Nougat should surface up by March. This gives Google a sufficiently long period of 5-6 months to polish up Android O through beta testing and bug fixing throughout that period. During this period, the 7.1.2 update in April should also keep the update hunters at peace.
