Google had already confirmed that the rollout of stable variant of Android 7.1.1 will take place in December, but now we have a date as to when the Nougat 7.1.1 update will be rolled out. Nougat 7.1 is currently being tested out by Google for the eligible Nexus devices through the medium of Preview Builds. 

According to telecom operator Vodafone Australia, Google is looking to roll out Android 7.1.1 Nougat to the Nexus 6P on December 6. The update with build number NMF26F is 650MB in size and will also bring in December 5, 2016 security patch as well.

The site has also details how the Android 7.1.1 Nougat will be rolled out:

  • Day 1-3: 10,000 phones are selected at random to be eligible for the update, users are either alerted via FOTA Push Message or must check manually for the update

  • Day 14: All devices are eligible for the update

The details mentioned indicates that the roll out will take place in phases to Nexus 6P device, but starting December 20, the roll out will be in full throttle.

As Google branded devices always get the latest Android update first, the Nexus and Pixel devices should also get the update globally. This means the update will also be available for Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C tablet and the eligible Android One devices.

Apart from latest security patch, Android 7.1.1 Nougat will bring system App shortcuts, Google's version of Apple's 3D touch, circular app icon and more colorful keyboard among others.
