First non-Google smartphone to get update REVEALED

It's also worth mentioning that Google released the OTA files as well, so you have many options at your disposal to upgrade your Nexus 6 to Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Elsewhere, the move to Android 7.1.1 Nougat will ensure the camera app has a faster startup, as well as the latest security patches, first rolled out by Google in December 2016. Well, that doesn't matter anymore since Google has just released the factory image and OTA files needed for Nexus 6 to be updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The former flagship Nexus phone now joins the elite list of devices that are running Android 7.1.1 Nougat alongside the Google Pixel phones, the older Nexus 5X and 6P, and the Pixel C tablet. According to Android Police, the update is now available for Nexus 6 users as both a full system image and an over-the-air update.

The new build brings with it bug fixes as well as a January security patch with almost 50 security updates. Of course, we didn't exactly know when that time would come, but we now know that it's right now as the official factory and OTA images for the update have been posted and are available for download and installation on your device. The update will not, however, include Google Assistant and the Pixel's Night Light. Alternatively, they can wait until the update officially releases in a week or so.
