Android O Update To Roll Out For Pixel & Nexus Phones This August, Says Report

Jun 07, 2017 08:27 AM EDT


Google has already released two Android O update for Pixel and Nexus devices, but the final version of the new OS will arrive until later this summer, the latest report claims. According to a new report, Android O will roll out to Pixel smartphone in August.

If this report is true, Google will roll out a final update of Android O sooner than expected, considering they regularly do it in fall. This information comes from David Ruddock and claims that the Android O update will land in the first or second week of August, as reported by Android Headlines.

The latest update will be pushed OTA (over the air) to Google Pixel handsets. The all compatible Nexus devices are expected to get the Android O update around the same time, as reported by Phone Arena.

Even though Ruddock claims that the information comes from a reliable source, it's worth noting that these release dates sometimes change due to unexpected issues. That being said, it remains to be seen how accurate the information is and when exactly the official Android O update will be available for Google Pixel and Nexus devices.

The source also mentions that this will be an OTA (over-the-air) update for Pixel phone and that all compatible Google Pixel phones are going to get the update at the same time. Now, it's quite possible that the new Pixel phones will not arrive until October probably. 

Google is planning to add a lot of new features to Android O via this update, including the picture-in-picture option, more options for the notification shade, much better task managing in the background that will keep rogue apps at bay and stop them from draining your battery, and so on. As always, readers are recommended to take these reports with a pinch of salt until more they verify them from more reliable sources.
