Last week, we reported about Android N being released to beta testers using any of the following Google’s devices: Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 and Nexus 9 4G. Android Marshmallow took its own sweet time to release, especially to non-Nexus devices. It looks like, with Android N, it is going to be different. The operating system is releasing sooner than expected. Now, the news is that the Android N release date is set for June.
If reports are to be believed, the Android N release date set in June is not for all the compatible devices. The operating system will release only on Google’s latest device, the Nexus 6P. The exact date is not out yet. Along with new Android, Nexus 6P will also get new features like multi-window, direct notifications and improved Doze. What about other Google devices?
According to Gospel Herald, Nexus 5 is not included in the Android N list. But the publication also reported that as per Tech Radar’s report, Nexus 5 will get the operating system but not as soon as 6P. Nexus 5 users will have to wait for the later part of the year for the OS. Gospel Herald has also noted down the procedure to download the software on your phone. “In order to get the Android N, users have to download the firmware on their computer first. After that, they have to send the downloaded files to their device through USB cable. In the phone, go to “Settings,” choose “About” and select “Check System Update”. If the update is available, there should be a notification. Select “Install” and wait until the Android N is installed,” writes the publication.
Rumors are hinting at Android N release date for non-Nexus devices as well. As and when the release dates are announced for other handsets, we will update you about the same.
