Nexus 6 Finally Gets the Android 7.1.1 it Deserves

By Gary Cutlack on at

Google has finally got its act together regarding the older Motorola-made Nexus 6 phone and released Android 7.1.1 for the device, in a move that'll make a small pocket of enthusiasts happy for as long as it takes to install.

The Nexus 6 has been on the 7.0 version of Google's code for some time, so this won't be a gargantuan leap in terms of what's on offer. The sad news is that the update will see users miss out on the 1080p/60fps video recording features and the Night Light screen darkening system newer Nexus users get, because either the phones are too old to handle it or no one could be bothered building equivalents for Motorola's hardware.

Google's hosting the files itself, if you have one of the older Moto Nexus phones and are able enough to get through the manual adb reboot recovery process. [Slashgear]
