Shortly after the official announcement, Google also posted the Public Beta images for the Pixel/Pixel XL, Nexus Player, and Pixel C. This update promises to bring bug fixes, optimizations, and a few enhancements for carriers and users.
While most major brands in the industry still cooking the Android 7.0 or 7.1 firmware for their handset, Google is moving on and announces Android 7.1.2 Nougat. For now, the update is available as a Public Beta release that has begun to roll out to compatible devices that are enrolled in the Android Beta Program yesterday.
According to the official blog post published by Google, "Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users."
Sadly, there is no detailed list of changes to talk about at this stage, because the release date of the final version is not that close. Google also revealed that the final Android 7.1.2 release is expected to arrive "in just a couple of months" and will be first available for the Nexus and Pixel devices, as it usually happens.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
