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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
