When the final version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat started launching to supported Nexus and Pixel devices earlier this December, fans of Nexus 6 are early to dismiss the possibility of Nougat update coming on their phones. But looking back during the Android 7.0 update, Nexus was one of the last to receive the update too. Now, history repeats itself, Nexus 6 is again the last Nexus unit to receive the Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Google is quick to clarify the reason why Nexus 6 is receiving the Android 7.1.1 Nougat late. The company noted that a last minute bug original from the phone caused the delay of Nougat roll out to Nexus 6.
Google then issued an official statement to Android Police to address the query regarding the Nexus 6 Android 7.1.1 Nougat roll out dealy:
Unfortunately, we found a last minute bug that was specific to the Nexus 6, which has caused the delay of the 7.1.1 OTA rollout. We've since fixed the issue and will be rolling out an update in early January.

However, Gadgets360 noted that it is good to note that since Nexus 6 phones did not have an Android 7.1.0 update, this Nougat update holds a very important role for the devices.
