Google is heading towards releasing its Android January security patch. While Google Pixel phones are already confirmed to receive the update, will the flagship Motorola flagships will also be included? Read here for more details!
Google Pixel Phones Will Receive Android Security Patch in January
Although Google is unpredictable when it comes to releasing security patches, Android fans are speculating that the search giant will release its security patch in the 3rd of January. Google's Android security patch for January will have a build number NMF26U according to the support site of Verizon for Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones, Android Community reported.
Accordingly, the Android January security patch is said to come in small size because the larger one has been rolled out last December. Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones are the top priorities of Google for the security patches, thus, it is expected for them to receive the update first on the line.
On the other hand, it is not yet confirmed whether Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are going to get the January security patches of Android. However, since Nexus brand is well-loved by the netizens, update is expected to roll out for the two handsets.
Moto Z, Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus Upgrade to Android 7.1 Nougat
Now that Motorola has rolled out the Android 7 Nougat to Moto Z, Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus, netizens are expecting from the Japanese phone maker to upgrade the said handsets to Android 7.1 Nougat. Instead, the company has rolled out the second Android 7 Nougat update to Moto Z, according to Android Headlines.
Accordingly, the update with a build number NPL25.86-15 has brought fixes to Moto Z flagship such as fixes for the volume bug that often sends notification. However, the update does not include the December security patch and still carries the security patch date from November which has disappointed a lot of users.
