Optus - Software update
Nougat is coming. We’ve seen Australian carriers Vodafone and Virgin Mobile are testing it, but Optus has chimed in adding the Android 7.0 update to their list of software in testing for the Nexus 6P.

The update was added to the Optus software update page yesterday, after Canadian carrier Telus had listed the update as due to roll out to Nexus 5X and 6P handsets on their network on the 22nd of August. Optus has listed the update as due at the end of the month:
Optus - Software update

Virgin Mobile has so far listed no issues with their testing of Nougat for the Nexus 6P, but Vodafone has found an issue and referred it on to Huawei for resolution. Telstra has been the quiet carrier in this one, with the carrier listing no pending updates for the Nexus 5X which they sold exclusively on contract in Australia.

We’ll be watching carefully on Tuesday morning to see if there are any announcements overnight, hopefully we may even see some announcement of the hotly anticipated Nexus phones we’ve been seeing leak out.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
