Android Security March 2017 update goes out to Pixel, Nexus

This will inevitably lead to the Google Pixel 2, a smartphone that will be 2017's flagship from the tech giant while continuing to make its mark on the premium, high end, or flagship category.

Recent reports are saying that Vodafone will release another latest security patch for the Google Nexus 6P this week together with other Google gadgets. Google's flagship device will face competition from the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S8, Apple's iPhone 8 and LG's G6. 9to5Google first spotted this feature on the latest beta version 6.14 of the Google app running on a Pixel, but it most likely also works on the stable version (6.13) as well.

OnePlus has captured the hearts of consumers who're looking for a thrilling android experience but not at a premium cost, and Google doesn't plan to disrupt that market as Osterloh maintains that the upcoming Pixel devices will "stay premium".

"There's an annual rhythm in the industry". If yes, let us know if you notice any significant changes in the user interface. "You can count on a successor this year, even if you don't hear a date from me now", he said at Mobile World Congress 2017. Apparently, Google is testing some Pixel 2 prototypes with Snapdragon 83X chips and others with Intel chipsets. A report released in January claimed that Google was also working on another budget smartphone code-named, the Pixel 2B. Both the phones will come with top-notch specifications and will serve the premium segment buyers. This is good news since lately, Google seems to be focusing more and more on its newer Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. The fans of the phone are looking forward to a very special phone. It is also not surprising that Google is releasing this monthly security patches as it is always been doing for nearly a year now.

Google Nexus 7 display screen is also rumored to offer 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and will also contain a 3,000mAh battery. It means that gadgets like Nexus 5X, Pixel C tablets, Pixel and Pixel XL phones will be getting the same security patch this month.

This security patch can be installed directly on any Pixel and most Nexus devices.
