Google releases Android 7.1.1 images for Pixel and Nexus devices

Manually update your phone with the latest security, stability and speed improvements.

If you own a recent Nexus or Pixel, Android 7.1.1 is on its way. Earlier this morning, Google dumped a slew of factory and OTA images for users who want to manually update their phones, rather than wait for them to roll out to each device.

The 240MB update consists of under-the-hood changes in the form of stability improvements and bug fixes, as well as the monthly security patch for December. The phones that are eligible for the update include:

  • Pixel
  • Pixel XL
  • Pixel C
  • Nexus 6P
  • Nexus 5X
  • Nexus 9
  • Nexus Player

You can grab the 7.1.1 factory images here and the OTA images here. If it’s your first time manually updating your phone, Google also supplies step-by-step instructions.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
