Android 8.0 Oreo New exciting features and release date

After all, before Nougat came along, Google only offered Developer Previews that were available for major x.0 updates only, leaving out other forms of minor or maintenance updates. Trivial as it sounds, this is the only known change in the Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS as of now. Since then, the search engine giant still has not been able to formally announce and release to complete, final version of Android 7.1.2. It's not an April fools' joke at all.

If you are running the beta variant of Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS on your device, do share the experience with fellow MobiPicker users in the comments section below.

Samsung only just started releasing the update to users with its Galaxy S7 and S7 edge devices last month, due to the company having to test the software in order to stop any bugs. In 2016, eight long years after the introduction of Android, Google has finally made a decision to take things to their own hands and enter the smartphone hardware industry.

In addition, Burke revealed that "Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bug fixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users". The "Muskie", which is a large freshwater fish found in Northern U.S., refers to the bigger version Pixel XL 2. As of now, we don't know what Android O will be eventually called.

The only thing about this April 3 release date is that it would be the first time ever that Google released such an update without a second preview build. That means a new Google Nexus 7 tablet may be the next upcoming device of the tech company.
