Google decides to give the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X two more months of security updates

Vlad, 25 September 2017

Google's software update policy for its Nexus and Pixel devices states it provides two years of feature updates and three years of security updates from when a product is first brought to market.

So far, the company's page that reveals when support is expected to end listed the Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X as getting their last security patches in September 2018. Now though, without any announcement on the matter, the same page says they will get two additional months of security updates - until November 2018, to be precise.

It's unclear why this happened, but it will certainly be good news to those who still cling to the last two Nexuses. On the other hand, you really shouldn't expect to see any more big feature updates for the duo after Android 8.0 Oreo which started rolling out last month.
