Nexus 6P Gets Performance Improvements In The Latest Update

March 10, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Google has, for the first time ever, introduced two Nexus smartphones in September last year. The company has unleashed the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P alongside the new version of Android, 6.0 Marshmallow. These two phones have been around for quite some time now, and Google has actually rolled out the developer preview of the upcoming Android N OS, and if you’re interested, you can either flash the developer preview variant of Android N on your Nexus 5X / 6P handset, or you can join Google’s beta program and get the update OTA.

We’re not here to talk about Android N though, we’ve covered this launch extensively on the site, and I’m sure more content will be coming soon. That being said, a new update (MHC19I) has started rolling out to the Nexus 6P. The Nexus 6P actually follows Nexus 5X’s lead, considering the LG-made Nexus received the update quite recently as well. Looking at the changelog, these two updates are more or less the same, but coded for different devices, of course. According to the info provided by a Googler on Reddit, this update brings better device performance, do not disturb (DND) next alarm disappearing issue, and a number of carrier-specific bug fixes. On top of all that, Google has improved connectivity in general on the handset, which essentially means they’ve added yet another layer of polish here. Now, this update is also expected to come with March security patches, even though that part was not mentioned in the changelog.

The Nexus 6P is Google’s flagship phablet. This handset is made out of metal, and it features a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display, along with 3GB of RAM and a number of internal storage variants. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core SoC, and packs in a 3,450mAh non-removable battery. The 12.3-megapixel snapper is located on the back of this phone, and is considered to be one of the best smartphone cameras at the moment. That’s pretty much it, if you’re interested in getting the Nexus 6P ‘MHC19I’ update, you can either wait for it to come your way on its own (OTA), or you can head over to Google’s Dev site, download it, and manually flash it.
