Android 7.1.1 Nougat kernel source code is out for Moto Z and Moto Z Droid

Android Oreo is all we've been hearing about for the past week or so, but it's important to remember that virtually every phone is still on Nougat. That includes the Moto Z and its Verizon sibling, the Moto Z Droid. Both phones have just had their 7.1.1 Nougat kernel source codes released by Motorola on GitHub.

Google is finally pushing Android 7.1.1 to the Nexus 6 again

Google is finally pushing Android 7.1.1 to the Nexus 6 again

The Nexus 6 was the launch device for Android 5.0 Lollipop back in 2014, and it's been getting updates ever since. The problem, however, is not all those updates have been good. After deploying some bugged OTA updates earlier this year, Google is finally sending out Android 7.1.1 to the Nexus 6.

Lenovo says the entire Phab2 series, including the Phab2 Pro with Tango, won't get Android 7.0 Nougat

Lenovo is one of the worst Android manufacturers when it comes to updates. Motorola devices went from extremely quick updates under Google's ownership to mostly-bad support under Lenovo. The company updated its software upgrade page today, which now states that the entire existing Phab product lineup (as well as two tablets) will not receive further software updates.

Lenovo's K8 Note is official with a 5.5" FHD display, Helio X23, and stock Android

It's easy to forget here in the West that Lenovo still makes its own phones (versus relying solely on Motorola). Despite that, the Chinese company just announced its newest device, the K8 Note. It comes with some decent specs, an attractive price, and stock Android 7.1.1.

Android platform distribution for August 2017: Nougat hits 13.5% with Android O right around the corner

Android platform distribution for August 2017: Nougat hits 13.5% with Android O right around the corner

Google has updated the developer dashboards for August, and that means a new glimpse at which versions of Android are floating around out there. Like last month, Android 7.0 and 7.1 saw a small gain, and most other versions saw a small drop. That leaves Nougat on just 13.5% of devices today, and it's entirely possible Android O will arrive before another platform update does.

LG V10 on T-Mobile updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

The LG V10 was a pretty great phone when it was released. Not only did it have a secondary ticker display, but a removable battery and expandable storage too. The phone originally shipped with Android 5.1.1, but that was later updated to 6.0 Marshmallow. Now the T-Mobile LG V10 is getting a bump to 7.0.

Android platform distribution numbers for July 2017 show another modest increase for Nougat

Android platform distribution numbers for July 2017 show another modest increase for Nougat

Google has provided updated numbers on what versions of Android are out there in the world, and again Nougat is showing a respectable, though not impressive rise. Nougat has increased by 2% across both versions, which is a bit weaker than last month's 2.4% rise. Some older versions of Android saw larger than expected decreases, but Nougat has still fallen behind the pace set by Marshmallow last year.

ZenFone 3 Zoom updated to Nougat with less bloat, improved UI, Google Feed on home screen, and more

ZenFone 3 Zoom updated to Nougat with less bloat, improved UI, Google Feed on home screen, and more

The Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom came out a few months back, packing a giant battery and dual camera array. However, it was also equipped with Android 6.0.1, which is unacceptable as we get on toward the middle of 2017. I guess Asus got the memo, and it's now rolling Android 7.1.1 out to the ZenFone 3 Zoom. Not only does it bring the usual Nougat goodies, this update addresses some of the problems with ZenUI.
