Nexus 6P Nougat update has been halted while Huawei works on solution

Vodafone Australia has confirmed that the Nougat update for the Nexus 6P has been delayed, stating on its support page: “An issue is affecting rollout of this software update and we are working with Huawei to resolve ASAP.”

This was spotted by Android Police after the publication noted that 7.0 OTA (over-the-air) updates and factory images were missing for several devices on Google’s developer site, including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE.

The issue mentioned by Vodafone Australia is likely related to battery drain, a subject that many in the Android community have complained about following the initial release.

Since Google has not publicly commented on this issue, leaving it to come from the somewhat unlikely news source of an Australian telecom, there is no specific information to be found on when the updates will return, or why the updates for the 6 and 9 LTE are also currently unavailable on Google’s Nexus OTA page. This post will be updated as new information becomes available.
