Google's Darling Nexus 6P Receives Two Extra Months of Security Patches [Okay, Nexus 5X too]

Android “Check for Updates” button now actually gets latest version

We don't know why, but Google has just extended support for the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X by increasing the security patch lifespan by two months, pushing it back from September 2018 to November 2018. Meanwhile, the larger Pixel model will have the design elements of the LG G6 Android smartphone, this is for the reason that the LG company will manufacture the handset. Considering that Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are ready to be unveiled during next month, Google is trying to cut off its ties with the Nexus brand.

While it is bad news that the two phones have a single camera, unlike the Nokia 8, the Galaxy Note 8 or the LG G6 - phones that will compete in stores - the fact is that Google is clinging to the software improvements to bring us the portrait mode experience.

What Google is trying to imply is that time has come for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P owners to start looking for a new smartphone. Originally, we heard that both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL would get slimmed down bezels to match the competitive 2017 landscape. In the Google Camera app, a new feature can focus on a person in frame and then blur out the background to produce a live portrait.

Reports from the sources have also released a new music recognition feature. Unlike that third-party app, the second-generation Pixel phones will listen for music being played and automatically fire up its Music Recognition feature on the lock screen. This would be a feature that you can disable but is to your liking. Several leaks may have already outed this feature long ago.

Google's new smartphones will most likely feature a wireless charging technology, which is based on the fact that the search engine giant has just been linked to the Wireless Power Consortium. Both Pixel 2 smartphones will carry the new Android O software, too.

While the previous leaks have also pointed out about the tentative pricing of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, these new insights give more details about these devices.
