Google Nexus end-of-life dates listed

Surely getting a Google Nexus device is a sure guarantee to getting the latest and greatest version of Android, but ever since the launch of the old Galaxy Nexus back in the day, we know that won’t last for ever. Google doesn’t really guarantee that all its legacy Nexus devices will receive the latest version for ever, and today we learn just how close you are to being pushed out.

Google’s support website has now begun listing the dates for end-of-life of its Nexus devices, and the picture is not really pretty. Yes, you’ll be entitled to at least three years of security patches, curtesy of the whole Stage fright debacle, but when it comes to getting future versions like Android O or P, well the list will tell you more:

– Nexus 5X: September 2017
– Nexus 6P: September 2017
– Nexus 9: October 2016
– Nexus 5: October 2015
– Nexus 6: October 2016
– Nexus 7 (2013): July 2015
– Nexus 10: November 2014

Those of you rocking a Nexus 6 might want to start listing it on eBay.
