No Android Nougat for Nexus 6, Nexus 9 LTE yet with October images

It’s been more than a month since we saw Android Nougat burst onto the scene with updated software images for all the major devices out — from the 2015 Nexuses to the Nexus 9 and the Pixel C. Heck, even the Nexus Player’s still being supported.

But what about that damn Nexus 6? It’s still good for a major update and the 2014 smartphone was also supported throughout the Android Beta Program. Why hasn’t it appeared yet?

OTA and factory image updates for every modern device except for the LTE-enabled Nexus 9 — yes, the Wi-Fi version got it in just fine. Both the Nexus 6 and did get the Security Bulletin patches, but that was just through Marshmallow.

So, when will the two Nexuses stand to get Nougat? We’ll have to keep watching.
