It is the subject of more today and that is more giving that talk now, the arrival of the new Android Nougat officially Nexus devices from August 22 that Debuts Next week on a phone with the new LG V20 series. Today we have known thanks to one of the most recognized industry insiders, that the new operating system will receive three updates in its approximate year of life, something that could lay the groundwork for these updates in the future.
The Google OS is a melting pot of versions coexisting in millions of mobile around the world, currently featuring Android 4.4 KitKat and to a lesser extent versions 5.0 Lollipop and 6.0 Marshmallow. Upgrades of these operating systems are not as homogeneous than we had expected, and this is something of what seems to have taken note in Mountain View, where would be trying to bring order to the updates of your operating system.
Nougat updates every three months
Android Nougat is updated every three months, that is what ensures Evan Blass today on his twitter account, where also detailed the denomination of these versions. You would be of versions 7.1 / 7.1.1 and 7.1.2. The great difference of these three versions with regard to what have seen previously in the system operating is that these will have a “date certain” of launch, by what not there will be surprises and there will be that wait them every three months. This means that, in the life of this version of the operating system, we will have a total of three scheduled updates.
The next three quarterly maintenance releases of Android Nougat will be Android 7.1 / 7.1.1 / 7.1.2

This is a first step so it political of updates in the system of Google have a minimum of criterion and transparency, since until now these updates not arrived with the regularity that today for example ensures Evan Blass from your tweet. One of the great virtues of Android is at the same time one of its major shortcomings, as it is compatibility with many thousands of different phones around the world.
If to this we add the difficult relationship between Google, manufacturers and operators, we can understand that the many users today to buy a mobile phone and not know for sure when they will receive the latest version of the system, or if even this will get there. Hope that these updates scheduled each three months are the start of an order to which all should contribute, not only Google, but also the manufacturers and in last stay in some cases, the operators.
