Android Nougat 7.0 Coming this August, Internal Testing Build get leaked

It’s looking more and more likely that Android Nougat 7.0 will hit stable release status in the coming month, with the usually reliable Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks) claiming that Nougat will land “next month”along with the Aug. 5 Android security patch.

Android Nougat 7.0 Coming this August, Internal Testing Build get leaked

There is nothing new as we all know that Google releasing monthly update to Nougat Developer Previews over the past 5 months. Last release hit on July 18, and it is expected to be the stable Nougat release on supported Nexus devices along with open-source code drop to Android Open Source Project.

Another Android variant is normally nearly taken after by new Nexus devices. There’s no word on when the reputed HTC-manufactured Nexuses may arrive, yet given that Nougat is running in front of Google’s past yearly calendar, it’s most likely safe to expect them easily before the ordinary October dispatch window.

As we welcome new Nexus phones to the mix, it could be curtains for the Nexus 5, as Blass also says the three-year-old phone won’t be getting an official update to Nougat.

Bottom line: We’re getting closer to the final release of Android 7.0, and that means new Nexus phones probably aren’t far behind. So strap in — the usually quiet month of August is about to get a whole lot busier.
