According to recent news, Google is expected to publicly roll out Android Nougat 7.0 next month, while the final Android Nougat Developer Preview was already released earlier this month. However, it seems that a Nexus 6P user received an internal Android Nougat build somehow.
A post on Reddit (via) reveals that user removed his Nexus 6P smartphone from the Android Beta Program, because of battery issues. This would have meant that the user was set to receive a back update to Marshmallow.
Instead, he receive a confidential internal OTA with an updated build of Android Nougat 7.0. The Android Nougat Developer Preview 5 had the version number NPD90G and this internal version is NRD90M.
The user took screenshots which reveal that the OTA was confidential and internal only. The images also show that New York Cheesecake was the working codename for Nougat. The internal build had a size of 49.5MB and the user didn’t see many major changes since it was a smaller update.
The Android N description that accompanies the OTA update was also slightly different compared to the beta program, which signals that Google might be releasing the public version soon.
Earlier today, we reported that Google will be rolling outnext month to Nexus supported devices, specifically Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus 9G, Nexus Player, Pixel C, or General Mobile 4G (Android One) devices. Two new Nexus smartphones, Sailfish and Marlin are also expected to be released in the same period.
