Get Your Nexus 5X, 6P Android Nougat Factory Images Here

If you haven’t heard, Google officially dropped Android 7.0 Nougat today. And like always, the first phones to get the new version of Android is the company’s vaunted Nexus lineup though Google has also given a little love to Android One as well. Anyway, if you’ve read the official announcement for Android Nougat but for some reason your phone did not get the notification for the OTA download, you can grab the factory images for Android Nougat and manually install the update.

We’ve managed to stumble on the factory images for the LG-made Nexus 5X and the Huawei-made Nexus 6P, which you can download here and here. Installing these files on your device should be uneventful, but just in case remember that manually flashing your device always involves some degree of risk. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Also note that the files are over 1GB in size, so try to find a stable WiFi connection to download these from so you don’t wipe out your data allocation for this month, mmkay?

    1. Nexus 6P can be bought wherever Huawei phones are sold.

      As for 5X, try Widget City or Lazada, because that phone was not intended to be available locally.
