Android 7.1 Nougat now available in Developer Preview format for some Nexus devices, specifically the Nexus 6 p, Nexus 5 X and also Tablet Pixel C. At the moment, the rest of compatible terminals will have to wait to be able to take the glove to this installment, but the list of terminals compatible with Android 7.1 has just expanded, and it has done so with a smartphone that we can consider more than veteran because it was launched five years ago.
The lucky has been the Galaxy Nexus, a terminal that came in the hand of Google and Samsung 2011 and that now can be upgraded to Android 7.1 Nougat, something unthinkable through official channels and that once again It is possible thanks to the developer community.
If you already have a Galaxy Nexus can out of the drawer because the guys at Unlegacy-Android Project, MWisBest and Ziyan, have managed to install Android 7.1 Nougat in this device, and according to the first views works pretty well for a team as old.
For now there have been some bugs with GPS and mobile network connectivity, but in general the ROM is relatively stable, always keeping in mind that we are talking about a team which was released in 2011 and whose latest official update was Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, It is soon.
In his day, the Galaxy Nexus manufactured by Samsung was one of the coolest smartphones of the panorama, but currently its technical profile has been outdated and could be considered even a team of input range, although with nuances typical of a range media as the 4.65 inches Super AMOLED HD display. Cameras were not as notable, and with a 5 megapixel main sensor and one secondary 1.3 megapixel nor we could make miracles.
The third member of the Nexus range mounted a TI OMAP 4460 dual core processor at 1.2 GHz and 1 GB of RAM. It is a configuration which today would be very short up to on a single computer, but that was more than sufficient, as they also were 16 GB capacity without MicroSD – although here we must not go too far, Apple offered this same option last year with the iPhone 6s – in 2011. All powered by a battery of just 1750 mAh.
