The Nexus 5X Will Stay on Android Oreo

The December Nexus 5X Android 8.1 update could be the device's last update from Google. 

Google originally said it planned to stop security updates for the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X in November, 2018 so the December release is a bit of a surprise. 

Unfortunately, the Nexus 5X won't get the new Android 9.0 Pie operating system. Google says there are no guaranteed Android version updates for the Nexus 6P and the company's Android Pie release confirms those plans. 

The Android Pie update is currently live for all Pixel models except for the Pixel C tablet.

If software support is important to you you might want to start hunting around for a new phone. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are still great and the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are worth a look as well.

    Too many of Google’s base apps have been crippled on multiple devices. The need to NOT perform any quality assurance has been the new imperative. On nexus 6p I can no longer answer a call IT IS A PHONE have been forced to install a 3rd party app to use my phone as a phone BRILLIANT.
    On my yoga book, chrome has been replaced because of unbearable predictive text issues.
    I have never owned an apple product, but the dominant player in the market seems determined to push me to a different world.

    The update seems to not be taking on my Nexus 5X which just got a new Motherboard due to Bootlooping. It has updated itself at least 6 times to day and keeps coming back.
