Soon after receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update last month, the Nexus 6P is facing issues for the second time. People complained about the battery failures after updating their device back in November. Now, some people are complaining about the new bootloop issue after updating their Nexus 6P to Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Some people also complained about the bootloop issue after receiving their first Nougat update and developer preview of Android 7.0 Nougat. Commenting on the issue, a Google employee said that it is not a software issue and nothing has to be done with the Android update. It is strictly a hardware problem, said spokesperson from Google.
It is to be noticed that the few other Nexus devices including Nexus 5X were also facing the same bootloop problem after receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
In bootloop, a device is stuck on the startup screen with Google logo flashing on the screen and then restarts to show the same screen. The phone do not move ahead of the startup screen and restarts repeatedly in bootloop.
Some people also report that they have tried re-flashing images, flashing older Nexus images, and even wiping cache, but nothing has happened and their phone has become a soft brick. However, some have received refurbished replacement devices and now they are refraining to update their devices to newer Android version.
Apart from the full metal built, Nexus 6P features a 5.7-inch QHD display with 1440×2560 pixel of resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 4. On photography front, it sports a 12.3-megapixel primary camera with a f/2.0 aperture, 4K and slow motion (240fps) video recording, meanwhile, the 8-megapixel front-facing camera comes with HDR+ and a f/2.4 aperture.
