Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X No aptX Update

Everyone most likely knows by now that Google are releasing the brand new version of its popular mobile operating system Android this fall. We’re talking about Android O, now known as Android 8.0.0 formally as well. Android O promises to be a revolutionary OS for Android device due to the many new features it brings, but most importantly to the fact that will end OS rollout fragmentation once and for all.

Starting this fall, Android O and future versions of it will reach devices across the world more or less during the same time frame. This is something that Apple have been doing with iOS for a while now, but in Google’s defense, there are way less iOS devices out there than there are those that run Android. Android has a clear monopoly on the OS market, holding more than 80% of shares.

But that’s not what we’re here to discuss today. The most recent Android O news has to do with aptX, the future (and brand new) Bluetooth streaming feature that Android O will bring to devices that will support it. Well, apparently not to all of them though, because the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X were just announced as unfit to support aptX. This has been a tough month for the Nexus line of phones and, even though it’s Google produced, its mother company seems to give it the short end of the stick when it comes to Android O. We wonder why.

This might tie in with far more gloomy rumors according to which Google are planning to drop the Nexus franchise bit by bit and focus on the Pixel and the Pixel alone. We don’t know if that’s true, because the company hasn’t made any official statement about it, but it would be a pity if it were.
