Google's aging line of Nexus-branded smartphones are being left out of the Android P party. The company this week released Android P Developer Preview 1 to the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL handsets. Noticeably absent from the list? The 2015-era Nexus 6P and 5X. Google confirmed to Ars Technica that the 6P and 5X will not be updated to Android P. Each has received two years worth of system updates, which was the limit under the original terms of sale, though both phones will continue to receive security updates through November 2018. Google changed the terms with its Pixel devices, which will receive system and security updates for three years. The Pixel C tablet has also been left of the Android P update list. The Android P developer preview is truly for developers only. Google will launch the public beta program in the spring, with the full release to follow during the third quarter. Major new features of Android P include improved messaging notifications, support for displays cutouts, and more.
