Android 7.1 will, perhaps reboot

Surprisingly, but real, the Android 7.0 Nougat stock version does not allow a device to reboot. But with the next update, this should be possible.

Sometimes it useful to restart its smartphone, for various reasons, but some stock Android versions, that is to say without changing a manufacturer, do not allow it . And this is the case of Android 7.0 Nougat who simply turns off his device, he must reignite to perform a reboot. It’s pretty strange as positioning especially since some manufacturers modify Android to add the restart function.

Arrival of Android 7.1

But the development version of Android 7.1, currently in beta, could afford. Indeed, a screenshot assigned Nougat Android 7.1 seems to show the possibility of stopping or restarting the device.

This new version of Android Nougat should happen with future smartphones in the Mountain View company. Indeed, it is on October 4th that Google will hold a conference during which smartphones Pixel Pixel XL and should be disclosed. And these smartphones should also be equipped with the latest version of Android, the 7.1. In any case that suggests who has seen the Pixel XL by its services and which showed the version of Android used by the smartphone. And it was well Android 7.1.

By cons, for the moment, this opportunity is only available in the “Developer options” to be activated in the “Settings” of the unit and tapping repeatedly on the “Build Number” in ” About phone “. Suffice to say that it is not certain that the restart option is very present in the final version of Android 7.1.
