New Android 7.1.1 (NMF26Q) build for Google Pixel and Pixel XL provides additional cellular fix


Android 7.1.1 began rolling out to the Pixel and Pixel XL last Monday with a number of small fixes, as well as two new Moves. Notably, compared to previous months, there was one unified build for North America, Verizon, and Europe. A new version of 7.1.1 has just been posted to the developer site and deals with fixing a connectivity issue.

The NMF26Q build carries the same 7.1.1 version number and according to the just updated AOSP for the Pixel and Pixel XL is designated as Android 7.1.1 release 6. The single commit deals with cellular connections, particularly involving sending and receiving MMS on UK carrier O2:

“Remove spaces in front of APN types so that telephony can find APNs that can handle a particular type properly.”

Before last Monday’s update, several users had reported connection issues with Band 4 LTE on certain networks that resulted in lost or intermittent signal that required a device reboot to restore. According to Google, 7.1.1 did contain “General connectivity improvements” to fix those issues for most users.
