The beta version has already been out, and the great news is that it isn’t buggy. You can easily go and download it right now, without worrying about bugs. However, the file size is pretty large. [Also see: Hacker Reveals The Best Thing You Can Do To Make Your Password Unhackable]
With this update, a lot of people using were expecting fingerprint gestures in the older flagships like the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5x, but Google let them down. They claimed that older flagships have some hardware constraints that restrict them from implementing this new feature.
With the new update, we’re going to get display touch improvements. When compared to Nougat 7.1.1, the Nougat 7.1.2 certainly seems more responsive to the touch. It also is faster in general, and you will get significantly a less number of stutters which is a good thing. If you need a great performance on your phone, then download this update now!

Features like shortcuts for apps, and circular-shaped icons and sensor gestures which were also there in 7.1.1 are also working great in the Android 7.1.2 which means that if you’re a developer, this is great news for you. In the future, we can expect to see some new upcoming apps that will utilize these features. [Also see: Another step to solving the mystery of Black Holes will shock you.]
