First Android N Developer Preview factory images are now available

The first Android N factory images are now available for select Nexus devices. While the Developer Preview is not meant to be run on daily driver phones, that won't stop people from trying it out on personal devices. Right now, you can download the factory images for some of the latest Nexus phones and tablets. Google has posted links for:

  • Nexus 5X
  • Nexus 6
  • Nexus 6P
  • Nexus 9
  • Nexus 9G
  • Nexus Player
  • Pixel C

If you own one of these, and are looking to install the Developer Preview, you can grab the files here. Google will also offer a way to install these over-the-air, but that is not yet available. Not sure how to update yourself? Be sure to check out our guide on how to manually update your Nexus device for more information.
