Ah, sorry, indeed, I can't even read my own typo...

The latest update for the Pixel and supported Nexus family is Android 7.1.2, originally announced on January 31, which actually brings a bit more than you might expect for an incremental update. The Pixels miss out on the most exciting stuff, mostly because they have it already, gaining just the “powered by Android” logo on the boot splash screen and the March 5 security patch. Google also improved the finger swipe gesture for the Pixels and Bluetooth connectivity issues.

I have an old Samsung Note 2. The last upgrade was ~2013 when they upgraded to 4.4.2. It is heavily customized. They tried to offer 5.0 but it failed testing and they followed the Golden rule:

"If at first you don't succeed - Give up!"
