Updated Sept 09, 2017 – Steps To Downgrade Google Pixel From Android Oreo To Android Nougat (Android 8.0 to Android 7.1.1): Google parted away with releasing the Nexus lineup of smartphones which were released every year till 2015. Last year, Google started a new lineup known as the Pixel phones. This was marketed as manufactured and designed by Google exclusively. However, we have known that the Google Pixel was manufactured by HTC. This smartphone came out with its elder brother, the Google Pixel XL. Both the smartphones had all the flagship specifications that are expected from a premium smartphone but the smartphone became so popular because of its camera which is considered to be the best on any smartphone in 2016.

As far as the specifications of the Google Pixel are concerned, the smartphone had a 5.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at a PPI of 441 pixels per inch and the smartphone was launched in October 2016. As far as the processing power of the smartphone is concerned, the Google Pixel was released with 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Google Pixel packs a 12.3-megapixel primary camera on the rear and an 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

Other than that, the Google Pixel also had a 2770mAh non-removable battery which would power the device for a whole day. However, as we have known with the Google Nexus lineup as well, the smartphone was launched with the latest version of Android which in this case is Android 7.1 Nougat. Now that Android 8.0 Oreo has been released, the smartphones have already received the update to Android Oreo. However, if you are facing some issues with the latest version of Android and want to get back to the previous version of Android which is known as downgrading then below are steps to get back to Android 7.1.2 on your Google Pixel smartphone
