The adjustment version of Android 7.0 Nougat has an unusual numbering scheme – ITbukva (press release)

The adjustment version of  Android 7.0 Nougat has an unusual numbering  scheme From the very beginning of Android, Google took a rather unconventional numbering scheme for new versions of the system. Basic version numbers were reserved for major changes in the user interface of the system and greater nebula significant change in the operating system, according to ITbukva.com.

But, it appears that Google is implementing a more traditional and predictable numbering with the adjustment version of Android 7.0 Nougat .

According to the extraordinary insider Evans Blass, the Google decided to use the 7.1.x release of quarterly numbers to update the correction version, which, as confirmed already on the way. Unfortunately, if Blass rights, even in these versions of the strange numbering scheme will be used. He claims that the first version of the adjustment for Nougat will be Android 7.1, but the second and third – Android 7.1.1 and 7.1.2, respectively

This is how you can see, does not give a lot of sense from the point of view of traditional numbering schemes, but gives at least some Android logic because, as Google downloads security updates.

Traditional 7.x update will be the first major update that will bring bug fixes and update performance and the like, in this case the patches will 7.xx accident safety. However, Google has a monthly security updates, which are recorded separately, so the use of this method will allow Google to release first a correction version (7.1), with important functions (rumored to possibly start module Nexus and / or Google Assistant is), and then bring small bug fixes to the version 7.1.x and will still have the monthly security updates. Then leave Android 7.2 for a different kind of merger with Android O, without disturbing the normal numbering Google Android, which will keep Android 8.0 for the big UI changes.

It is obvious that the whole scheme is still quite complicated, but perhaps Google is really trying to make it more understandable. We’ll have to wait and see.
