Monday was a busy day for Google and its Nexus devices. The company pushed out Android 6.0.1 with new emojis and security patches, but users of the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X could have a bonus included with the software update. Multiple owners of those two handsets on T-Mobile’s network are reporting that the software update activated band 12 support.


A few weeks ago, T-Mobile added only the Nexus 6P to its Extended Range LTE page. Nothing was official from T-Mobile or Google. The page, however, now reflects that both the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are compatible to operate on the the carrier’s 700MHz spectrum. Users of either handset on T-Mobile’s network benefit from Extended Range LTE by getting better coverage in buildings and rural areas.
