Google has been releasing security patches for over a year now. It is highly favored by its users as the updates are geared to combat a good number of vulnerabilities that are discovered linking to Android. It is also a big deal that updates also come to devices that don't get operating system update. This is the case for most users as not all update their operating systems diligently and regularly.
It is also reported that a good number of manufacturers are trying its best to keep up with Google by pushing out updates. However, Google is known for being more proactive in releasing security patches as compared to Samsung, LG, and HTC.
As added by GSM Arena, the security update on Nexus 6P devices will carry a build number N4F26T and will be around 40MB. It is also reported to be a three-phase rollout beginning with 10,000 units randomly selected which will be getting the update until March 10. This is followed by another 10% in days four to 13 and then rest are to follow covering all of its devices. It is also important to note that all other devices of Google should be getting the Android security patch update on the 7th as well.
