Back in November, when the device first received Android 7.0 Nougat, several users reported about a weird bootloop issue which a Google employee then claimed to be a hardware issue restricted to some handful of users.

Back in November, when the device first received Android 7.0 Nougat, several users reported about a weird bootloop issue which a Google employee then claimed to be a hardware issue restricted to some handful of users. However, soon the issue also stepped on to the cheaper Nexus 5X which is when Google came up with a statement promising a fix with Android 7.1.1 update.
However, the issue seems to persist even on the Nexus 6P running the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat. If you are not aware, Bootloop is when a device stuck at the boot screen for an infinite period of time. Further, in an attempt to fix the issue, many users on Google forums claims to have tried reflashing the official update images, flash older Nexus images apart from wiping data and cache. Further, some lucky users have managed to get their devices replaced with the refurbished ones.
Nexus 6P, which was the last offering in the Nexus line-up was one of the most successful smartphones from Google. For those who don't know, Google discontinued the Nexus lineup and brought in its new Pixel devices with premium specifications along with a premium price.
