Nexus users never got the ‘Restart’ or ‘Reboot’ button on their smartphones. This is just because stock Android never had the ‘Reboot’ or ‘Restart’ button. We have seen almost all the third party manufacturers providing the ‘Reboot’ and many more buttona in the power menu. But Google Nexus smartphones came only with ‘Power off’ button in the power menu.
Now there is an image which shows two options in the power menu. These options are ‘Power off’ and ‘Restart’ . So this indicates that the upcoming Android Nougat 7.1 will come with the ‘Restart’ option. It is a much required feature in the stock Android. It is also said that the leaked image is of an early build of Android Nougat 7.1 . So this doesn’t make sure that the final version of Android Nougat 7.1 will ship with the ‘Restart’ button in the power menu.
