Android 7.0 Nougat Update On Some Phones - Is Your Phone Included?
Android users are anticipating a more polished experience for the version of Android 7.0 Nougat. What phones will upgrade first and when will you yours?
Upgrades on Android Nougat 7.0 includes the split-screen or multi-window mode, Quick Reply (which also lets users delete, share or archive a message using the notification itself), multilingual support (which allows for easy switching between languages), and quick app switching, among others. According to Tech Times here is a list of updates on which devices will
We start the list off with phones that always get Android updates first: the Nexus family. The important thing to remember, though, is that Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X owners have reported problems after updating to Android 7.0.
Though there are reported problems, still, android users with phones that run Nougat 7.0 are very thankful for the updates. Here are the phones to upgrade in Android Nougat:
- Nexus 6P
- Nexus 5X
- Nexus 9
- Nexus 6
- Pixel C
- General Mobile 4G (Android One)
Samsung also has a respect for following a slower pace when switching devices to the latest OS, compared to its rivals. Tech Times reports the Galaxy Note 4 has only recently received Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on some carriers in the U.S. The said Android OS version could also be the last update scheduled for the Galaxy S5. This is maybe because the device is more that 2 years old now.
Before the manufacture and sale of the Galaxy Note 7 were halted worldwide, Samsung had lined up the phablet among devices that would receive Android 7.0 Nougat early on. Here are the phones to upgrade in Android Nougat:
- Galaxy S7
- Galaxy S7 edge
- Galaxy Note 5
- Galaxy S6
- Galaxy S6 edge
- Galaxy S6 edge+
Although LG is currently remaining silent on its Android Nougat plans, we're confident that at least a couple of its latest handsets will be on the latest version of Android. Here are the phones to upgrade in Android Nougat:
- LG V20
- LG V10
- LG G5
- LG G3
Sony is another manufacturer that's still keeping its Android Nougat release plans close to its chest. However, a leaked roadmap in September purports that the following devices from Sony will receive Android 7.0 Nougat:
- Xperia X Performance - October
- Xperia XZ - October
- Xperia X - November
- Xperia X Compact - November
- Xperia Z5 - December
- Xperia Z3+ - December
- Xperia Z4 Tablet - December
- Xperia XA - early 2017
- Xperia Ultra - early 2017
Even Motorola has the longest list of devices primed for Android 7.0 Nougat, Moto G (2015) and Moto E3 Power (2016), their new phone offers, are not included. It might be because it might skip Android 7.0 and head straight for an Android 7.1 update but nothing is solid at this point. Updates to Motorola devices:
- Moto G Plus (4th Gen)
- Moto G Play (4th Gen)
- Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen)
- Moto X Style
- Moto X Play
- Moto X-Force
- Moto Z
- Moto Z-Droid
- Moto Z Force Droid
- Moto Z Play
- Moto Z Play Droid
- Droid Maxx 2
- Droid Turbo 2
HTC Bolt, HTC's new phone, will be the first HTC device to operate on Android 7.0 Nougat. The devices below are expected to receive the OS update in the last quarter of 2016:
- HTC 10
- HTC One M10
- HTC One M9
- HTC One A9
Although they could not provide a timeline for the release. OnePlus 3 could receive the OS upgrade in the first quarter of 2017 at the latest, followed by the OnePlus 2 about a couple of months later.
