OnePlus 2 Will Not Get The Android Nougat Update
Although almost two generations old, owners of the OnePlus 2 have been holding out that they might one day receive an official update to Android 7.0 Nougat. Previously, OnePlus confirmed that the firmware update would be delivered for all the OnePlus 2 users but will never actually gave a timeframe for its exact arrival. Not until today because the company already validates that the OnePlus 2 will never receive an authentic update to Nougat.
According to the interview by Android Authority, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer confirmed that it would never release an official Android Nougat update to the all the OnePlus 2 mobile device. When asked the reason behind this decision, the company said that “when we built the OnePlus 2 we didn’t have the software infrastructure team in place we do now.”
This announcement shouldn’t actually be a big deal and a real surprise to anyone, especially to users of the OnePlus 2. As reported by 9to5Google, the customer service of OnePlus "has been telling customers this for a little while.” In fact, a post in May on XDA-Developers proves that the tech firm has been informing customers about the OnePlus 2’s end-of-life situation. However, only when specifically asked.
For some, this is a good news, but for the majority, especially the owners of the OnePlus 2, this is a bad news. On the other hand, thankfully, OnePlus handsets are easy to be modified. And if it happens that a specific user wishes to install a custom ROM on his/her OnePlus smartphone, all he/she has to do is find the right forum. Read it and learn from it.
