Android Nougat may have been announced last month, but its rollout to non-Google devices are just about to start. Recent news reveal that Google has already sent the Nougat firmware to different mobile phone companies.
Now, users of different Android phones are expecting to get the update anytime soon. Here are the details about the Android Nougat update that's coming to Asus, Xiaomi, and OnePlus phones.
Android Nougat Rolling Out To Asus Phones
According to an IBTimes report, Asus' Zenfone 3 devices may all get the Nougat update. This includes the Zenfone 3, Zenfone 3 Deluxe, the Ultra phablet, Laser and Max. Some of the Zenfone 2 devices may also be included in the list.
However, last year's midrange phones Zenfone 2 Selfie, Zenfone 2 Laser, and the budget Zenfone Max might not be able to get the latest Android update.
Android Nougat Rolling Out To OnePlus Phones
So far the only thing that is certain at this point is that phones with Snapdragon 810 processor may not be getting the Android Nougat update due to compatibility issues. This means that the OnePlus X and OnePlus One may be out of the list. The OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3, on the other hand, might receive the Nougat update. The OnePlus 3 could get the Nougat later this year. The OnePlus 2 could get it some time after the newer device receives it.
Android Nougat Rolling Out To Xiaomi Phones
Although Xiaomi is known for its delayed Android update release, it doesn't mean that they won't be releasing the Nougat update at all. According to a source, tech experts believe that Xiaomi will include the Xiaomi Mi 5, Mi Note, Redmi 3, Redmi 3S, Redmi Note 3, Redmi 3A, Mi Pad 2, and Redmi 2 Prime in its list of devices to get the Nougat update. However, the release date is still uncertain.
Overall, the Android Nougat is expected to start rolling out to eligible Android devices beginning October. Samsung has already been testing the platform to its S7 and S7 Edge devices. Sony has also confirmed its eligible devices and Motorola also has a bunch of possible eligible devices to get the Android Nougat. This means that Android users can now expect that the update will come to their devices one after the other pretty soon.
