Android Nougat is already in the hands of smartphone developers and they are now in the process of testing the platform and rolling them out to users. Although it's almost sure that all new Android phones will get the update, users are still worried about their phones if companies don't confirm their eligibility list. Luckily, a number of phone companies have already announced their list of phones that are getting the Nougat update.
Android Nougat Coming To OnePlus Phones
OnePlus held a Reddit 'Ask Me Anything' session and the company confirmed that they are already working on getting the Android Nougat to the OnePlus 3, GSM Arena reported. This means that the update will roll out to the device anytime soon. The OnePlus 2 is also expected to get the update, but it might have to wait a few more weeks or months after the OnePlus 3 gets theirs. The OnePlus X on the other hand, might not get the Android Nougat update at all. The X is powered by a Snapdragon processor that isn't compatible with the latest Android version.
Android Nougat Coming To HTC Phones
HTC is among the first companies to announce their list of Nougat eligible devices. As per IBTimes, the company will be rolling out Android Nougat to the HTC 10 around November. Other HTC devices to get the Nougat update includes HTC 10 Lifestyle, HTC One A9, and HTC One M9. The latter devices just have to wait a while longer.
Android Nougat Coming To Sony Xperia Phones
Sony has also confirmed their Nougat eligible list and it includes quite a few models. The Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia X Performance, Xperia X, Xperia XA Ultra and Xperia X are all included. Owners of the Xperia Z3 model might be a bit disappointed because the company dropped the device from their list. It turns out that the Z3 is also powered by the Snapdragon 801 processor that isn't compatible with Android Nougat.
Overall, Android phone owners can expect rollout starting October but it may extend up to 2017. Testing the platform to multiple devices can take some time, so users just need to be a little more patient in waiting for the Nougat update. What's certain right now is that the abovementioned devices are all compatible with Android Nougat and will be getting their update soon.
