OnePlus 3 users, it's time to celebrate. The Android Nougat update will soon get to your smartphones. The latest Android version has been released more than a couple of months ago but it is yet to reach people's devices. As of now, only Google-owned phones have received the update. Other brands such as OnePlus are yet to rollout the new version to their users.
OnePlus Android Nougat Update
OnePlus has already confirmed a few months back that the OnePlus 3 will indeed get an update. However, just like the other Android brands, it wasn't very clear as to when exactly the update will be rolling out. One thing's for sure though, the OnePlus X won't be getting the Android Nougat update since it is powered by Snapdragon 801 which isn't compatible with the new Android version. The OnePlus 2 should be getting Android Nougat, but there isn't a solid timeframe for this phone's update yet. Right now, it's just the OnePlus 3 that is said to get the new Nougat update.
OnePlus 3 Getting The Android Nougat Update
As per an Engadget report, the beta version of Android Nougat for OnePlus 3 will be rolled out this month. The final version of the said update will then roll out before the year ends. This should be good news for OnePlus 3 users especially since not a lot of Android phones have already received the Nougat update.
Nevertheless, it's also worth noting that there's another OnePlus phone that is rumored to be released soon, GSM Arena reported. The OnePlus 3T is expected to be launched in a few days' time running Android Nougat from the box. So if you want a Nougat-running OnePlus phone right now, you either have to buy the OnePlus 3 and update it soon or wait for the Nougat-running OnePlus 3T to be launched.
