For the Android fans, we have some good news! The seventh version, called Nougat, is on its way! This new update comes in the shape of a patch and it will certainly extend your phone’s life. Having a decent size, it brings lots of improvements and updates. Multitasking, a new messaging app, Daydream VR support and also improved Doze skills. It indeed represents a refresh of this OS, and later this year you will receive it for your phone too.
However, the exact date when Android Nougat will start rolling out is not known. Generally, manufacturers and networks modify the software in order to be suitable for their systems and skins. This means that if you are not running a stock version of Android, you will have to wait more in order to receive the update. Thankfully, there are some schedules to see which phones will enjoy the software and when.
Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, 6 and 9 will get some preferential treatment from Android, as always. Their owners will be the first ones to test out the new version of Android. Nexus 5 though might have to expect more in order to be updated, since this particular version has been omitted from the official launch. Another phone that stands in the first line when it comes to this is the Google Pixel C, the tablet owned by the company.
Though we don’t know the exact date for HTC either, it is known that the first devices that will get the roll out will be HTC 10, HTC One A9 and One M9. If you’re using a Samsung device, we have some bad news though: hold no hope that you can test out the Nougat until 2017.
