Many of you have probably heard about the new and improved operating system from Google, Android 7.0 Nougat, and you’re most likely curious when you’re going to get it, especially if you own the latest handset from any key manufacturer.
The OS is already rolling out gradually to several new generation Nexus devices and most of the manufacturer are preparing to either launch or test the Android Nougat platform for their devices.
Here are the manufactures whose devices will receive the upgrade very soon: HTC, Huawei, LG, Samsung, Sony, Xiaomi and OnePlus.
The HTC 10, One A9 and One M9 will be getting the upgrade very soon as the company has already confirmed that they have received the software. Supposedly they will upgrade to Nougat no later than the end of this year.
Huawei’s Mate 9 is rumored to start upgrading as soon as December 2016 and in the following months it may very well come to older models like the Huawei P9, P8, Mate 8 and many others.
LG will also be upgrading its newer devices to Nougat and those include the LG G5, G4, V10 and many other older models.
If you own any of the latest handsets made by these manufacturers, then rest assured that you will be upgrading to Nougat. However, if you don’t want to wait for the upgrade and you have money to spare or you’re looking for a brand new handset, you can always buy the latest handset from LG – the LG V20 – which was launched four days ago and it comes with Android Nougat straight out of the box.
The LG V20 is actually the first non- Nexus Android based smartphone that is running the new OS fully. It’s even running it fully before it has completely settled into the Nexus devices.
