Many handset manufactures have recently confirmed that their newer devices will be getting the latest OS from Google – Android 7.0 Nougat. Some have specified that they are in the process of testing the platform for their devices, while other are already through with that phase and will soon roll out the upgrade.
However, users should note that if their devices are not on the company’s list for upgrading to Nougat, there’s a very small chance for that to happen. In the meantime, the devices that will certainly get the upgrade very soon are the OnePlus 3 and 2, the HTC 10, A9 and M9 and Sony’s many Xperia devices like the Xperia Z5, X Performance, X, XA Ultra, Z3+.
OnePlus representatives revealed that they are working on an Android Nougat platform for the OnePlus 3 in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ online session on reddit. Supposedly, the OnePlus 2 will also get the upgrade a few months after is rolls out to OnePlus 3. Unfortunately for the owners of the OnePlus X, it appears that the device will not be upgrading to Android Nougat because it has a Snapdragon processor that is not compatible with the OS.
According to IBTimes, HTC will start rolling out the upgrade for HTC 10 sometime in November, because it’s the latest device to come from this manufacturer. The other older HTC models will have to wait a while longer until they get the upgrade, maybe even a few months.
While many of Sony’s Xperia devices will upgrade gradually to the Android Nougat, starting with the newest model, users should know that the Xperia Z3 handset will not get the new OS because it also has a Snapdragon processor that is not compatible with it.
All in all, most of the owners of the latest handsets from many important manufacturers should get the upgrade as soon as October.
