Android 7.0 Nougat was released by Google as an OTA update back in August and new generation Android-based device owners are still waiting for their handset to upgrade to it. Here is an overview of some of the manufacturers and their devices which have been confirmed for the upgrade to the latest Android operating system.
Naturally, the first devices to start receiving the upgrade were the new gen Nexus ones like Nexus 6, 6P, 5X, 9 Player and the Pixel C. However, there’s no word so far about the upgrade coming to the Nexus 5.
There’s even talk about a new update for the Nougat OS that goes by the version number 7.1 which will feature the Daydream VR support. The latter will be launched in November.
In HTC’s case, we know for sure that the upgrade is coming in the fourth quarter of 2016 and that it will come to the HTC 10, One A9 and One M9. There’s nothing official regarding the One M8 so far, though.
Most of the Motorola made handsets will upgrade to Android Nougat starting with the Moto Z and Moto G4.
Many of Samsung’s devices will be getting the upgrade starting with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge but the company’s hasn’t given a specific date for the roll-out yet.
Following the handset launch trend it has established so far, Huawei is expected to launch this year’s Mate 9 with Android Nougat straight out of the box. The other devices however, will probably upgrade to it in a couple of months.
Based on the six months it took for Blackberry to upgrade to Marshmallow, we may assume that the same will happen in the case of Android Nougat.
Android Nougat comes with many positively-reviewed features such as the multi-window option, the improved Doze option and the in-notification reply function.
