We’ve all been there – hopefully waiting for the new release of the brand new Android on our phones. The thing is, the Nougat release is not done simultaneously on all the devices, but in a custom way. A lot of different factors are in play for the new Nougat release. However, according to the previous updates, announcements and leaks – we can definitely rely on the past performance and post what we know so far.
We are listing the Nougat release updates for every smartphone brand.
The brand new Android Nougat has rolled out to the Nexus devices, including the Nexus 6P, 5X, 6, 9 as well as the Pixel C tablet.
The last one in the row to get the Nougat release was the Nexus 9 LTE, only because the Wi-Fi was a tough nut to crack to this device. According to some sources, the Wi-Fi needed extra work on the newest Nougat update just in order to ensure proper LTE connectivity. Let’s just hope this is not a problem with the latest update from Android, the 7.1 Pixel.
Although the brand new Note 7 has been pulled off the marketplace for its ‘explosive’ features, the Android Nougat release has been seen on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge so far. If you are having a Note 7 device, on the other hand, you better give it back to Samsung.
And yes – Samsung is a bit slow when it comes to updates, and they best proved that with the eight-month late Marshmallow release in June this year, to the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ models.
As a carrier, this ‘network’ has a whole base of phones that are under a franchise – and as such are getting a Nougat update simultaneously. The list includes HTC 10, HTC One M9, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 7(pulled off), Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
HTC is one of the better companies in terms of updates. However, the fourth quarter has been still reserved for the Nougat release on all HTC devices, just like the two from the T-Mobile list (mentioned above).
One thing is certain – the HTC Twitter team never fails to miss an announcement or prepare us for a new release.
When it comes to LG, Motorola and Sony, all three of these brands will supposedly get the update simultaneously. It is certain that some of the smartphone models will be tricky to integrate to the Nougat release – but hey, that’s what updates are for, aren’t they?
