Major mobile phone manufacturers have promised that their flagships will be upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat, while all new smartphones that were released this winter came with version 7.1.1 out of the box. Samsung has started a Nougat beta program for owners of the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, which has ended today, so a number of handsets will get the Nougat treatment in the next days. Unfortunately, there were problems with the firmware that HTC has released for its HTC 10, so the company has halted it. Also, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users have recently installed version 7.0 though, but they reported many issues.
There are some reports from China according to which Samsung has also halted the Nougat update rollout for the Galaxy S7/S7 edge because there have been discovered bugs, and that the edge has already received a new update with the build number G9350ZCU2ZQA4. This update is said to bring stability and performance improvements, as well as a new power saving mode. We don’t have any confirmation from Samsung whether the upgrade process has been suspended only in Chin and that the decision will affect users from the rest of the countries, but at this moment, the two Galaxy flagships are getting Nougat with a size of around 215MB. The change-log includes security, bugs and stability fixes, plus a new user interface.
As for the HTC 10, the company had to halt the Nougat update rollout in Germany because of an unknown that hinders the deployment of the update. The good news is that there are no problems with the update for the HTC One A9, as the Taiwanese company has announced on its Twitter account that the rollout will start in US tonight (January 16). If you’ve received the new Nougat update, leave a comment below and tell us your opinion about how it works on your device.
In the same boat with the HTC 10 owners are the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T owners, who have received OxygenOS 4.0.1 based on Android 7.0 with many bugs and they expect version 4.0.2 to arrive in the next few days with a fix.
