#AndroidN #Android – Android 7.0 Nougat: Here’s A List Of Phones That Will Receive The Android 7.0 OS Update : A more stable, more polished experience is the main draw of Android 7.0 Nougat. For this reason, many Android device owners are anticipating which phones will get the firmware update and when.
Tech Times has put together a list of updates on which devices will receive Android 7.0 Nougat. We’ve also thrown in some news (others are rumors at this point) surrounding the new OS.
We start the list off with the big boys that always get Android updates first: the Nexus family. The over-the-air updates began in August. The important thing to remember, though, is that Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X owners have reported problems after updating to Android 7.0.
Still, Nougat amps up the functionality of Android devices, thanks to upgrades such as the split-screen / multiwindow mode, Quick Reply (which also lets users delete, share or archive a message using the notification itself), multilingual support (which allows for easy switching between languages), and quick app switching, among others.
• Nexus 6P
• Nexus 5X
• Nexus 9
• Nexus 6
• Nexus Player
• Pixel C
• General Mobile 4G (Android One)
Before the manufacture and sale of the Galaxy Note 7 were halted worldwide, Samsung had lined up the phablet among devices that would receive Android 7.0 Nougat early on. The list now includes:
• Galaxy S7
• Galaxy S7 edge
• Galaxy Note 5
• Galaxy S6
• Galaxy S6 edge
• Galaxy S6 edge+
Samsung also has a reputation for following a slower pace, compared to rivals like LG, when switching over devices to the latest OS. Tech Times reports the Galaxy Note 4 has only recently received Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on some carriers in the U.S.
The said Android OS version could also be the last update scheduled for the Galaxy S5, understandably, because the device is about 2.5 years old now.
A sighting of the Android Nougat-operated Galaxy S7 on GFXBench suggests the OS upgrade is imminent for the flagship, although a more realistic timeline estimates the Android 7.0 Nougat will be released to the device sometime in the first quarter of 2017.
