Finally Android Nougat 7.0 Update is released

Finally Android Nougat 7.0 Update is released for smartphones and tablets

Android Nougat 7.0 is official. Now, the OnePlus 3 Nougat beta could be coming this month. Hit the links below to jump straight to those stories or scroll down find out whether your device will receive the Android 7.0 and/or 7.1 Nougat update.

When will the Android 7.0 Nougat update be released?

Android 7.0 Nougat launched on August 22, 2016. Google made the announcement on its dedicated blog, which confirmed all of Nougat’s new features, as well as the rumor that the LG V20 would be the first device to run the new software.

Android Nougat update for Samsung

November 10: Despite only just beginning to start its Nougat beta program for the S7 and S7 Edge, a leaked version of the beta software has found its way online. If you are feeling brave enough to get started with installing software that might well crash your phone, the G930FXXU1ZPK4 is for the S7, and the G935FXXU1ZPK4 for the S7 Edge.

We’re still in the early days in Android Nougat, and manufacturers are reluctant to make concrete promises at any given time. However, normally, Samsung maintains a two-year update window on devices, so it’s a safe bet to assume that the Android Nougat will be making its way to all Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7 variants.

Many Samsung devices are scheduled to get the the Nougat update soon, possibly in December. Now, T-Mobile posted that it’s “preparing to deliver a software update” for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. We’ll let you know when we hear from other carriers.

The Galaxy S5 is a less safe bet. The Galaxy S4 has not seen an update to Marshmallow, so Android Nougat may be the S5’s turn to fall behind.

Android Nougat update for Google

The Android Nougat update for Nexus devices has been released, but it could take some time for the update to hit your specific device. Google has posted some of the factory images online, so you can get it loaded up already if you’d prefer to flash it yourself.

Android Nougat update for HTC

HTC has taken steps to streamline its development process in an attempt to ensure more timely Android updates. So our hopes are high that by the time the new years rolls around, HTC 2016 devices will bear Android 7.0 Nougat inside them.

The day after Android Nougat was detailed at Google I/O, HTC announced that the new firmware would be making its way to the HTC 10, One A9 and One M9. The announcement also made it clear that more devices would receive the update, but this confirmation would come later in the year, “when Google ships Android Nougat to manufacturers.”

Android Nougat update for LG

LG has started rolling out Nougat for the LG G5 in South Korea, with other parts of Asia and the US set to get it in the coming weeks, the company says. Users that are due an upgrade will get an on-screen notification when the new OS is ready to download.

LG was one of the first manufacturers to produce the Marshmallow update last year, bringing its LG G4 up-to-date with Android 6.0 as early as October in some regions. This year, LG is going one step further: the LG V20 will be the first smartphone to run Android Nougat.

Android Nougat update for Huawei / Honor

Huawei is generally quick to make promises and slow to fulfill them. The company’s track record of rolling out updates is, shall we say, not excellent. You can expect its latest flagships to receive an update to Android Nougat, but whether that will be before Android O is released is the real question.
