When is your phone getting Android 7.0 Nougat? We asked every manufacturer

...

After more than 5 months in beta, Google has officially rolled out the latest version of the Android mobile operating system — Android 7.0 Nougat.

The update is rolling out to the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices, as well as the General Mobile 4G, an Android One smartphone. Any other devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program, such as the Sony Xperia Z3, will also get the update.

Ultimately, that’s a relatively small number of smartphones and tablets compared to the billion-plus Android devices that are active around the world. Android is notorious for its fragmentation — even if Google pushes an update, manufacturers and carriers have to test and roll it out separately, and the process usually takes months. It’s why several handsets like BlackBerry’s Priv and the OnePlus 2 received the Android Marshmallow update more than 6 months after Marshmallow launched.

A lot of smartphone manufacturers haven’t explicitly named a date or time range for when we can expect a Nougat update. Few have mentioned specific devices that will certainly be getting it, and of course, a carrier-branded device will also slow these updates event further. Still, we will continue to update this article as we learn more. In the meantime, here’s which devices are expected to get Android 7.0 Nougat and when we expect to see the update arrive.

Google’s Nexus devices are almost always the first smartphones and tablets to receive version updates first, and that hasn’t changed with Nougat. The updates should already be available to install for:

Just head over to the About Phone section in your device’s Settings app. Tap on System updates and then Check for update. You should get a notification saying there’s an update ready to install. Older Nexus devices like the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 (2013) are not receiving the Nougat update.

Google’s surprise tablet from 2015, the Pixel C, is also receiving the update as its an Android device straight from Google. Android One devices, budget devices running stock Android available only in developing markets, aren’t mentioned except for General Mobile’s 4G handset, which should also be receiving the update.

The search giant seems to have forgotten about Android One, considering its website for the program claims 2014’s Android 5.1 Lollipop to be the “latest and fastest” version of Android.
