Few days back, Google unveiled the latest edition of the world's most popular operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat. It features major upgrade in smoothness, power efficiency, shortcuts, and finally have the multi-window mode by default which excites a lot of Android users globally.
|Devices that will get Android Nougat first|
Now the question is, who are the phone makers that will update their offerings with this new level of Android sweetness? We have a list.
For Google, their upcoming Nexus is expected to receive Nougat first. Then it will be followed by updating the Nexus 6P by Huawei and LG's Nexus 5X somewhere between July and September. It is also expected that Google will update some of the older Nexus phones and devices that's included with the Android One program.
The Chinese electronics giant is now a major force in the world of Android and that improved their consistency in updating their devices lately. It's a reason why it came to no surprise that their Mate series, P9 series, and etc. are expected to receive Nougat before the year ends.
The popular South Korean brand has a reputation in updating their software to the latest releases every time. So let's expect them to polish the Nougat update on the Galaxy S6, S7, and Note 5 pretty soon.
Samsung's South Korean counterpart is also notoriously great in keeping their devices up to date. As a matter of fact, they even seeded the Marshmallow update quicker than almost everyone else. It's a reason why its a no brainer that LG will try to emulate the same with the G4, V10, and G5 flagships.
Aside from the Nexus line, Lenovo's Motorola have a treaty with Google that they need to provide the latest firmware update to their devices for a minimum of 18 months. Those handsets includes the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto Z phones.
For now that's it. Most likely, late this year and starting next year, more brands will adapt to this newest of Android OS. We just have to be patient.
