Android N Update. Will My Device Get It?




Android N Preview builds are currently available for the following devices: Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C & General Mobile 4G (Android One 2nd Generation).

Clearly, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C & General Mobile 4G (Android One), will get the Android N update.

Coming on to the Nexus 5, Google supports every device that it releases for a minimum period of 2 years. Since the Nexus 5 was available from November 2013, the minimum support period ended in November 2015. Nexus 5 received the Android Marshmallow update because it was still within the 2 year support period back in September 2015. Even though the minimum support period has now come to an end, Google is still providing the Nexus 5 users with the monthly security updates for Android Marshmallow, even after the support period has ended. Thanks to the fact that Android One 2nd Gen, will be getting the Android N update (as it is getting the Android N Preview Builds) & that the Nexus 5 boasts of greater specifications in terms of hardware than the Android One 2nd Gen, there is definitely a glimmer of hope. Even last year, when it was speculated that the Nexus 4 might get the Android Marshmallow update, because it had the minimum specifications required to run Marshmallow, Nexus 4 did not receive the update, while the Android N First Gen did get the update, even though both the Nexus 4 and Android One First Gen had similar hardware specifications.

Obviously, the Nexus 4 won't be getting the Android N upgrade.

Android One First Gen phones will also be getting the Android N update as will the Android One 2nd Gen users. This is because of a report on unbox.ph in which Lonson Alejandrino, Product Manager for Cherry Mobile confirmed that both the Cherry Mobile One (Android One First Gen) and Cherry Mobile One G1 (AAndroid One Second Gen) will receive the N update when it’s released later this year. (Report Link: http://www.unbox.ph/gadget/both-cherry-mobile-android-one-phones-guaranteed-to-get-android-n/). Also, Android N will be available earlier this year and thus, the Android One First Gen devices will get the N upgrade within the minimum support period of September 2014 to September 2016.

Thus, Symphony Roar A50, Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V, Spice Dream UNO, Mito Impact, Evercoss One X, Nexian Journey One, Cherry Mobile One, QMobile A1, Cherry Mobile One, MyPhone Uno, will get the Android N update. And, SoC: Mediatek MT6582, Lava Pixel V1, Infinix Hot 2 X510, Infinix Hot 2 X510, Bq Aquaris A4.5, SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, Cherry Mobile One G1, i-mobile IQ II, General Mobile 4G, SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 617, General Mobile 5 Plus, will also get the Android N update.

OnePlus One and OnePlus Two will also get the Android N update.

From Samsung's perspective, Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6, S6 Edge, S7, S7 Edge should also get the update. Please note that this is only a probable list.

For Motorola, Moto G (3rd Gen), Moto E (2nd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto X Turbo, should get the update. Moto G (2nd Gen), Moto X (2nd Gen) may not receive the update. Please note that this is only a probable list.

For Sony, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia M5, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia C4, should get the update. Please note that this is only a probable list.

For HTC, HTC One M9 and HTC One M8, HTC One M9+, HTC One E9+, HTC One E9, HTC One ME, should get Android N. Please note that this is only a probable list.
