[UPDATED] Android Nougat 7.0 Update. Will My Device Get It?

In March, we had briefed you about the devices which will be getting the Android N update, along with the deices which might get the update. A lot has happened in the Android world in the last four months since that post which prompted us to get back to you with a newer and an updated post regarding the devices which will get Android Nougat 7.0.

Android Nougat Preview/Beta Builds

android-n-leadAndroid 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). Other OEMs such as Huawei and Sony had also released beta Android Nougat builds for their flagship devices, P9 and the Xperia Z3 respectively.

Nexus Devices

Clearly, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C & General Mobile 4G (Android One Second Generation), Huawei P9 and Xperia Z3 will get the Android N update.
Nexus Sailfish and Marlin are yet to be released but sure to come out with Nougat!
You surely might be missing the Nexus 5 there and it's not there for a reason, the famous twitter leakster Evan Blass aka evleaks has posted and made it clear today that Android 7.o is coming out in August but not for Nexus 5 and that makes sense as we already mentioned back then that Nexus 5 has reached its update grabbing limit in November 2015. We really can't blame Google here as they have kept there promise and delivered it too in a better way because Nexus 5 has received many security patches even after November 2015. It's pretty obvious that the Nexus 4 won’t be getting the Android N upgrade.

Android One

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, MyPhone Uno, will get the Android N update. And, Lava Pixel V1, Infinix Hot 2 X510, Infinix Hot 2 X510, Bq Aquaris A4.5, Cherry Mobile One G1, i-mobile IQ II, General Mobile 4G, General Mobile 5 Plus, will also get the Android N update.Android One Second Generation and Android One Third Generation devices including Sharp Aquos 570SH will get the upgrade too.



OnePlus One, OnePlus Two and latest OnePlus Three will also get the Android N update. Considering OnePlus X is not in the race.



Heading to stock Android guys, we have got Motorola after Android One and here's the probable list - Moto G4 and Moto Z Series (Confirmed), Moto G (3rd Gen), Moto E (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.


Samsung_Logo.svgComing to the TouchWiz wizard Samsung, Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6, S6 Edge, S7, S7 Edge would definitely get the update. With the slated release of S8 next year which will bring in TouchWiz's version of Nougat, Samsung has always been known to give upgrades to it's previous two years' Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flagship devices. In our Galaxy Note 7 roundup, we had told you that the Note 7 will make it's way by the fall of this year. Both Note 7 and the S8 will be powered by Nougat, even though the Note 7 might be released with Android Marshmallow.



For HTC, HTC 10, HTC One A9, HTC One M9 and HTC One M8, HTC One M9+, HTC One E9+, HTC One E9, HTC One ME, should get Android N.


For Sony, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z3 (had Android Nougat Beta builds), 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.


Vibe P1, Vibe X3, Vibe S1 Lite, K3 Note, K4 Note, K5 Note might get the upgrade. Clouds loom over K3 Note's upgrade though.

Well, these are the most potential (some might get excluded) list of devices to get Android Nougat 7.0 from Google, no doubt the stock android users are lucky enough to get the hands on Nougat real quick, far ahead of other OEM's that believe in cutomization that has been happening till now.
