Android Distributions: Nougat Volcano To Erupt Soon?

Just like every month, Android distributions are here with updated numbers for Feburary 2017. Well, this time Nougat is on roll as it has now crossed 1% mark of overall Android distrubution. Yes, it seems really minute at first but the real story is just going to be unstoppable.

Nougat being almost 6 months old now is running on 1.2% devices with 7.0 on 0.9% (which was 0.5% in January) and 7.1 sitting on 0.3%(which remained at 0.2% in January) devices in the Android world.

That number should take inspiration from the way Apple throws out the update but as always, the fragmentation and number of OEMs are the main 2 reasons that are responsible for such minute number. There's no doubt that the 1.2% contains Nexus, Pixel taking the lead and are followed by Moto, OnePlus and Samsung devices atmost but, the upcoming story will tell a different story and there's not stopping for Nougat in the coming months.

We already saw Nokia doing things with the latest and greatest and with HMD promising various Nokia devices this year, one can be sure of the fact that Nokia is and will be coming with Nougat out of the box and sales will be record breaking. Next up the benchmarks, this is the place where the leaks works the most and the Nougat has been caught unlimited times with variois OEMs testing it for their devices and that's the sign for the unstoppable growth that should be visible in Q2 of 2017.

Not to mention, Android O will be announced in May and we might even see the developer preview for the same before the Google I/O just like the company did last year with Nougat. But the fact that some OEMs always want to remain updated and grab the attention with Android versions, Nougat will be on roll now and the numbers will jump higher and higher with significant improvements.
