Google’s Android OS Team has finalized the name of the next version of the operating system, that’s Nougat. Currently, it arrives in just 4-5 smartphones as a full and final update. It won’t come on all the Android, it only come to some phones. So, if you are buying an Android smartphone today and want Android Nougat in your smartphone, then must check our this list of smartphone, which has Android Nougat.
Smartphones, which confirmed, have Android Nougat:
Huawei Nexus 6P: This is the flagship Android phone right now. It is also an official Google phone and it will definitely get the Android Nougat update, possibly with days of the public launch of the new operating system.
LG Nexus 5X: This is also a current generation Nexus phone and hence will definitely get Nougat update, possibly at the same time when Nexus 6P gets it.
HTC 10, HTC One A9 and HTC One M9: These are high-end HTC phones and they will get the Android Nougat. That much has been confirmed by HTC. But the chances are the updates will be delayed. HTC may take even a few months after the public launch of Android Nougat before it brings the updates to these three phones. Also, HTC 10 will most likely be the first HTC phone to get it.
Other Possible Smartphones:
Moto G4 Plus: Motorola, which uses almost unmodified version of Android in its phones, and since 2013 has an impeccable record of bringing Android updates is yet to officially confirm which of its phones will get Nougat. But it is almost certain that the Moto G4 Plus will be one of these phones.
Moto G4: If Moto G4 Plus is getting the update, the Moto G4 will also get it. The update are likely to come within weeks of the Nougat launch.
Moto Z phones: These are not yet available but by the time Nougat comes, they will be in the market. The Moto Z phones will also get the Nougat.
Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge: No official confirmation, but just like HTC Samsung will bring Nogat update to the current generation flagship Galaxy phones. Although, just like HTC the company may take a month after Nougat’s public launch to bring it to its phones.
Galaxy Note 6: In the coming months, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 6 — or is it going to be called the Note 7 — possibly with Marshmallow because the Nougat may not launch by then. But after that when Nougat update is available, expect Samsung to bring it to the latest Note as soon as it.
LG G5: To match HTC and Samsung, LG is also almost sure to bring the Nougat to the flagship G5 as soon as it can.
LG Nexus 5: Old but still gold and that is why Google may give it one last update in the form of Nougat.
Moto X Force & Moto X Style: Powerful phones and expensive. Motorola may not like to leave in lurch users of these phones.
Moto X Play & Moto G Turbo: Phones with fairly fast hardware, we think these two will also get one.
