When will your phone get Android Nougat?
It’s the eternal question that we all face when it’s time for a new version of Android: when will I get it?
We have the answer! Well, sort of. Android is
a fragmented mess customized by many different smartphone makers, so finding out when exactly you’ll get Nougat depends on a lot of different factors.
However, a lot can be learned from previous updates as well as announcements and leaks (see this research from Computerworld for more about past update performance). Here’s what we know so far. We’ll continually update once more details about Nougat updates become official.
If you want to be among the first to get Android Nougat, you chose wisely by going with a Nexus device. If fact, if you have a Nexus 6P, 5X, 6, 9, Player, or Pixel C tablet you can get the final Android Nougat developer preview right now.
