Android Nougat is officially launched now! Google made this upgrade available for its Nexus devices. In this article I will be putting light on core features of Android Nougat.
What is Android Nougat?
Android Nougat is the latest update of Android Operating System. Android is an operating system which is used in mobile devices as well as tablets. All the previous versions of Android OS names are starting with one of the English alphabets. Till now the Google has covered 13 English alphabet by naming it mobile operating system, which includes C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M alphabet. Now its half way to reach whole English alphabet with latest Android Nougat.
Which devices support Android Nougat?
If you also want to get this update on your Android phone then you have to buy one of the below mentioned Google android devices.
- Nexus 6P
- Nexus 5X
- Nexus 6
- Nexus 9
- Google Pixel C
- Nexus Player
- Android One
Well it is quite sad that it is not available for Nexus 5, because many of us were hoping to get Android N on their Nexus 5. But according to Google they are working on it to make it available for Nexus 5.
How long I have to wait for Android N if I don’t have Google Device?
If you have tablet or Mobile from some other manufacturer than Google, the update is likely to yield some time. The manufacturers can work out on this if their product is not more than 2 years old.
To make this Android Nougat available for the users, the manufacturers and carriers have to rework on their versions to make their user enjoy this update. And that change is going to take months. For example in case of Marshmallow, some phones still can’t get the update.
Sony surprised us quite amazingly that their Sony Xperia Z3 is going to get the developer edition of Android Nougat Software. It not clear yet that Z3 is going to get the complete upgrade. Sony has also announced that a bunch of its other phones are also going to get this upgrade in near future. These phones are listed below:
- Xperia Z3
- Xperia Z4 Tablet
- Xperia Z5
- Xperia Z5 Compact
- Xperia Z5 Premium
- Xperia X
- Xperia XA
- Xperia XA Ultra
- Xperia X Performance
