For some time we hear about little progress on the release to the market the latest update for Android operating system. Just a few smartphone got its crisp version of Android 7.0 Nougat. It turns out that this list has just has been expanded by Huawei P9 and Mate 8 models. These are the flagship models, so it was expected that sooner or later Android Nougat will be released on these mobiles. Users will enjoy the fact that they are already behind.
Earlier this month, Huawei officially released information on planned updates smartphones to the latest Android Nougat.
It was then revealed that the update to Android 7.0 is planned in the first quarter of next year. As it turned out, this update appeared so far in China. It appears then, that the updates are ahead of schedule. Rumors in network claim that they have obtained the B352 compilation which was released for Huawei P9, and the B552 versions for Mate 8. Unfortunately, I did not find any details about Huawei P9 Plus. It looks that this smartphone is still waiting for its update in the queue.
People are angry about slow progress of Android Nougat release.
However, you should remember that a lot of people still have not received even Android Marshmallow update. The practice shows that only owners of flagship models may be sure that they will receive the latest update. Unfortunately it is not guaranteed when Android Nougat update will be released. This is the reason why Android market is so fragmented and developers have to think about compatibility of their application with different operating system versions. Currently, owners of Huawei Mate 8 and P9 models have their national holiday and may test new Android Nougat features.
