As per recent reports, the OnePlus 3 is expected to get the Android 7.0 Nougat update before the end of 2016. The OnePlus 2 is likely to get the update a month later. However, it is not confirmed whether the OnePlus X will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update or not. Impatient users can try the Nougat opt on their OnePlus X devices via CyanogenMod.
As per recent reports, the Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi Max will be the first to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update. Other eligible devices include Mi 4s, Redmi Note 3, Redmi Note 4, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi 3, Redmi 3s, Mi Note, Mi Note Pro, Mi Pad 2 and Mi 4i.
However, Xiaomi has been totally silent about the Android 7.0 Nougat update and the list of eligible devices. In fact, the company did not reveal the Android version on its latest Mi Note 2 smartphone at the launch event, today. This means the company might still be working on Android 7.0 Nougat update for its devices, and compatibility with its latest MIUI.
According to the Gadgets 360, a preview build of Android Nougat developed by Huawei was leaked online in August. This means that Huawei is working on bringing the Android 7.0 Nougat update to its smartphones. The Huawei Mate 9 is expected to come with the latest Android OS out of the box. However, the company has not officially commented about the Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 7.1 Nougat update or even the Mate 9 smartphone.
