Again, the latest products are served first. Rolling out updates in a timely manner has become a strategic issue for manufacturers that know very well that this is a point on which consumers are unwilling to compromise.
- Huawei P9
- Huawei P9 More

The Chinese brand is not the fastest to deliver Android updates. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow version took a lot of time to arrive at some its devices, so we’ll see if Xiaomi will do better with Android 7.0 Nougat. We focus on the lastest premium products initially:
- Xiaomi Mi Max
- Xiaomi Mi 5
- Xiaomi Mi 4i
- Xiaomi Mi Note
The EMUI interface is quite rich in customization and adapts a new version of Android. The latest smartphones marketed by the brand have their chance to update to Android Nougat.
- Honor 7
- Honor 7 Premium
- 5X Honor
- Honor 5C
Finally we must not forget the newcomer OnePlus. This manufacturer has been slow to offer Android 6.0 Marshmallow on its older models. So, without doubt, they will be more responsive this year. Unfortunately it may be that the OnePlus One and OnePlus X do not receive this update. These devices will likely get the update –
- OnePlus 3
- OnePlus 2
That’s the first point that does not yet include all manufacturers, but we continue to look to update this summary of smartphones that will receive Android 7.0 Nougat update. If you have any official information that is missing, feel free to share them with the community by leaving a comment below.
