At a time when tech enthusiasts around the world are waiting for the next version of Google’s mobile operating system, dubbed Android 7.0 Nougat, Google is still mum about exactly when the new firmware update will be released. However, a Canadian carrier has something to share about the rollout, which is also expected to include security updates.
According to the latest updates to Rogers’ firmware update schedule, the official Android 7.0 Nougat update is “coming soon” to HTC Nexus 9 tablet. Although the schedule didn’t specify any date, a Phone Arena report said that the update could be made available “in a month, or maybe two.” Apart from the Nexus 9, the Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and Nexus 5 are also expected to be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat at about the same time, the report added.
“Making sure these dates are accurate is our top priority. Sometimes, things change beyond our control so all dates listed are subject to change. Thank you for understanding,” Rogers’ disclaimer read.
In addition to Nougat and Nexus 9, the firmware update schedule also provided a “coming soon” timeframe for the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Huawei Kiwi GR5, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6. However, the Sony M5 Aqua is said to receive the same firmware update on July 29.
HTC already confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat is on its way to at least three of its popular smartphones, including the HTC 10, One M9, and One A9. However, the company didn’t say when the firmware would be released.
