We have been waiting for what seems like an age to learn the official name of Android N, and HTC has confimerd that it is to be called Nougat. So there are now two other big questions waiting to be answered, and those are the release date, and even more importantly, the list of Android Nougat supported devices.
HTC Android Nougat support – The good news is, we already know that the HTC 10, One M9 and the HTC One A9 are to be supported with the next version of Android. However, they are the only company to detail support at this time.
Having said that, it’s more than likely that many of the flagship LG and Samsung handsets that have been released this year will also come with Android Nougat support. It’s a safe bet to say that the LG G5 along with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will offer Android Nougat support, as will the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 due for release next month.
Other Android handsets from the likes of Sony, Motorola, OnePlus, Honor, Xiaomi and Huawei are also likely to get the next version of Android, although that will be later down the line compared to those handsets mentioned above.
Who knows though, maybe these other handset makers finally realize that they need to offer their customers the latest Android support, and so things could finally start to change this year with Android Nougat?
