Android 7.0 was codenamed “N” since the beginning of this year. But just a few weeks ago, Google announced that the next release of Android is Nougat. Google gave developers very early access to 7.0, and it allowed for a full period of beta testing.
Today, Google is starting to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat to several Nexus devices. These are of course the Android smartphones and tablets that run a clean version of the software. Plus they pack the latest technology inside.
Nougat is rolling out to the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Pixel C devices as an over-the-air update. While the update is starting to seed today, it can take a few weeks to arrive. The only non-Nexus device receiving the update is the General Mobile 4G, which was part of the Android One program.
Regarding other devices, it will most likely be some time before they get Android 7.0. It all depends on when the hardware manufacturers decide to build the update. However, LG has said that the upcoming V20 should ship with Nougat.
