Google to release Android Nougat this week

Android 7.0

Google is expected to start rolling out Android Nougat, which is the latest version of the mobile operating system, this week only. We reported a few weeks ago that Google is planning to roll out Android Nougat by the month of August. It is reported that the Nexus phones will be the first one to get the final version of this mobile OS.

Telus, a Canadian network, has accidentally leaked the details of Google’s plans and revealed on its website that last year’s LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P will get Android 7.0 OS from 22nd August. This confirms the plans of the search giant to release the OS by the end of this quarter.

Android Nougat

Currently, a trial version of Android 7.0 is available for the users to test. This was followed by a beefed up edition of the Google’s I/O conference back in May this year. This is the first time the wider Android community is able to download the finished version of this new version of Android.

The reports reveal that the new Android Nougat adds a number of new features such as split screen application viewing, improved battery, better notification replies and re-designed home screen. There are also reports that the Samsung and LG devices will not get Android Nougat until the late 2016.
