T-Mobile confirms which Samsung and HTC phones are getting the Nougat update
T-Mobile has published a list of which branded devices in its lineup will be getting the Android 7.0 update. There are only two devices on the list from HTC – the HTC 10 and the One M9 – but there’s seven Samsung devices featuring all the flagships from the Galaxy S6 onwards.See also: Android 7.0 Nougat review: an Android version for Android fans
No timeline was given for when you can expect Android 7.0 by T-Mobile, but you can check out the link to see our predictions based on past OEM performance. Carriers add and additional delay to the process though, with additional certification and bloatware-addition.
For reference though, T-Mobile was the first carrier to bring Android 5.1.1 to the Galaxy S6 (in just 39 days) but the third to deliver Marshmallow to that device, taking 189 days to cross the finish line. While the update has essentially zero chance of rolling out this year, at least owners of the following devices know they’ll get it eventually:
- HTC 10
- HTC One M9
- Samsung Galaxy S6
- Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
- Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
- Samsung Galaxy S7
- Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 7
You can expect other devices including the LG G5, LG V10 and some newer Xperia devices to also make the cut, so keep an eye on T-Mobile’s support pages for that. While we know the Note 7 will get Nougat within 2-3 months and that the HTC 10 Nougat update is destined for Q4, all of the devices listed on T-Mo’s update page are still in the very first stage of being updated: ‘Manufacturer Development’, so don’t expect testing to even begin for another couple of months.
Is your T-Mo phone on the list? When do you think you’ll get Nougat?
