Huawei reveals which of its models will be updated to Android 7.0; two high-end phones are left out
The rollout will continue a few weeks later with the Huawei P9 Plus, the Huawei P9 lite, the Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus. You might have noticed that a pair of last year's high-end models do not appear on the list. Unless things change, or this list turns out not to be complete, the Huawei P8 and the Huawei Mate S are not going to receive Android 7.0.
Launched April 1st 2015, the P8 is powered by a home-grown Kirin 935 chipset with an octa-core 2GHz CPU. It features 3GB of RAM with 32GB/64GB/128GB of native storage on board. The Mate S was launched September 15th of 2015 with the Kirin 935 chipset under the hood. 32GB/64GB of internal storage is available.
At first blush, we don't see any reason why these two models shouldn't be updated. A similarly spec'd Motorola DROID Turbo 2 with an octa-core 2GHz CPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of native storage will reportedly be updated to Android 7.0.
If you own the Huawei P8 or Huawei Mate S, you might be feeling a little left out right now. Huawei hasn't given any reason for the pair's omission from the list and perhaps there is a chance that this can be reversed.
