Official: No Android 7.0 Nougat updates for Lenovo's Phab2 series


It looks like Lenovo is done with updates for the Phab2 series, even though some of the smartphones were launched less than a year ago. For some reason, the Chinese company has decided that the Phab2 Pro, the first widely-available Tango-enable smartphone, is not worth the trouble and should remain on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Along with the Phab2 Pro, four other smartphones will not receive any other major Android OS updates: Lenovo Phab, Phab Plus, Phab2, and Phab2 Plus. The first two will remain on Android 5.0 Lollipop, while the other two will not be updated beyond Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

On related news, two Lenovo tablets that were launched on the market last year have been denied Android 7.0 Nougat updates as well: Lenovo Tab3 7 Essential and Tab3 10 Business. The former will remain stuck on Android 5.0 Lollipop, whereas the latter will stay on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Now that the Chinese handset maker basically dropped support for the entire Phab series, is there any reason to buy any of the new Phab smartphones that Lenovo might plan to launch in the future?
