OnePlus discontinues software support for the OnePlus 2, no Android Nougat incoming

Two months ago OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X owners kicked off a Thunderclap campaign in the hopes the Chinese company will start releasing updates for these two phones just like it does with its high-end phones, the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Unfortunately, nothing happened in the following months, and both smartphones remained stuck on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. What's worse is that there's never going to be any software changes, at least when it comes to the OnePlus 2.

OnePlus has just confirmed that it will not release new major updates to the OnePlus 2 going forward. Basically, this means that an Android 7.0 Nougat update will never arrive for the OnePlus 2.

Although OnePlus has yet to make any official statements regarding the OnePlus X, it would be safe to assume the worse.
