T-Mobile shares list of Samsung and HTC phones that will get Android 7.0 Nougat updates


While Android 7.0 Nougat is already available for select Nexus models, owners of other devices will seemingly have to wait at least a few more months before getting the Nougat update. And it's going to be worse for devices bought from carriers, since testing software updates usually takes longer in this case. Nevertheless, if you're a T-Mobile USA user, you should know that the carrier today shared a list of handsets that will definitely get Android 7.0 Nougat, though it's not clear exactly when.

The list currently includes two phones made by HTC, and seven made by Samsung:

  • 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
It doesn't look like any of these T-Mobile handsets will be updated in the near future, as they're all in the first stage of the upgrade process: Manufacturer Development. Basically, this means that "T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update", but testing has not yet begun.

The list is almost certainly not a definitive one, and we're confident that other devices (like the LG V10 and LG G5) will be added to it soon.

Previously, HTC announced that its unlocked HTC 10 should be updated to Nougat in the fourth quarter of the year (sometime between October and December), with the unlocked One M9 to follow later. As for Samsung, the company expects the Galaxy Note 7 to get Nougat in 2 to 3 months from now, but there's no timeline for the rest of its devices.

I'm glad to hear this. I was worried because I was one of the few 12 people to get the HTC 10 on T-mobile before they got rid of it LOL.

Definitely not Xiaomi, take your pick between the G5 or OnePlus. The OP is miles cheaper, has better build quality, 64GB by default and longer battery life. The LG is more expensive, but has a best in class camera, a better display, faster software updates and a replaceable battery and MICROSD.

Xiao mi mi3 was upgraded to marshmallow. I don't think any company other than apple updates a phone for so long. Updated independent of carriers

G5, G4 and Flex 2 will be updated for sure. The question is when.
