LineageOS has released its latest update on its most current developments for the third-party ROM alternative and as part of that announcement has confirmed support for a number of new devices, as well as the other major changes that have taken place since April 2. In terms of the devices that have now gained support for LineageOS, there are two HTC One M9 models now supported, the GSM version of the phone and the Verizon-specific HTC One M9 variant. In addition, two LeEco devices have also now gained support, the international variant of the LeEco Le 2 and the LeEco Le Pro3. Other devices mentioned include the LG L90 and Sprint’s LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. As well as two Yu smartphones, the Yu Yuphoria and the Yu Yureka.
All of these devices are specifically gaining their support for version 14.1 of LineageOS, which the announcement also details has recently been bumped up to Android 7.1.2. So if you are running any of these devices (or any device that has support for LineageOS 14.1), then you should now expect all the trappings of Android 7.1.2 to be included. The announcement also notes the latest changes including a number of bug fixes. With the most notable one being a fix related to Extra Tiles, which reportedly resulted in an unintentional increase in battery usage on devices. Although, if you are the owner of the Nextbit Robin, then the same announcement seems to be detailing that 14.1 support for the Robin has been temporarily pulled, as there seems to be some “major bugs” specific to the device which need to be worked out.
While LineageOS is still technically a new ROM (in spite of its rather experienced and grounded roots), it is one which has been working hard since its initial release to build out its third-party device support. An effort which does seem to be working as statistics released back on March 20 suggested that LineageOS was now running on more than one million devices. As to be expected, that number has likely already increased since last month and with these new devices being added, will likely increase further going forward.
