There is some bad news today for OnePlus 2 owners who had been hoping to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The company has now confirmed that there’s not going to be a OnePlus 2 Nougat update release even though it has previously promised the exact same thing. The release has been ruled out despite the fact that Android devices are covered for major updates for two years and that OnePlus itself claimed that the OnePlus 2 would receive an update to Nougat.
“When we built the OnePlus 2 we didn’t have the software infrastructure team in place we do now,” the company has said while confirming that it’s not going to release Android 7.0 Nougat for the OnePlus 2 despite claims to the contrary.
What the company has confirmed so far is that it’s going to release Android O for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T in the coming weeks. It’s yet to provide a confirmed release date for the update headed to those devices, though. The upcoming handset, OnePlus 5, is going to come with Nougat installed straight out of the box.
This is obviously not going to sit well with OnePlus 2 users who had been given hope that they would receive the Nougat update. If they want to have a taste of Google’s latest software update on a OnePlus device, they now have to purchase a OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T.
