Honor 7

Huawei may abandon Honor 7 with no Nougat update

Even though the smartphone was only released in July 2015, it appears as if the Honor 7 will not receive an update to the latest version of Android. The news comes as Honor’s parent company Huawei announced its plans for rolling out Android Nougat updates to existing devices.

Handsets like the Huawei P9 and Huawei Nova will receive updates to Android Nougat early next year, but it is being reported that the Honor 7 will miss out on the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.

The news is likely to give potential purchasers of 2016 devices like the Honor 8 pause for thought.
