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.
Huawei has announced some highly impressive sales figures for the Huawei P9, with nine millions units having been sold. The figure is particularly striking as the smartphone was only released at the end of April 2016.
Huawei’s impressive growth is continuing, with the Chinese company drawing level for the number two spot when it comes to global smartphone market share.
