OnePlus One may get Android 7.0 Nougat update
Android 7.0 Nougat has already reached several smartphones including last year’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, however, most Android phones are yet to taste the latest Android version. According to latest reports, OnePlus One may be among the first phones with customized Android to get the Nougat update. The first OnePlus phone was recently spotted on Geekbench running Android 7.0 Nougat.
Back in September, OnePlus team revealed that it’s “actively working” on the Oxygen update based on Android 7.0 Nougat for the OnePlus 3. If the leaked Geekbench report is to be believed, the first OnePlus customers may get a surprise. OnePlus had promised software updates for a maximum of 24 months and the OnePlus One is already two and a half years old.
Another reason why Android Nougat on OnePlus One comes as a surprise is Snapdragon 801. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor, which powers OnePlus One, is not compatible with Android Nougat because it does not support Vulcan graphics API.
