The Android 7.0 was formally launched on August 22nd this year. Quite a few bugs have been fixed leading to a seamless and more enjoyable customer experience. The Nougat promises an improved battery life with more customization options available to make your phone your own. The most striking difference is the multi-window accessibility which allows you to open multiple apps at the same time and the direct reply feature which allows users to directly reply to notifications without opening the app. Apart from the above, there are no other major changes in the new update.
Nexus has been one of the first smartphones to receive the update. So the question of when would the other devices receive the update is definitely on the mind of consumers. Motorola would be among the first, after Nexus, mainly because it does not add many additional features to the software. Samsung users might have to wait for a while as the company takes time in this respect.
HTC promises its customers a 90day period for new software updates and thus we can expect the company to make it available around end November this year. Huawei is quicker than the rest. Thus, the smartphone maker is expected to make the option available by the end of the year launching the Mate 9 with the Android 7.0 pre-installed.
Xiaomi went through a few problems with the previous Marshmallow update, thus it is difficult to say when we can expect the company to release the latest version. If the company has learned from its mistakes, then it could be sometime around the end of this year or else, sometime beginning next year.
With software updates becoming a regular feature, you might find that your existing smartphone has become slower and is no longer compatible with the new update.
In this case, it is always a good idea to buy a new phone and sell your existing one. An excellent platform to sell old phones is SellBack where you simply select the device you wish to sell and receive a resale value instantly. In addition a person visits your premises and collects the device from you in exchange of cash.
Sounds unreal? You have to try it to believe it. Especially, with Diwali around the corner, this is just the perfect time to clean your house of old devices and earn cash hassle-free.
