The OnePlus 2 Will Not Get The Android Nougat 7.0 Update
Oneplus has confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will not officially get the Android Nougat 7.0 update. This will leave a lot of bitter taste in the mouths of OnePlus 2 owners. The device which was supposed to get software updates for at least 24 months only received one incremental update before it was abandoned by the company.
OnePlus has reportedly confirmed that Android Nougat isn’t new, and the company is happy with what they are doing with software, so it won’t be pushing official Nougat update to the OnePlus 2.
“When we built the OnePlus 2 we didn’t have the software infrastructure team in place we do now.” said OnePlus in an interview.
This is becoming a usual standard for most manufacturers who are constantly promising updates but are unable to deliver. OnePlus has, however, claimed that the company will ensure that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T do not fall under the same umbrella, ensuring updates to Android O builds when they release later this year.
For those who were impenitent lots of third part methods of getting the latest builds of Android are easily available, including installation of custom ROMs. And while it may not be the best and the most popular way, looks like owners of the OnePlus 2 will only be left with few options; ignore the lack of updates, install bootleg software, or shift phones.
