Ever since the first Android 7.0 Nougat developer preview showed up earlier than usual, speculations started growing that the final and stable version of the OS will also be released earlier.
Well, even though Google has not mentioned a date when this OS will be released, a new software update schedule leaked from Canada’s Telus seems to show the details of when Android 7.0 Nougat will actually be here. Of course, we known all along that Android Nougat will be unveiled this month, but there was no specific date as to when this was meant to happen.
The same details can also be seen from LG Korea, cementing earlier rumors that indeed the OS will be released earlier than usual. But as expected, only Nexus-branded devices, namely Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, have been listed for the update, which is set to commence on August 22.
In fact, Telus’ update is the most convincing since it also lists a series of other devices to receive other software updates. This is the norm for the Canadian carrier, but it further warns that the dates are subject to change, so, don’t get your hopes too high. As for the LG leak, the details reveal an August 22 date, which is when the LG G5 OS preview experience is set to begin, according to Google Translate.
Just recently, we received news of Sony adding the Xperia X Performance to the current Xperia Beta Program, which has had the Xperia Z3 flagship for quite some time now. Furthermore, with LG being the maker of the Nexus 5X, it won’t be a surprise to see a bunch of other LG-made handsets receiving Android 7.0 Nougat sooner than expected.
As per the latest leaks, it seems fair to assume that Android 7.0 Nougat updates will start hitting Google Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and other compatible Nexus devices, including the Pixel C, as from this coming Monday. But as noted by Telus’, changes to this date are possible, so, be ready for anything.
