OnePlus 2 is Currently Testing Android Nougat OS ahead of Official Release

OnePlus 2

OnePlus 2 might have received the best successors yet in the shape of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, however, this 2015 flagship killer is still a very popular phone out there.

The phone came around the same year that the likes of Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Sony Xperia Z5, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 were also unveiled. While the two Google phones and the Xperia Z5 series have already been updated to the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and Android 7.0 Nougat respectively, we’ve only seen flashes of the same as far as Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 are concerned (although these Sammy devices are getting Android 7.0 Nougat). However, for the OnePlus 2, the story has been a little bit worse, with the company actually remaining silent on when exactly owners of the phone can expect to receive the Nougat treat.

The good side of the story is that latest reports suggest that OnePlus 2 is currently being tested for the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. The phone has made a stop on Geekbench with v7.1.1 of Android Nougat running the show, but this doesn’t give us any dates as to when the OTA update will start rolling out.

Looking at the specs of OnePlus 2, there’s no doubt that the phone qualifies for the Nougat treat. These specs include the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC that powers the likes Google Nexus 6P and Sony Xperia Z5, two phones that have already received the update to Nougat. As for the RAM, you get 4GB, which only matches the amount used on the Galaxy Note 5. However, the entry-level variant has the same 3GB RAM as what you find on the Nexus 6P.

Note that this Geekbench listing doesn’t guarantee that an update to Android Nougat on OnePlus 2 is here. But if the report is to be believed, users of this phone will soon be able to download and install the latest Nougat OS on this device in the coming weeks, probably somewhere in April or May. We’ll keep tabs on the matter and update you with the latest developments. Stay tuned!
