In addition to the release of the first version of Android N Developer Preview, Google the company also noted that it will be the next version. They will appear once a month, up to the final release of the new operating system, which, apparently, will be released before the end of September 2016. However, much more important for users to know when the new operating system will have their phones? The schedule updates supposedly you can see the answer to this important question.
Assumptions about the time of arrival on Android N Soup different vendors were considered Chris Carlone (Kris Carlon) in the published resource Android Authority note« What the Android N update schedule tells us about the Android 7.0 update ».
in spite of having a plan of release beta versions, it is possible that in the reality of the new trial will not always appear in strict accordance with the schedule. So it was last year with some trial software Android M.
Since the first beta version of the next Android OS has appeared earlier than usual, Google will be a couple more months to ensure that work on it.
The beta versions are only available for Nexus 6P, 5X Nexus, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player Get and Pixel C (and presumably also for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013)). Assumptions about when devices from different vendors will have to upgrade to the new operating system, based on how it was last year to upgrade to Android 6.0.
schedule the release of new versions of Android N
March – Android N Developer Preview 1 (alpha version)
April – Android N Developer Preview 2 (beta)
May – Android N Developer Preview 3 (beta)
June – Android N Developer Preview 4 (with final API and SDK)

When users get Android N?
For all devices other than the Nexus, most likely, will have to wait for the final version. But we should not forget that in the past, Sony released a trial version of Android M for some devices the Xperia, and the users of Android One might also be available for the beta version, what, however, there is no certainty.
Samsung usually in no hurry to bring another Android update to the handheld device users and should not be assumed that in this respect that a significant change when you upgrade to Android 7.0.
Given the five-month time interval between the release of Android 6.0 (September 29, 2015) and the first update to the Marshmallow in the United States, which came on the Verizon Galaxy Note 5 a March 3, 2016, Galaxy users to get the update to Android 7.0, may have to wait for the end of February or beginning of March 2017
and even in this case, the Galaxy Note 6, is likely to receive a long-awaited update first, and only then -. Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, some time later – Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge +. Exceptions may be Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge, which will appear at the beginning of 2017 and will be running Android 7.0 straight “out of the box».
LG quickly gave users of their devices updated to Marshmallow. It’s only two months between the release of Android 6.0, and give it the first of the phones LG (Sprint LG G4 was updated 21 December 2015).
Therefore, the LG has become the first vendor whose Soup received the update via the operator. After Google devices, of course. LG the V10 around the world may get an upgrade to Marshmallow in the first half of March, and LG G3 and LG G Stylo in the US have already upgraded to last year’s version of Android.
Thus, there is a possibility of LG’s phone updates LG G5 to Android 7.0 in December 2016. The successors of the LG V10 and V10 will be the following, as well as LG G3.
Users Sony Xperia may be able to install the evaluation version of Android N, as it happened last year with Android M. Of course, not all users will be installed on your host device beta version, in which the stability of no confidence. They are likely to have to wait in March 2017, when the new operating system will also for the first Soup Galaxy.
This forecast is based on past experience regarding Xperia Z5 series, Z4 Tablet and Xperia Z3 +, which received Marshmallow upgrade to five months after the release of the new operating system by Google. Of course, the first coming version of Android can get Soup new line of Xperia X, rather than Z5.
It is not surprising that the owners of devices the Moto, likely to get Android 7.0 is much earlier than other users. Moto X Pure Edition was the first update to the Marshmallow in the United States December 7, 2015, but it was unlocked version of the operating system does not slow down the software operator and “optimization».
In this way, users Moto can be the first except holders of the Nexus devices, which devices will run on Android 7.0 running back in 2016. They will have a new operating system even earlier than before will be updated LG G5.
HTC also quite quickly provides the first update to the new version of the OS. Unlocked version of the Developer Edition HTC One M9, and all variants of HTC One A9 were able to upgrade to Marshmallow in December 2015. If HTC and this year will do the same, the first update to its devices to Android 7.0 will take place less than two months after the official release of the new operating system.
except Nexus 6P, the first devaysu Huawei, running a Android Marshmallow, did not even updated. It was based on the new operating system directly “out of the box.” This, of course, talking about Huawei Mate 8, which was released in November last year, after a very short time after Google has made the update available for Nexus devices.
Honor 7 Enhanced Edition was shipped with Android OS Marshmallow December 14, 2015, followed, at the end of February this year, the update was also released for the Honor 5X and Honor 7.
Presumably, Mate is 9 on the Android 7.0-based will be released in November 2016, and an update will be arrive in February 2017.
As far as important to users as soon as possible to receive update your phone to the latest operating system?
