The Android 7.0 Nougat update is mostly limited to Google’s Pixel and Nexus devices but it’s gradually making its way to devices from other manufacturers as well. T-Mobile has now released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for a smartphone and a tablet on its network, they happen to be the HTC 10 and the LG G Pad X 8.0. HTC already released Nougat for the unlocked variant of its 2016 flagship back in November last year.
Android 7.0 Nougat brings a host of new features and functionality to Android-powered devices. Some user interface tweaks are onboard as well. Google released the update for its Pixel and Nexus devices last year. Third-party OEMs and carriers will take a considerable amount of time in bringing the update to other devices.
HTC did say back then that carrier-branded variants of its flagship smartphone would start receiving Nougat by early 2017. T-Mobile is now the first carrier in the United States to roll out Nougat for the HTC 10. Many T-Mobile subscribers with this handset have confirmed that they have now received Nougat.
Reports also reveal that T-Mobile is rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for the LG G Pad X 8.0 as well. A wider rollout doesn’t seem to have begun yet but owners of this tablet have been successful in updating to Nougat by downloading the update using the LG Bridge desktop app.
