HTC U11 To Get Bluetooth 5.0 With Android O Update

Tyler Lee August 14, 2017

Recently there were reports to suggest that the HTC U11 could be getting an update to its firmware that would give the phone Bluetooth 5.0 capabilities. It turns out the rumors were true after all because HTC has since confirmed this themselves in a post on their website, where they promised that Bluetooth 5.0 functionality would be coming to the phone.

However according to HTC’s website, it seems that Bluetooth 5.0 will only be arriving as part of the update to Android 8.0 O. At the moment there is no confirmation as to when Android O will be released, or for that matter, when will HTC push the update out to its phones like the HTC U11.

For all we know it could be by the end of the year, or maybe even early 2018. According to HTC, “When Android O, the next version of the Android OS becomes available, HTC U11 owners all over the world will be able to enjoy the benefits of Bluetooth 5.0. We’re excited to be able to bring this announcement to HTC U11 customers around the world as we strive to continuously improve our customers’ mobile experience—we believe Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility helps do that.”

However it is still good news all the same and we guess we’ll just have to wait and see when Android O for the HTC U11 will be released.

Samsung Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7 And Galaxy C9 Pro Nougat Update Enters Testing

Adnan Farooqui August 13, 2017


Samsung has now started rolling out the much-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for its mid-range and premium mid-range smartphones. It’s now testing the updates for devices that have yet to receive the jump to Nougat. The Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7, and Galaxy C9 Pro are three of the devices on that list. According to a new report, Samsung has now started testing the Nougat firmware update for the Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7, and Galaxy C9 Pro.

Samsung first released the Galaxy C series in China only. All three aforementioned handsets were limited to the Chinese market. That has changed over the past few months as Samsung has released the Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7, and Galaxy C9 Pro in more markets across the globe.

The Android 7.0 update for these devices will bring everything that’s included as part of the Nougat firmware update. This includes more granular app permissions, enhanced notifications, new set of emoji as well as countless bug fixes and optimizations.

The report out of China only claims that Samsung has started testing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7, and Galaxy C9. It’s not known for sure right now when the testing process will be completed and when the company will start rolling it out for the aforementioned devices.

Android O Will Be Last Major Update For OnePlus 3, 3T

Tyler Lee August 11, 2017

At the rate phones are being released, it is safe to say that companies tend to stretch themselves too thin which is when when it comes to Android updates, many companies pick and choose which devices they want to focus on, and more often than not after a couple of years, you can kiss goodbye to said updates.

This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that OnePlus will be done with the OnePlus 3 and 3T after the Android O update. According to a post on the OnePlus forums, the company’s Head of Product Oliver Z revealed and confirmed that Android O will be the last major Android update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

However this doesn’t mean that OnePlus will be abandoning either handset. Both phones will still receive updates such as security patches from time to time, but don’t expect them to receive the next major Android update, which assuming Google keeps to their naming scheme should be Android P and should be released in 2018.

According to Oliver Z, “Android O is going to be the last Android version update we’ll release for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates.” That being said, it is unclear when Android O will be officially released. We heard a rumor last week that suggested that it could be this week, but so far we haven’t seen anything.

Nougat Update For Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) Released

Adnan Farooqui August 10, 2017


Having released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for some of its high-end models, Samsung is now turning its attention to its recent premium mid-range smartphones. Just yesterday, it started rolling out the Nougat update for the Galaxy A7 (2017). Earlier today, Samsung released the first firmware update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) that brings Android 7.0 Nougat.

Samsung’s new Galaxy A (2017) series was released back in January this year. Even though it was released a few months after Nougat arrived, Samsung chose to launch it with Marshmallow instead probably because it wanted the Galaxy S8 to be its first Nougat-powered smartphone.

The company has finally turned its attention to the Galaxy A (2017) series and is now sending out the latest iteration of Android for it. The first Nougat firmware update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) has been released in Russia.

Samsung has rolled out firmware version number A520FXXU2BQH4 for the Galaxy A5 (2017) in Russia today. It weighs in at over 1GB, unsurprisingly, as it’s a major platform update. It also includes the latest August security patch from Samsung and Google.

This goes to show that the company has got the ball rolling on the Nougat update for this particular handset. It’s obviously going to take a lot of time before this update is released for all Galaxy A5 (2017) users across the globe, but at least now they know that it’s only a matter of time before the update arrives.

Lenovo’s Phab2 Series Will Not Be Getting Android 7.0 Nougat

Tyler Lee August 10, 2017

Android OEMs aren’t particularly well known for being timely when it comes to issuing Android updates, and we guess we can’t really blame them. After all many of them have multiple handsets to juggle, so finding the time and resources to push the latest Android update might not always seem like a priority.

Unfortunately for those who own any of Lenovo’s Phab2 series of devices, you will be disappointed to learn that Lenovo will not be updating the Phab2 family of Android devices to Android 7.0 Nougat. This is according to Lenovo’s support page in which the Phab2 devices have been listed as having no upgrade planned, and that as far as upgrades are concerned, it has been marked as “complete”.

We’re not sure why the Phab2 devices are not eligible for the Android 7.0 Nougat update, but as far as an official release is concerned, you’d be out of luck. You could always try alternative methods of getting the latest Android build, such as through third-party ROMs, but if you’re not to familiar with the process of flashing ROMs then it might get a bit tricky.

It doesn’t seem like Lenovo has plans or any reason to change their minds about this, so like we said if you absolutely have to have the latest Android, then you’ll need to start researching which custom ROM is best suited for your needs.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) Nougat Update Released

Adnan Farooqui August 9, 2017


Samsung released the new Galaxy A (2017) series earlier this year, months after Google released Android 7.0 Nougat. However, since the company wanted the Galaxy S8 to be its first smartphone to come with Nougat out of the box, it launched the Galaxy A (2017) handsets with Marshmallow. The company has now started rolling out the Galaxy A7 (2017) Nougat update, finally.

It was reported last month that the Galaxy A7 (2017) running Android 7.0 Nougat had received its Wi-Fi certification. This is normally a good indication that an impending update is about to be rolled out in the near future.

Samsung has now started rolling out the much-awaited Nougat update for the Galaxy A7 (2017). The update has only been released in Thailand so far but it’s only a matter of time now before it’s released in other markets across the globe.

Since this is a major Android platform update, the file weighs in at 1.4GB, but that’s not surprising at all. It brings all of the features that are part and parcel of Nougat, including a revamped user interface.

Customers in markets where carrier-locked variants of this smartphone are sold will have to wait for a bit longer since carriers tend to hold up firmware releases due to their own checks and tweaks.

The Nokia 3 Will Receive Android O Update As Well

Tyler Lee August 8, 2017

The Nokia 3 is currently one of low-end smartphones launched by Nokia and HMD Global. Given that it is a low-end device, we suppose there isn’t much expectation from it in terms of updates for the future, as is usually the case for other low-end handsets from other handset makers.

However that doesn’t appear to be the case for HMD Global. Recently the company confirmed their plans to update the handset to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but it looks like they won’t be stopping there. In a recent tweet by HMD’s chief product officer, he has since confirmed that the Nokia 3 will be eligible to be updated to Android O as well.

Hi there! Yes it will

— Juho Sarvikas (@sarvikas) August 8, 2017

Note that Android O has yet to be officially released and at the moment, it is still in its developer preview phase. However it should be getting close to release considering we are at that time of the year where we can expect the new Pixel phones from Google to be launched, but the question is when it is released, when will HMD push out the update?

We suppose that is also quite an important question, but the good news is that it is expected to receive the update at some point in time in the future, so if you are thinking of getting your hands on it, know that it is good for at least one more major Android update.

Android O Official Release Expected Next Week

Adnan Farooqui August 3, 2017


Google recently sent out the final developer preview of Android O, the next major Android release, which meant that work on the public version has been completed. The final beta is usually a build of the public version that’s seeded to developers so that they can test it out before the company releases it to millions of users across the globe. According to a new report, Google might finally release Android O to the public next week.

Google is yet to confirm the official dessert moniker for Android O. The company has not yet confirmed what this version of Android is going to be called. Everyone is just referring to it as Android O for now.

According to the report, Google is going to start rolling out Android O to the public next week. The company’s own Pixel handsets will obviously be among the first few devices that receive said update.

Given the immensely fragmented nature of Android, it’s going to take a few months before this update is released for the flagship smartphones that have been released this year, smartphones like the Galaxy S8.

So, even if Android O is released next week, it’s going to be a long time before most of the Android users get a taste of the new version of Android.

Galaxy A3 (2017) Android 7.0 Nougat Update Released

Adnan Farooqui July 31, 2017


The Android 7.0 Nougat update is finally trickling down to more affordable handsets from Samsung. As expected, the company’s first priority was to release said update for its more expensive handsets. The company today released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy A3 (2017). This handset was released as part of Samsung’s new Galaxy A (2017) series that was released earlier this year.

The new Galaxy A series was launched back in January this year. The Galaxy A3 (2017) is accompanied by two other handsets, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A7 (2017). Both cost more and offer more specs than the entry-level model.

All three handsets were released some four months after Google had released Android 7.0 Nougat. However, they came with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, possibly because Samsung wanted the Galaxy S8 to be its first Nougat-powered smartphone.

Samsung has now started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update of the Galaxy A3 (2017) model number SM-A320F. The firmware update has been released in Russia so far but it’s only a matter of time before the firmware is released in other parts of the world.

This latest firmware release for the Galaxy A3 (2017) carries build number A320FXXU2BQG5 and aside from bringing all of the features that are part and parcel of Nougat, it also brings the latest monthly security patches for the handset.

Nokia 3 Android 7.1.1 Update Release Due Next Month

Adnan Farooqui July 31, 2017


HMD Global is trying to be very forthcoming with updates for the Nokia-branded handsets it has released so far. The company has confirmed that it’s going to release the Nokia 3 Android 7.1.1 update by the end of August. The Nokia 3 is HMD Global’s entry-level handset that’s just available in a handful of markets right now.

HMD Global launched the Nokia 3 with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard. There are already quite a lot of devices out there that have yet to receive the upgrade to Android 7.1.1. The Nokia 3 will certainly be one of the few that get to make this jump in the near future.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, confirmed via Twitter that Nokia 3 is going to receive its Android 7.1.1 Nougat update by the end of August. He decided to set the record straight on Twitter after receiving questions from users about when the update would arrive.

Sarvikas also added that the Android 7.1.1 update for Nokia 3 is going to be a global release once. So even though the Nokia 3 is only available in markets like India as well as some countries in southeast Asia and Europe, the update will actually be available globally.

It remains to be seen when the Nokia 3 is going to be launched in other markets across the globe, particularly the United States.
