Android 7.0 Nougat is the latest version of Google’s Android operating system. Google first talked about this OS earlier this year during Google I/O, and the company had started rolling out the update to the existing Nexus devices (some of them) at the end of last month. Android 7.0 Nougat has lots of new features to offer, and some companies already confirmed which devices they plan to update to the newest version of Android, while LG had already introduced a device which will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, the LG V20.
That being said, most of you have probably heard of UMi, a China-based company which releases quite a few smartphones every year. This company had introduced a number of compelling devices in the last year or so, and the company has just confirmed that they intend to update quite a few of them to Android 7.0 Nougat. UMi has said that the Android 7.0 Nougat update is coming to their devices on December 24th, well, to some of them. The UMi Super, UMi Max and UMi Plus will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat on December 24th, while additional devices will also get the update soon after that, though UMi did not say which other devices can we expect to get the update.
Now, for those of you who don’t know, UMi’s devices ship with a relatively light version of Android. This company tends to include a couple of their own apps and gestures on their smartphones, but you won’t exactly find bloat on them, or anything of the sort, which are always great news. This essentially means that you’ll get pretty much all features Android 7.0 Nougat has to offer, and that they should function as Google planned. Now, as part of this update, UMi’s devices will get a new and improved version of Doze, new features in the notification shade, Google Now on Tap, etc. Redesigned parts of the OS will also be included here, and it remains to be seen what UMi apps will be included along with this update. In any case, stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted.
