ANDROID 7.0 NOUGAT is now available, which means the slow trickling of the update to non-Google smartphones has begun.
Rumour has it that no Snapdragon 800- or 801-powered devices will receive the update. Qualcomm reportedly won't release updated graphics drivers for the duo of chips which, given Nougat's added support for the Vulkan API, means that devices such as the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 are unlikely to receive an update to Android 7.0.
With that in mind, we've put together a handy schedule of when you can expect Android 7.0 to arrive on your device. We'll update this article as soon as we get more details.
BlackBerry hasn't yet confirmed when owners of the BlackBerry Priv or DTEK50 will receive the bump to Android 7.0, but the firm has promised a boost in device security when the update eventually arrives.

Supported devices include the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Pixel C, along with the little-known General Mobile 4G Android One handset. Of course, the firm's new Pixel and Pixel XL handsets run Nougat out of the box.
2013's Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 tablet won't be supported by Android 7.0, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that neither device was included in Google's beta testing programme.
HTC has also confirmed that Nougat will be rolling out to unlocked versions of the HTC One M9, One A9 and network-locked versions of these devices.
Honor 8 users in the UK can get their mitts on a beta version of Android 7.0. Full details on how to grab it are available on the firm's website.

While Samsung has yet to confirmed when it will begin its Android 7.0 rollout, the firm has launched a beta programme allowing Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users to take Nougat for a spin before its full rollout. This is available to owners of SIM-free handsets only on a first come, first serve basis.
According to XDA-Developers, Sony has started pushing out Android 7.0 Nougat to owners of its flagship Xperia XZ. It's apparently arriving on handsets in Australia, the Netherlands, Russia and Turkey, but there's no word yet on its UK arrival.
