Android 7 Update
Android 7.0 update means we are not talking about when you device will be receiving the software update, its too early to talk about which devices will get the Android 7 update. We are typically talking here when the Android N will get released.
From past two years, Google has utilises Google I/O event to announce a new Android version. For Android 7.0 version too Google I/O 2016 is the right choice. Still we say it’s too early to take a final call on it because our assumption is based on last few years trend. According to PCAdvisor, the Android N Developer Preview is all set for debut on May 18 at Google’s annual software developer conference.
So first the Android N Developer previews will be made available for a number of devices, it will go through revisions and then the final Android 7.0 N version will be announced with a final name to it only in August or September this year.
