Blu Life One X2 Nougat Update

The Blu Life One X2 is certain from our side to get the Android 7.0 Nougat. We will let you know once when the OTA update starts roll out and possibly it could happen early next year.

Expected Roll out in Q1, 2017

Blu R1 Plus Nougat Update




The Blu R1 Plus smartphone might be receiving the Android Nougat update but we would wait for official confirmation.

Blu R1 HD Nougat Update

Officially there will not be any software upgrade to Blu R1 HD, but unofficially there will be Android Nougat based custom ROMs will be ported. Time for XDA to bring in some creativity.

So, right there as the table says, currently there is not even one handset eligible for the Android Nougat update. We might see one or two of them getting through in Q4, 2016.
