UMI Super, UMI Plus & UMI Max Nougat Update in December 2016
Everyone is excited about the Android Nougat. So am I and waiting to see when Samsung does it for my Galaxy On5 Pro. Fingers-crossed! Chinese carrier who one time didn’t provide any software update, are now seriously considering this. Some OEMs like UMI, Vivo, Oppo, Gionee have realized the importance of delivering the software update to the existing smartphones. UMI has planned to update UMI Super, UMI Plus and UMI Max to Android Nougat at this Christmas eve. This makes UMI as one out of many Chinese OEM to plan something special.
UMI Nougat Update Plan
It’s really nice to see that UMI Mobile has come up with Android Nougat software roll-out plan for their existing and qualifying smartphones.
Those are not only the UMI phones to get the Android 7.0 update, as UMI has something similar to other phones released in 2016 as well.
The following UMI phones will get to see the Nougat update –
UMI Rome X
UMI Super 2
UMI Super Edge
Apart from the above devices, there will not be any UMI devices added to the list. This list is final and the official one indeed. So cheer up for those who owns one of the above mentioned UMI phone.
UMI Diamond Nougat Update
Running on Android 6.0 out of box, a 2016 launched UMI Diamond is bound to get the Nougat update much early than other phones listed above.
UMI Diamond X Nougat Update
The $99 Diamond X is also slated to get the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The ETA however is unknown.
Last but not least, a brave move by UMI and we are hoping that upcoming mobiles by UMI will be running on Android Nougat out of box.
