Following the release of Android 7, three manufacturers have announced which devices will get an update to Google's latest operating system.

Google released Android 7 Nougat some days ago (find all new features here) and announced also which Nexus devices will get an update. Now, also the first smartphone manufacturers have reacted.

Sony announced that the following models will get an update: Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia X, Xperia XA, Xperia XA Ultra and Xperia X Performance. The update will be rolled out to devices step by step but Sony has not yet announced a starting date. They did, however, talk about "improvements we’ve made to the user experience" and that they will announce further details soon. It has not been stated whether the list is final or if further devices will follow.

HTC said via Twitter, that only the HTC 10, One A9 and One M9 will get the update to Googles latest mobile operating system.

Lenovo/Motorola have announced (according to golem.de) that the Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto Z will get an update. Whether there will be further devices from HTC and Lenovo getting the update has not been said up until now.

It will be interesting to see what Samsung has to say about this. All we now up until now is that the phable Galaxy Note 7 might get the update but that is also only a rumour. However, users of high-end-devices should not be too worried. It is quite certain that most manufacturer's will supply an update at least for these devices.
