Android 7 Nougat: the "old" 2014 eligible smartphones?

Android 7 Nougat: the "old" 2014 eligible smartphones?





As usual, users might have to wait long to see their precious smartphones spend Android 7 (aka Nougat), the new mobile OS from Google. First served are the owners of Nexus 6, 5X, 6P, 9, Player, and Pixel C. But Android manufacturers customers like Samsung, Motorola, HTC will have to wait ... that they fit Nougat, then deploy. And it will take even longer for devices purchased through an operator, with a specific overlay.

But some may never see the color. The problem is not the willingness of manufacturers or operators but Qualcomm side lock that provides the vast majority of SoC (chip + modem) for Android smartphones.

According to the developer LlabTooFeR, the chipmaker would thus not intend to provide the necessary drivers to motor terminals by the Snapdragon 800 and 801. These two processors are far from being as antiques themselves in numerous high-end handsets launched in 2013 and 2014 ... from there to talk about planned obsolescence, it is only a step. Others begin to cry foul, these smartphones are quite viable today.

Qualcomm was quick to react to this accusation but rather convoluted way, the US actually. The founder does not formally denies the information but blames for manufacturers who are the only ones to decide to subscribe to Qualcomm software support will ultimately be able to update.

"Qualcomm is working closely with clients to implement and support the various versions of Android on Snapdragon processors. The period during which a chipset is supported and versions of the OS available to consumers are subject to the cycle life products. We recommend that you contact the manufacturer of your device or operator for information on the support of Android 7.0 Nougat. "said the giant.

In short, it is the manufacturers who will decide to make their eligible "old" smartphones Snapdragon 800 and 801 but it seems that the impasse will be many. Hard to swallow for owners of Samsung Galaxy S5 or LG G3, yet far from being models obsolete.
