Verizon Droid Maxx 2 updated to... Android 7.0 Nougat

The Moto X Play was released in 2015, as a larger version of the X Style with a much bigger battery. In the United States, it was rebranded to the 'Droid Maxx 2,' a Verizon exclusive. Both models shipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop, and were later updated to Marshmallow. The Moto X Style received Android 7.1.1 Nougat in September of last year (at least in India), but the Maxx 2 has been stuck with 6.0.

[Update: Rolling out to everyone] Moto X Pure Edition finally gets Android 7.0 Nougat update in US after a year of zero updates

Ah, Motorola. You were once one of the most enthusiast-friendly OEMs, yet you've now sunken down to a level deeper than possibly any other major phone manufacturer in this regard. Just a few years ago, your Moto X-series of phones were the absolute best phones on the market with updates: the Moto X (2013) beat the Nexus 4 out to 4.4 KitKat, and the Moto X (2014) did the same to the Nexus 5 with 5.0 Lollipop. These updates were rolled out mere days after Google officially launched them. However, it took over a year to update 2015's Moto X Pure Edition, the company's flagship at the time, to the now-dated Android 7.0 Nougat.

BlackBerry confirms the Priv won't get Android Nougat

It was the first Android phone from BlackBerry, it was a flagship device with a physical keyboard, and it was the last phone manufactured in-house by BlackBerry.

Verizon Ellipsis 8 HD tablet gets Android 7.0 Nougat OTA

History says we're not huge fans of Verizon's Ellipsis tablet series, but our bad opinion of them is a little tamed by the fact that Verizon bothers to at least roll one major update to them. That's the case with the Ellipsis 8 HD, which launched with Marshmallow back in November of 2016, and is now getting its taste of Nougat.

Once the OTA has rolled out to your tablet, you will have software version SUN1_20A10 and Android 7.0. That means multi-window mode and quick app switching, customizable quick settings, notification bundling and quick reply, and everything we've come to expect of Nougat.

ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) gets Android 7.0 Nougat OTA

When Corbin reviewed the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 — whoa, that's a mouthful — at the end of 2016, he called it the iPad Air running Android. The display and speed impressed him, but one of his major complaints was the software: both the added ASUS customizations and the fact that it ran Marshmallow gave him pause before recommending it. At the time, ASUS said that Nougat would come to the tablet, but wasn't sure when.

Well, it's now 6 months later and the ZenPad 3S 10 is finally getting Android 7.0 Nougat. Not 7.1 mind you, but it's Nougat nonetheless.

Never Settle: OnePlus confirms it won't update the OP2 to Android 7.0 Nougat

For having the slogan, "Never settle," the OnePlus 2 has caused owners to settle for less quite often. The phone itself wasn't well-received, due to the lack of NFC connectivity and other problems. And despite initially promising Android 7.0 Nougat for the OP2, there have been no releases or further news, leaving owners annoyed to say the least.
