T-Mobile listed it’s carrier locked smartphones that will get Android 7.0 Nougat update

Android 7.0 Nougat made its official debut to supported devices earlier this week and now everyone is asking whether their handset will be enjoying the latest Google mobile OS. When it comes to major software upgrades, there are lots of criteria that needs to be meet before the update being prepared for a device. One should take into account the Software provider, the device manufacturer and the mobile carrier provider, that are responsible to release the update in a partnership.

And Today, T-Mobile has published the list of it’s carrier locked devices that will be receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update at some point. So far, T-Mobile listed only HTC and Samsung smartphones on it’s software update page. These are:

  • HTC 10
  • HTC One M9
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 7
  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

More devices will likely be added to this list. T-Mobile didn’t provide a timeframe for when it’s planning to start distributing the OTA to these devices. Don’t expect a update notification to your device anytime soon, as T-Mobile has just listed the devices for further software upgrade but has not started testing it yet.

T-Mobile mentions it on it’s software update page that software updates are a long process, which require a partnership between the software developer, the device manufacturer, and T-Mobile. After initial software is developed, the device manufacturer works with T-Mobile to customize the software, including changes for your device hardware, the T-Mobile wireless radios, and applications.
