Besides a Nexus or a Pixel, picking up any Android handset has long been a risky choice as far as relying on future updates go, and now OnePlus has confirmed that its OnePlus 2 handset won’t be getting the bump to Android 7.0 Nougat.
Although OnePlus did initially promise that Nougat would be coming to the 2015 flagship. The news was confirmed by the company directly to Android Authority.
Part of the reason behind OnePlus walking back on promises of a Nougat update seems to be the tumultuous time the firm has been having with its software department in general: the same year the OnePlus 2 launched, ties were severed with Cyanogen, leading to OnePlus developing its own, in-house version of Android.
The long-anticipated Nougat update for the OnePlus 2 would appear to be one of the casualties of that break-up, though with OnePlus now firmly committed to its own OxygenOS, the update process for its future flagships should run more smoothly.
