Android 7.0 Nougat or the Android N, is the newest platform from Google for both of its phone and tablet. The giant tech company did not wait to introduce the Android N at the Google IO 2016 unlike other updates so as to give developers a chance to tinker with the update.

Nexus and other phone have already gotten the free update. The time of the release depends mainly on the device as well as the manufacturer.
