ZUK announces Android 7.0 Nougat update plans for the Z2 Pro and Z1

Vlad, 07 December 2016

Last month ZUK CEO Chang Chen revealed the fact that the Z2 would receive an update to Android 7.0 Nougat soon, and today the Lenovo-owned brand has confirmed that the tasty treat is headed to a couple of other devices too.

The Z2 Pro will receive the new software on January 28, 2017. The Android 7.0 release will come with ZUK's own ZUI 2.5 on top. Surprisingly, the Z1 will get a beta Nougat build at some point in January. The Z1 has the Snapdragon 801 chipset, and so far no device sporting that SoC has officially received a final, stable Nougat build. So it's unlikely that this will ever exit the beta stage, but it's nice to see Lenovo at least offer this to owners of its first ZUK-branded smartphone.

Oddly, today's announcement made absolutely no mention of the Z2 and its Nougat update. But we already know that it's in development for that model too, so hopefully it will launch in the near future. That said, it may just be that the Z2 will have to wait until February for the treat.
