After months of rumours and leaks, the new Android 7.0 Nougat is finally ready to hit our phones and tablets.
The basic details of the new version of the operating system haven’t changed since we first heard all about it a few months ago. This means that it is a decent update but without any Earth-shattering changes to get overly excited about.
Android 7.0 is getting brought on the brand new LG V20 devices. It will then pop up on the upcoming HTC Nexus HTC10 and HTC One M9 phones that will be out this autumn.
It is also getting rolled out on the Android Beta Program that will benefit owners of the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P or Nexus Player.
Among the most exciting changes we will see on the Android Nougat will be those that give enhanced graphics and visual effects. Another important point is the way in which it will consume less battery power, leading to a longer battery life which is also helped by the Doze feature.
Other changes will give up a whole pile of new emojis and better notifications. Quick settings controls and multi-location support are other aspects of Android 7.0 Nougat that the people at Google seem especially proud of.
When the new version of Android was announced the new assistant, the Allo messaging app and the video calling feature Duo were among the other big selling points mentioned.
The new multi-window mode could also come in very handy for those people who want to use their tablet instead of a laptop for work purposes. It is also said to be highly suitable for virtual reality, which is going to pretty useful before too long we think.
