BlackBerry Priv isn't being upgraded to Android Nougat

However, he noted that was a massive undertaking which required getting the device partners on board and that it will be next to impossible to repeat for updates to Android 7.0 Nougat and beyond.

It's been confirmed that the BlackBerry Priv smartphone will not be updated to Android Nougat. In case, you don't get the update notification, you can head over to Settings About Phone Update, to manually look for the update. At the same time, given that the Priv is such a security-focused handset, and there were plenty of improvements to the OS with Nougat, it's going to be difficult to recommend the phone, despite the continuation of security updates for the foreseeable future. A 5.1-inch screen coupled with narrow bezels and premium build quality make it one of the best phones one can comfortably hold in hand. How it goes moving forward is the question, and as usual we'll have to wait and see. Unfortunately for BlackBerry users will be facing these limitations. Thurber made the statement on the UTB Blogs podcast, while also confirming the KEYOne will receive an Oreo update. The S8 is without a doubt a better phone in terms of design and specifications, but S7 not far behind. For now, the KEYone is available in 35 countries, and by the end of the year, the company plans to offer the phone in 50 countries. The new smartphone is expected to be an all-touchscreen device with a focus on enterprise customers. According to the report, TCL's François Mahieu said the new phone will stand up to the reputation of BlackBerry's predecessors, like for rough handling and frequent travelers.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the first device from the electronics company to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. "We are just playing with different cards, mostly by pushing its strengths of battery life, security and durability", he said.
