The OnePlus 2 will not receive an update on Android 7.x nougat. For users of the second flagship killer, this is not good news, although they have alternatives. OnePlus damages itself in the long term.

OnePlus 2: Nougat Update canceled

On July 28, 2015, OnePlus presented its second attempt to replace conventional flagship, the OnePlus 2. First equipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop, an update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow appeared later. It remains the same. OnePlus has filed a nougat update for OnePlus 2 against Android Authority. The magazine quotes from a statement that OnePlus was not up to date at the time of the development of the OnePlus 2 software development team.

From the series of the self-clarified flagship killer have only received the OnePlus 3 and 3T a nougat update. With the OnePlus X and One, no nougat update is possible. However, a nougat update is to be expected in the case of a smartphone, which is about one year old to the nougat, especially if it is a top model of a manufacturer.

How plausible the reason for the renouncement of the nougat update is, can be judged from afar badly. However, OnePlus will not be able to hope for a great understanding of the customers. In the long term, the fact that the OnePlus 2 nougat update has been abandoned makes it doubtful whether the manufacturer is willing to update its products in the long term, especially since OnePlus had already announced an update to Android nougat , Doubtful reasons for an update cancellation are not exactly trust.
