Google may launch Android 7.0 Nougat as soon as Friday.
This particular prediction came from known and generally reliable leaker Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, in a tweet on Saturday. “Android 7.0 releases next month, with the 8/5 security patch,” Blass said in the tweet. Assuming Blass is correct, an August launch would be early for a new release of Google’s mobile operating system, which in recent years has gotten off the ground in October or November.
But an August release doesn’t mean Android device users can start nibbling at Nougat right away. Attribute the delay to the Android upgrade process. After Google launches a new version, phone makers and wireless carriers must test it on every device before they can plan and implement a rollout. That means Android users often have to wait months to receive the latest version.
