Many mobile will not upgrade to 7.0 Android Nougat. Well, that we already knew, right? Occurs with each version. But no, not only there is a lot of normal of smartphones that is not going to upgrade to the new version, in addition to that, Google has done a sangria that will prevent many mobile update. It is curious that the culprit is Google.
The culprit is Google
Later we will be explaining why Google is the real culprit that many mobile phones, including some high-end who can perfectly execute Android 7.0 Nougat, will not be able to update. Generally, are the manufacturers them guilty, because not want to devote time and resources to update smartphones by which already not van to receive benefits. Already the have sold, and prefer to sell new mobile to update them earlier. However, no is this what takes place on this occasion. Rather, it is that Google has been with the requirements being that phones can be updated to the new version of the operating system. But, how is possible that Google is that set the requirements for the update if Android is a system operating free? As very simple.
And is that Yes, a manufacturer can launch Android 7.0 Nougat officially for any smartphone. But normally the manufacturers not only want Android 7.0 Nougat, want also the Google Apps, and the access to Google Play Store, the store of applications. So Google them ceda these applications, have that meet a series of requirements, and here is where is are with problems the manufacturers, because these requirements taxes for these versions, are too difficult of meet. But, how is possible that really be so difficult to meet?
Google no longer wants to mobile that does not meet expectations
It’s simple, Google has a series of services that want to form part of 7.0 Android Nougat, and which are present in all mobiles that officially updated to this new version. If they will not be able to run certain platforms or services, better to not update. That is what Google thinks. But of course, so really what is getting is that many mobile lose many functions that yes could count. What is requiring Google?
On the one hand, the mobile must have components that receive support from AOSP Android. This is not the case of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 801 Snapdragon Qualcomm processor. That means that mobile as the Sony Xperia Z3, the ZUK Z1, the OnePlus X or the Xiaomi my Note, among others, not be updated to the new version, at least not officially. Because of Google.
Another of the demands of Google is that smartphones are able to support the API graphics OpenGL ES 3.1 or Vulkan. The objective is that developers can now focus on these next generation APIs and forget the past to offer us the best games and compete with Apple and its iPhone. If your mobile phone can not support these APIs, Google is dead, literally. Graphics cards Adreno 300 and Mali-400, they are not able to support these APIs. That leaves out 432 models Mobile launched between this year and last year that cannot update to 7.0 Android Nougat.
Android 7.0 Nougat, a version looking to the future
The major problem with this, is that many of the functions of Android 7.0 Nougat, as the multi-window applications, or all the news coming on graphics aspects or interface, no longer see them the Android phones of this generation, but in those who arrive from now. From my point of view, this is not so bad. I am that says that a mobile should remain with the software it had when it was launched. Updates often bring problems of slowdowns and others. But I understand that many users may be annoying for the lack of updates, and in this case not be a question of the manufacturers, but demands of Google, it seems to me something worse. And when these requirements do not make much sense. Yes, it is true that some mobile phones may not execute Vulkan APIs, but it is that in many cases users did not want to use these new developments, but many of the others who arrived with Android 7.0 Nougat. In short, it is Google that has decided this time. Farewell to a generation of mobile, to give the Welcome to a new generation. For practical purposes, it will not be very different from what would have been in any of the cases, the truth, but even so it is interesting that Google is guilty of the no-actualizacion mobile.
