While a lot of Chinese smartphone brands are keen on providing powerful hardware for the price, there’s one side of the story that they sometimes overlook — software updates.
And with that, we commend Meizu for coming up with a list of their smartphones that will be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat.
This move from Meizu is really commendable. We hope that every tech company would also give importance to after-sales support. For a comparison, HMD Global — the current licensee of the Nokia brand — has already announced Android O support to their devices. This means that owners of the Nokia 3, 5, and 6 already has a guaranteed Android O update. That’s even despite the fact that the new 8.0 version will not be available until Q3 of this year.
Other than the latest devices, it is nice to see that Meizu is also updating their devices of last recent years.
- Meizu Pro 5
- Meizu MX6
- Meizu 6
- Meizu 6s
- Meizu 6 Plus
- Meizu Note series
The Android Nougat update is a commemoration to Flyme OS’s anniversary, which is the interface designed by Meizu that’s based on Android.
The updates will roll out in China on July 10, with support to other countries coming soon.
