Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed exactly when other smartphones like the Mi 5s, Mi Note 2 and Mi Mix will get the update to Android Nougat. But it’s likely not to be until early 2017. Bad news for owners of the Mi 2, 2S, Mi 3 and Mi 4 though, as the hardware doesn’t live up to the requirements for Nougat.

Incompatible smartphones

Nougat supports the Vulkan API for top-notch gaming graphics, and this requires hardware that can support Open GL ES 3.1. Mandatory support of OpenGL ES 3.1 was introduced just before Android 7.0 was finalized by Google. That means almost all the top phones from 2014 and those with Snapdragon 800/801 are inherently incompatible with Android N. This includes the Sony Xperia Z3, Z3 compact, Nexus 5, OnePlus X, Moto X (2014), HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy S5.

So , this a list of device that will have Android 7.0 update .
