Android 7.0 Could Release Next Month, Nexus 5 to Skip the Update
Google had promised to deliver the Android Nougat update sometime this summer, and owners with the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P and more are getting excited. According to popular and highly reliable @evleaks, the Update shall be released next month. But sadly, Nexus 5 will not be getting it.
In an unusual move Google unveiled the Android Nougat Developer Preview ahead of Google I/O in order to give it more time to incorporate feedback from developers. At Google I/O the company discussed some new features that we’ll detail below, and announced that a public beta of Android Nougat was available.
Android 7.0 releases next month, with the 8/5 security patch. Sorry Nexus 5 owners, no Nougat for you 😢

This year Google put out the developer preview nearly three months earlier than prior models, so it’s safe to assume it will be released 2-4 months earlier as well. That means that any day now the company will begin talking about it, sharing information, and gearing up for the release.
