The ZUK Z1 and ZUK Z2 Pro smartphone owners will soon receive an Android 7.0 Nougat update. This has been confirmed recently by no less than ZUK Chief Executive Chang Chen and Parent Company Lenovo.
ZUK Z1, ZUK Z2 Pro Update Next Year
ZUK Z1 and ZUK Z2 Pro smartphone owners will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat on January 2017. The ZUK Z1 however, will receive the beta version. This may puzzle and anger those who have this particular device. The reason however, is probably due to hardware issues. The ZUK Z1 smartphone carries the Snapdragon 801 processor and the stable Android Nougat build is possibly too much handle. There is the possibility that it may yet receive the stable version. The 801 processor though may need some update of its own to make it feasible. The Nougat Beta version is available for download on January 2017. The exact date however, has yet to be announced.

ZUK Z2 Pro users will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat version on January 28, 2017. Interestingly, ZUK Z2 owners have been left out of the Android 7.0 update.
