After purchasing Lenovo Z2 Plus in India I was in search for the information on the Android 7.0 aka Nougat update with no luck, that is until now. There is good news and then there is bad news.
Good news is finally I can confirm that Lenovo has a release date planned for the Z2 Plus. The bad news is you will have to wait until its May this year according to their upgrade matrix. But if you want, you can sign up for their beta release and get the update really early. For this, follow the instructions below.
- Goto this link
- Translate the page to English unless you can read Chinese
- Fill out the form they have given in their first post in that page
- Register in that forum just in case.
Beware, the update you will receive through this will be buggy and may not be so user friendly. So its better to back up all your data before upgrading. As for more details about the beta release I don’t have any information, but I will surely update here as soon as I get it.
