Recently a new and fully fresh information arouses and shows that a wide range of popular flagship devices basically, which are based on SoCs 800 and 801 will not receive the Android Nougat update.

Some OnePlus, Moto, Samsung Devices Won’t Get Android 7.0 Nougat
The arrival of Android Nougat finally arrives, as usual, it also brings the question of which devices will receive this new version. In addition to the Nexus, we all know very clearly that they will receive this version, but, little more is known that how and who will receive the update.
But new information arouses and shows that a wide range of popular flagship devices will even be left out. All the devices which are based on SoCs 800 and 801 are excluded, yes, now many of you might getting shocked after reading this, but, it is true, and all this happens because of the Qualcomm.
Apart from the tech giant Google, smartphone manufacturers themselves are only responsible for the part of the components which are used in Android updates. It is only the manufacturers who connect their hardware to the new operating system.
Uncertainty about which devices will receive the Android nougat is still great, and the expectation on the confirmations of brands has left the Android smartphone users apprehensive since the Google has left some of its iconic devices out.
A Tweet came from the LlabTooFeR Twitter account which shows some new ideas on new devices that will stay out of this update, due to the fault of their own chipset manufacturer Qualcomm.

However, the decision yet has not been formally announced by the maker of Snapdragon processors, Qualcomm, but this decision is only for not to create and release any graphics drivers for the 800 and 801 CPUs.
The list is long, but for example, this decision ensures immediately that the flagship devices like OnePlus X, Moto X (second generation), Sony Xperia Z3, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will not receive the upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat.
This is another factor that it will simply make increase the fragmentation of Android. The devices that will be left out are not new, but it was hoped that they might receive the Android 7.0 Nougat without any problem, which is fully depending only on the manufacturers.
