Lenovo ZUK Series

The ZUK Edge is officially announced and will be shipping soon in all parts of the world where Lenovo does business. The device comes with Android 7.0 pre-installed, and should receive the 7.1.1 update by February, 2017. The ZUK Z2/ Z2 Pro, released earlier this year, which currently runs on Marshmallow will be the first devices to receive Nougat updates from Lenovo.

The Lenovo ZUK Z2 Plus has received the Nougat update thanks to a leaked firmware. However, the ZUK Z1 will not receive Nougat update as its hardware is not supported.

Lenovo Vibe Series

The Vibe K5/ K5 Plus will be the first in the series to receive Nougat update sometime in January, 2017. The Vibe P1/ P1 Turbo will receive their OS upgrades by Q2 2017 along with Vibe X3. But, the Vibe X3 c78 will not receive Nougat update, for its hardware is not supported.  The Vibe X1 is old enough not to be considered for further OS upgrades.

The Vibe S1/S1 Lite are budget phones currently running on Marshmallow. It’s unlikely that Lenovo would dedicate its time on such a device for OS upgrade. The Vibe Shot and Vibe K4 are also unlikely to attract dedicated Nougat updates. The MediaTek 6735P powered Vibe P1m also may face the same fate as Vibe K4. The Vibe C and Vibe A are low-end budget phones, which absolutely stands no chance to receive Nougat attention.

Lenovo Phab Series

Only the Phab2 Pro may get a chance to get the Nougat update as the Phab 2/Phab 2 Plus lack hardware support. The original Phab/ Phab Plus won’t be considered for the update as they’re older.

Lenovo K Series

The recently launched K6/K6 Note/K6 Power, all of which run on Marshmallow may never see Nougat light considering their budget nature. The K5 Note may receive the Nougat update in early 2017, but the K3 Note/K80 are out of question considering age factor. 

Lenovo A Series

The A series is budget in nature. The A7000/A7000 Plus/A7000 Turbo/A6600/A6600 Plus were all launched with Marshmallow and is likely to stay where they are.

The older devices like A616/A6010/ A6010 Plus/ A6000/ A6000 Plus/A5000/A3900/A3690/A2010/A1900A1000/A Plus would not be considered by Lenovo for further upgrades.

Lenovo C Series

Another pair of budget devices in C2/ C2 Power will also remain on the Marshmallow OS and won’t get newer OS.

Miscellaneous Devices

All of S60/P90/P70/P2 and Lemon 3 can all be deemed old to see Nougat OS running on them.

Lenovo devices are not so popular in the developer’s domain and doesn’t find much representation in custom ROM world. Lenovo has been producing decent devices in the budget mid-range with reasonable specs. It has taken its daring to the next level by announcing ZUK Edge. Lenovo, like other OEMs, looks all set to meet Google’s requirement of frequent OS upgrades by gearing up for its Nougat releases.

  51. 我是一个开发者。很想通过自己的努力支持和帮助联想的发展,但是作为一个开发者,在缺乏机型重要资料的情况下,很难针对联想机型进行开发。我手上有X3c70,为这款机型写DEVICE代码已经有5个月了,但是因为缺乏相应的资料支持,音频硬件总是不工作,或不完全工作,因此开发就变得相当迟缓。我很想加入VIBEUI团队,因为这样可以贡献自己的力量,也可以学习更多的知识。我想,联想完全有能力支持或帮助民间开发者,即使签署保密协议,因为这样的举措更能够挽回民心,让Lenovo像ONEPLUS一样,通过民间开发者改变命运、提高销量,让Lenovo、VIBEUI、MOTO、ZUK卖的更好,更具民心。我和我的很多朋友很喜欢MOTO Z,但是作为开发者的我们不敢购买,因为开发者的生命就在于对新事物的折腾、好奇,不能当作玩具玩的手机,开发者注定不会认可,望Lenovo深思。期望你们联系我!
    I am a developer. Would like to support their own efforts to help and help the development of Lenovo, but as a developer, in the absence of important models of the case, it is difficult for the development of Lenovo models. I have X3c70 on my hand and 5 months for DEVICE for this model, but because of the lack of data support, audio hardware does not always work or does not work, so development becomes quite slow. I would like to join the VIBEUI team, because it can contribute their own strength, you can learn more knowledge. I think Lenovo is fully capable of supporting or helping private developers, even if the signing of confidentiality agreement, because such a move is more able to restore the people, so that Lenovo like ONEPLUS, through private developers to change the fate and increase sales, so Lenovo, VIBEUI, MOTO , ZUK sell better, more popular. I and many of my friends like MOTO Z, but as a developer we dare not buy, because the developer’s life lies in the new things toss, curious, can not be used as toys to play the phone, the developer is doomed , Hope Lenovo thoughtfully. Expect you to contact me!
