Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, Other Phab Smartphones Won't Get an Android 7.0 Nougat Update
Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro, which was launched last year as the ‘world’s first Tango smartphone’ will not be receiving an Android Nougat update. The news was confirmed by Lenovo’s Support page that lists devices that are slated to receive an update. Unfortunately, the entire Lenovo Phab series seems to have been excluded from the update list.

Apart from the Phab 2 Pro, the company is likely to not roll out the Nougat update to Lenovo Phab Plus, Phab2, and Phab2 Plus. The confirmation may be heart-breaking for Phab device owners but also comes as a surprise as Lenovo has been steadily releasing Android Nougat updates for its select smartphones. Back in June, the Lenovo K6 Note and K6 Power started receiving the Android Nougat update. The company hasn’t entirely missed its Moto range as well. The Moto X Force recently started receiving the Android Nougat update alongside the Moto M smartphone.

Some of the devices, as per the Lenovo Support page, that have already received the Nougat update include the Lenovo Vibe K6, Vibe K6 Note, Vibe P2, and Lenovo Z2 Plus.

For those unaware, the Phab 2 Pro was launched as the first Tango smartphone, and was seen as the first commercial product from Google’s Project Tango team that was working on machine vision in mobile devices. The smartphone features a camera and sensor setup to enable motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning. All this is meant for augmented reality (AR) applications like indoor navigation, search, and gaming.

Lenovo has now shifted to stock Android experience which is said to make Android updates more efficient. Lenovo’s recently unveiled K8 Note has already been promised Android O update, when it’s made available.
