BlackBerry has confirmed that the Blackberry Priv won’t get the Nougat update. The confirmation came from Alex Thurber, General Manager of BlackBerry Mobility Solutions.
As for the reason, Thurber noted that bringing together all the partners required for the whole effort would be next to impossible.
To recall, the BlackBerry Priv was released in November 2015. It came with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, but was updated to Android Marshmallow in April 2016. The device will continue to receive security updates though. It even received the latest security update in September 2017.
However, don’t worry for the BlackBerry KEYOne, company said that it will get updated to Android Oreo soon.
