Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) getting Android 7.0 Nougat update in India

Blackberry Priv

The handset was launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop back in November 2015 and received an update to the Marshmallow version previous year.

In an interview with UTB Blogs, Alex Thurber, BlackBerry Mobile Solutions General Manager confirmed that the BlackBerry Priv won't be getting Android 8.0 Oreo, and the DTEK59 and DTEK60 might be on a similar boat.

Questions also arose relative to the DTEK series of devices, and while Thurber could not say with certainty whether an update would come, it seems pretty unlikely. This can not be helped as throughout the Priv's existence, Blackberry has only offered one OS update to the device.

BlackBerry released the Priv as its first Android smartphone in 2015. The phone was launched at Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS and runs the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor paired with 3 GB RAM.

It is official - the BlackBerry Priv will not get software updates in Android Nougat form.

Priv users will likely be disappointed with this announcement, mainly because the handset received only one major OS upgrade since its launch.

This is why Thurber also confirmed that the KEYone would be receiving the Android Oreo update soon.

While the phone won't receive Nougat, the phone will continue to receive security updates, though as it's now 2 years old how long for isn't clear. It comes with a slide-out physical keyboard with smart touch capabilities.

The handset is armed with an 18-megapixel rear camera that comes with Schneider-Kreuznach optics, optical image stabilization, autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash light. It's on board storage stands at 32GB which can be expanded up to 200GB using a microSD card.

This unannounced device is expected to arrive as the so-called BlackBerry Krypton.
