Dear users,

I'm afraid this question is very too early yet but probably only later models will be r ...

Hi bencebacsi, first of all, I bought a UMI Super two weeks ago, so I would expect that such a new device receives updates for some time, since it's a good device with very good hardware. If it comes with android 6.0 it would be expected at least to support one or two major updates... at least. Major vendors provide support for a reasonable timeframe, such as 2 years.
Since there are some bugs on the device (namellyGPS), as we all know, it could be part of a major rollout.
Making a product is not just making it; it's all about the support you gonna get afterwards; or else users buy your phone once, and they won't buy anymore, right?
So please, keep us posted on this. Maybe the update to android 7 is simpler (?) but in software nothing is simple.. ;)

Regards

I'm also wondering, I'll just leave a post here so I can be notified on the answer.

Dear users,

I'm afraid this question is very too early yet but probably only later models will be released with Android 7. If anything changes, we will inform you in time.

Regards,
Bence

Thank you for quick reply!
However, I'm suggesting you should be porting at least Max, since it's the newest model, as well as Super as the strongest model.

Unfortunately, unless Google takes back control of Android updates there is really no motivation for OEMs to update to the latest version of Android. As of August 1st only 15% of Android users have adopted Marshmallow (Android 6.0). That percentage is bound to be even less for Nougat. Some OEMs won't even do security patches for crying out loud. Here's an interesting article on Android 7.0's features as well as a brief look into the Android fragmentation issue:

Why should you want to get Android 7 on Max, if you don't know if it'll be good or not? Let's first see how Android 7 will perform, it's too early for any conclusions.
I've preordered my Umi Max last week, now I'm waiting to get it after a coupe of weeks. I hope it'll be better than Umi Super, I returned it back to my seller, at least I hope the problems with the hardware should be solved.
