Outkitel U7 Plus owners can expect the Android Nougat update from now. Unfortunately a simple update is not an option. According to the company this is caused by a cross-OS update that comes with this update.
The update now takes two steps to follow. The update will be offered through OTA update.
- Click Wireless update to check for the latest version of Android 6.0 update OUKITEL_U7_Plus_V20.0_20161220. Download and install it.
- After this update check again through Wireless update for a new update. You will now get OUKITEL_U7_Plus_V0.9_20170112 offered through OTA. Before you start downloading it make sure you have at least 16 GB TF card inserted and set up as portable storage and the phone charged with 30 percent battery or more. The Nougat update is so massive it needs to use the extra TF card space for the installation. After the update finishes you can take the TF card out, but expect it can take even more than 1 hour to install the update successfully.
You can also install the Android Nougat update manually by flash. Just make sure you have all your data backed up and download the needed software below:
