It turns out that the devices with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800/801 in principle will not receive Android Nougat.

First, all these devices were released quite a while ago, in the 2013-2014 year, and secondly, they all work with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800/801. They say that the blame here is Qualcomm, but actually release date gives manufacturers the excuse why these gadgets will not get further support. Referred to as among the reasons for the lack of support for the new Vulkan API.

On this occasion spoke comrade LlabTooFeR, known for his development of firmware MaximusHD. He said that Qualcomm just not going to release drivers for Snapdragon 800/801, why work with Android 7.0 is impossible.
