BlackBerry Priv will not receive Android 8.0 Oreo update

Share

Consequently, it seems as though owners of the BlackBerry Priv and other devices left behind will have to turn to custom ROMs should they wish to see a more recent version of Android grace their device. However, security updates will still be pushed out. The company has confirmed that it won't be releasing any Android Nougat or Oreo update for its Priv smartphone.

The BlackBerry Priv launched with Android Lollipop and was updated to Marshmallow later even though the phone came after the announcement of Marshmallow.

At that point of time, the Priv is in its final active days hence it fully deserves a final OS update.

TCL, the company that builds and designs BlackBerry phones, is reportedly planning to launch a younger brethren of KEYone, and could launch in October.

Although, BlackBerry will continue to support its phones with minor security updates, the fate of KEYone, which is made by TCL still remains in question.

This unannounced device is expected to arrive as the so-called BlackBerry Krypton. The smartphone sports a 5.4-inch AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution. There's a 18MP rear camera with f/2.2, OIS, and PDA and 2MP front camera.

As The Register notes, Samsung doesn't seem to have had any problems pushing out an Android Nougat update to Samsung Galaxy S6 owners - despite that device being launched six months before the Priv. It was powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 and had 3GB of RAM - identical to the LG G4. It's on board storage stands at 32GB which can be expanded up to 200GB using a microSD card. No Nogat update sadly, but on a positive note, the device comes with added features like DTEK security and BlackBerry Hub.
