We hope so
Google dropped Android N developer preview today, and as expected multiple smartphones from their Nexus line of devices including last year’s flagship, the Huawei-built Nexus 6p will be able to download and try the Developer Preview (think beta) of Android 7.0.
One particular phone from the list intrigued us though: along with the usual suspects of the phones that are eligible for the Android Beta Program to download and install the developer preview which include the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, and Pixel C, was the General Mobile 4G. If you’re not aware, the Android One device made by General Mobile in Turkey and it’s almost the same device that Cherry Mobile launched here in the PH, which is the One G1. It’s also the only device that’s eligible for the Android N Developer preview not part of the Nexus program.
The Android One program closely mirrors the Nexus lineup as far as Android updates go, with the Cherry Mobile One G1 getting an update to Android 6.0 Lollipop in the weeks following its announcement. It’s not too far-fetched to hope that the One G1 will also be able to get in on the developer preview action via the Android Beta Program, but since we don’t have an One G1 here with us right now, your guess is as good as ours.
