      Yeah you are right. Elephone promised 7.9 on their P9000 20 years ago. Funny enough it was also next month update.

    Man Elephone’s posts are full of two kind of people.
    -People praising Elephone products
    -People hating the people raising Elephone products.

    Then there is me… o.o

    It’s a very interesting news!
    Only Google Nexus and Pixel now have Nougat in this months.. so it’s really good that Elephone will have Andorid 7 before the end of this year!
    It’s really appreciated by the customers that trust on P9000 from the beginning!

    Whatever Android will be, android 6 or android 7, I care that the firmware is functional and bug-free, so if you have to drop it just to do it, I’d rather they work on a functional version 6.0, as until now they did!

    It is so great that they have started working on the P9000 Android Nougat software already. The community has asked about Nougat for P9000 and they have their answer – it is coming sometime in November. Great news for the community and P9000 phone owners too!

    This is so amazing! When i first saw Elephone community forums buzzing over these news, I was so amazed. This device – P9000 – really deserves to be updated to the most up to date software, because not only it’s one of the most successful product lines from this company, but also because it also has such a large community around it and a very big users base as well!

    Awesome news, now community can not complain about bad after sale service anymore, because they were really good with updating, fixing and overall maintaining this model series. Moreover, they had promised Android Nougat for this phone and so far it seems like they are not going to break their promises 🙂

    Amazing! I love that they have already started working on this and shared a demo video with their users. Can’t wait for more of these videos and the initial release of course! November, i am ready for you!

    Yay, this is so good. Was waiting for them to announce this and then they did it on facebook! The developers better deliver it without bugs to us, cause else it will disappoint the community. Well anyway, this is great and i am sure everyone has circled November in their calendar with a red marker haha

    Good to know Elephone is working on Nougat. Hopefully in future they will provide Nougat out of the box. Because having the latest version is always something interesting. 😉

    October 12, 2016

    Good news that Elephone developers are doing really good and hard work. Hopefully they will roll out the update just in time as they committed because November is not so far.
