    According to devs the Nougat firmware will arrive soon, it's under development.

    Soon? They have now moved onto android 7 firmware after delivering the last android 6 update 2 weeks ago (FW007A) - what is the normal turnaround for new firmware? I'd assume 3 months minimum, especially for a production release not just beta.

    So I suppose the question is why do you want it (the devs weren't touting massive benefits beyond current) and do you need it now or you just want to know it's coming eventually?

    Typo alert!
    They have now moved on to FW008. :)

    You are quite right I meant Android 7 not firmware 7. I've edited for clarity

    OK, but I believe there will be an Android 6, FW008 update in the interim!

    I hope a KRACK wifi fix is part of the planned push.

    As a client, under Android, Wifi is likely to be vulnerable.

    Yes been wating too long for this, meanwhile your competition is releasing great performing
    android 7 boxes with similar hardware to the u9 and i can confirm that these other units have
    no audio dropouts, a very longtime annoying problem.

    What's up with the Android 7 upgrade? I am thinking about selling and buying something w 7...not a good look... promise an upgrade and not deliver...shield is not that much more and they upgrade religiously... I'm starting to be disappointed...love the Minix...hate the Android 6

    Probably won't get a response...looks like a dead spot...sadly

    Guessing Minix is dead
