Everything that has been going on with the Nexus devices and Android 7.0 Nougat hasn’t been surprising in the least. It has been foreseen for quite some time before the update launched that the Nexus 5 would be out of the picture beyond Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
And the three-year old device being the first to pick up the early build of the unofficial Nougat via CyanogenMod’s CM14 was pretty much expected as well, considering its following and the buzz surrounding Google dropping support for it.
But just because it’s dominating headlines, doesn’t mean that the developers helping out those on the Nexus 5 have forgotten about the Nexus 4 users. The 2012 device is, after all, as popular as its successor.
With enthusiasts getting to work so quickly on the Nexus 5 and Nexus 4, folks on some really popular and enduring devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One M7/M8 could also expect their own custom Nougat ROMs soon enough.
Nevertheless, it should be noted that at the moment, the early build of Nougat on CM14 isn’t exactly the most stable. Bugs and numerous issues are sure to abound, and this would be the case until the hardworking altruists at XDA-Developers finish ironing them out.
