In a surprise twist, belying their history with updates, Australian online electronics retailer Kogan has begun rolling out an Android update.
The Kogan Agora 6+ is the first Agora branded device we’ve seen receive an update, with Ausdroid reader Gregory advising his handset has received the prompt to update overnight. The update, which is 1.4GB in size, updates the software from Marshmallow to Nougat (Android 7.0) with the security patch now sitting at April 5th 2017.
