The seven-year old HTC HD2 can run Android 7.0 Nougat


Android developers have very high regard for the #HTC #HD2 from 2009. Even though the phone has long been discontinued, it is one of the most customizable Android smartphones available out there. This is quite ironic as the phone originally debuted with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional. Even though manufacturers struggle to send out Android updates to relatively new devices, the HD2 has shown them the way time and again.

Well, some developers have now managed to port Android 7.0 Nougat onto the device, which is quite a surprise really, given that most phones from 2014 are seemingly not getting the update. Sure, things won’t be too smooth with the HD2’s hardware, but it’s still quite a remarkable feat by the developers to get this timeless device running the latest and greatest version of Android.

It is said that only the display, sound, and Wi-Fi are functional as of now, which means it’s not quite up there to become to your daily driver. The device is apparently running CyanogenMod 14 with the NRD90M release of Android 7.0 Nougat.
